Call for Papers | “Media, Society and Cycling Cultures”, Special Issue of Eracle. Journal of Sport and Social Sciences. Call ends March 31, 2022
The interdisciplinary field of study ‘Cycling and Society’ represents a part of mobility studies. Cycling studies start from a critique of ‘automobility’, the dominant paradigm of contemporary mobility. They try to outline post-car mobility scenarios and focus on ’velomobility’. With the aim of contributing to this field of study, this call for papers invites articles focusing on the increasing mediatization and platformization of the experience of cycling.

On the positive side, there may be gains in accessibility and inclusion; on the negative, longer distance cycling may deter shorter (slower) cycling trips.
