Activity: Talks and presentations › Conference presentations
• In this talk, I will introduce different discourses of speed and then present some of my recent investigations of everyday mobilities in natural settings, which include biking, downhill skiing, and the use of mobility scooters. In all these cases, a mobile video ethnography was conducted to capture the local organisation of the everyday mobility practices from the participants’ perspectives. Video recordings of these diverse mobility practices are analysed in order to document some of the ways in which people organise and mobilise their bodies, machines, emotions and talk in constitutive relation to speed. The focus will be on everyday experiences of (relative) speed in a variety of circumstances, on the character of surfaces that afford movement, and on the moral order of assisted e-mobility. Even seven kilometres per hour can be dangerously fast!
