Title:
Where have we come from? Where are we going to? Academic research on cycling
Authors:
Cox, Peter
Abstract:
The lecture gives an overview of the emergence of academic research into cycling and the bicycle over recent decades. It identifies major themes and disciplinary areas in which cycling studies are currently being made and organisational strategies to support these studies. It explores the potential and the necessity for cross disciplinary studies and the opportunities for international collaboration. It considers the tension between advocacy and academic disinterest/distance and looks forward to ways in which studies in cycling can be integrated for greater impact.
