Landscapes in human mobilities

Postdoctoral project supervised by Benedetta Castiglioni

Human mobilities change in close connection with landscape transformations, along different scales, speeds and with uneven patterns. This correlation is reciprocal: landscapes are produced by mobilities, reflecting political negotiations and workings of power, but mobilities are also affected by landscapes, in a complex process of landscape co-creation through motion, which involves place attachment, landscape awareness and enskillment. This research is devoted to the analysis of this dual relationship and it focusses specifically on low-carbon human mobility practices, such as bicycle tourism practices. Such landscapes in motion will be analysed through the integration and the analysis of direct experiences and digital information, in order to explore the multi-dimensional facets of landscapes in human mobilities.
