Event Details

David Morley [Goldsmiths] - Geographies of Communication: The Migrant, the Mobile Phone and the Container Box

This talk will address contemporary theorisations of the new ‘teletechnologies’ and their capacities to transcend social divisions and to compress space and time – supposedly leading to the much-advertised ‘death of geography’. All this is occuring in the context not only of processes of globalisation and de-territorialisation and the rise of new forms of (hyper) mobility, but also of the proliferation of boundary-policing. The talk will take, as its empirical foci, three contemporary emblems of mobility - the migrant, the mobile phone and the container box.

My concerns lie at the interface of communications and cultural geography and I will pose questions as to how we can best understand the changing relations between the virtual and the material realms (and between modes of communications and transport) in the contemporary world. [Image: World travel and communications recorded on Twitter by Eric Fischer - CC BY 2.o]
