55408-01 - Seminar: Future Mobilities 3 KP

Semester Herbstsemester 2020
Angebotsmuster unregelmässig
Dozierende Paul Burger (paul.burger@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt Modern mobility is an asset for our quality of life as well as a burden for our socio-ecological system. The well-known burdens include the strong emissions coming from fossil fuel based transportation services such as cars or planes, its heavy land use (airports, streets etc.) or high costs for infrastructure. The assets encompass opportunities to get in touch with other cultures, to experience historic monuments or beautiful landscapes or to establish a European or even global rather than a national identity by being connected to many different places. Mobility is normally related to an individual or social purpose (commuting, leisure, vacation, shopping, conferences etc.). Against the backdrop of the heavy burdens stemming from modern mobility patterns, however, not only the means for mobility, especially cars and planes, but also the purposes have become seriously challenged. Accordingly, the fundamental question in transforming the current to a more sustainable mobility system is in what respect the emissions could be substantially reduced by considering at the same time in what respect the assets should/could be transformed/safeguarded.
Lernziele The goal of the seminar is to provide the student a social science based knapsack to analytically deal with future mobilities. This includes among others an understanding of mobility in terms of (strongly routinized) social interactions, approaches in and evidence from recent research on the relation between quality of life and mobility, or insights from research on future mobility trends (including digitization).
