We invite researchers who work with mobile communication as a cultural, spatial and social phenomenon to join us for this two-day round-table workshop hosted by the Media Studies Department at Aarhus University. We will emphasize the spatial aspects of mobile communication and mobile internet. The workshop aims to reflect and discuss general theoretical perspectives, empirical case studies and methodological implications of studying mobile internet and locative media in relation to mobility and place. We have invited an international panel of speakers in order to encourage and facilitate the development of an international research network on mobile communication.
