Mobilities Pedagogy Workshop
This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend a workshop at Wilfrid Laurier University that was focused on Mobilities Pedagogies. Mobility studies is a wide-ranging and expansive field that covers a large number of topics, from migration to urban infrastructure to digital data networks. It is a field that uses the lens of mobility to address many of the most pressing humanitarian, environmental, urban, and technological issues of our time.
My interest in mobility studies comes from both a performance studies and disability studies perspective. This workshop was an exciting opportunity to hear from a number of scholars from all different disciplines about their pedagogical approach to mobility studies.
