Research Platform Mobile Cultures and Societies

Interdisciplinary Studies on Transnational Formations

The research platform investigates phenomena and conditions of cultural and social mobility.

By merging different disciplinary approaches, theories and procedures we develop new methodological, structural and contentual categories of research in the field of Mobility Studies at the University of Vienna. In particular, we focus on aspects facilitating and resisting mobility and their representation in different media.

Situated within an international research network, we aim to anchor the virulent issue of mobility in the intra- and extra-university public through international exchange, conferences and lectures and continuous support and involvement of young scientists.
