Call for papers – Urban Mobility 2012


Faculty of Humanities in cooperation with Faculty of Public Health of Airlangga University will hold its 3rd International Conference. The main theme of the 2012 conference is “Urban Mobility: Its Impacts on Socio-Cultural and Health Issues”. The conference seeks to bring analysis in the field of humanities and health sciences to explore and redefine social relationships, religious identities, gender identities, social norms, and health issues in urban societies characterized by rapid pace of  changes.


The general objective of this international conference is to understand moving urban societies from multidisciplinary perspectives. Specifically, the objectives of the conference are:

  • to provide a forum for sharing and learning ideas, developments, and research findings on socio-cultural and health issues in the domain of urban studies.
  • to capture mobile societies more comprehensively. As this will be an interdisciplinary conference, the phenomena of these moving societies will be analyzed from different perspectives, such as from the perspectives of Cultural Studies, Literature, History, Sociology, Law, Psychology, Medicine, Public Health and others.
  • to redefine social relationships, religious identities, gender identities, and social norms of urban societies from multidisciplinary perspectives.
  • to build a collaborative partnership among universities, so that the issues which become the concerns of this conference can be discussed more elaborately.


The main theme of the conference is “Urban Mobility: Its Impacts on Socio-cultural and Health Sciences”. The program committee welcomes original contributions on the following sub-themes:

  • shifting gender and sexual identities
