The keynote speaker for this year’s Symposium will be Prof. Malene Freudendal-Pederson, who has published extensively on the status of cycling in Copenhagen and the politics of planning urban mobilities in light of climate change
Malene Freudendal-Pedersen is Professor in Urban Planning at Aalborg University and have an interdisciplinary background linking sociology, geography, urban planning and the sociology of technology. Her research focuses on mobilities practices and its impacts on everyday life, cities and societies. That also includes extensive work on cycling. She is co-founder and editor of the Journal Applied Mobilities and the Book-series Networked Urban Mobilities, both at Routledge. Her newest book Making Mobilities Matter develops a theoretical framework for understanding everyday life and its mobilities in a mobile risk society and critiques the technocratic views that still dominate transport politics and research.
