A Decade (almost) of Brown bag Seminars: Anniversary Report on the 'Brown Bag' Seminar Series at Centre for Mobilities and Urban Studies (C-MUS) 2009-18

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingBook chapterResearch

Abstract

This collection of BB Seminar Series abstracts and titles is a celebration of sorts. The Center for Mobilities and Urban Studies (C-MUS) was established at Aalborg University in 2008. The 10th Year Anniversary conference to be held in August 2018 is a testament to this. It is not too much to say that during this decade C-MUS has grown to become an internationally well-recognized research center under the heading of the ‘new Mobilities turn’. However, a research center also need a daily life of mundane (but important) practices. This collection of abstracts takes you through the BB programs since the very first in the spring of 2009. Along the road, the author of this small report has not only insisted on keeping the BB series alive as an important institution in C-MUS but also meticulously kept a historic record of all the seminars. This report argue that by ‘looking back’ to the rich and diverse series of BB presentations we get a sense of the academic debates and ‘matters of concern’ for the researchers in C-MUS. Moreover, this may also serve as an important pointer for the future. So next to presenting ‘old stories’ the report is an invitation to reflect upon the next decade of Brown Bag Seminars!
