Sam Merrill Joins the Executive Committee of T2M
September conference in Finland and Russia
During their recent cross-border 11th Annual Conference in Kouvola, Finland, and St Petersburg, Russia, on Transport and Borders, Sam Merrill was elected to the Executive Committee of the International Association for the History of Transport, Traffic and Mobility [T2M].
Sam will serve a two-year term and in January joins the editorial team responsible for their quarterly newsletter. He plans to contribute further to the Association’s aim of opening up transport, traffic and mobility history to interdisciplinary research approaches, drawing on his background in archaeology, heritage studies and cultural geography.
In St Petersburg it was announced that the next annual conference would take place in Philadelphia, at Drexel University, under the provisional title Risky Mobilities, organised by Professor Mimi Sheller.
