If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Michael Bravo.

This paper will present an analysis of the ways in which mobilities are assembled into various sociotechnical systems, how those systems come to be path-dependent structuring practices and habits, how such paths are almost all oil-dependent, and how oil is just such a problem in the contemporary world. The paper will draw upon John Urry’s ‘Societies beyond Oil’ (Zed, 2013) which demonstrates the extraordinary ‘oiling’ of society in the last century and the many problems oil generates within the present.
