What Do We Do?

Urbanisation, human mobilities, and digitisation are major drivers altering spaces and societies from local to global scales. The Transient Spaces & Societies Research Group takes a critical perspective on these cross-sectional themes and scrutinises how social practices and power relations shape them.

We are an interdisciplinary team based at the Department of Geography at the University of Innsbruck.
