Abstract [en]

Modern society can be said to be a "car society" since it has been designed to fit the needs of the private car. This paper discusses the relation between cars, mobility, planning and sustainability in cultural perspectives. It discuss the historical roots and contemporary landscape of car culture and the sociocultural factors that reproduce it, such as planning and infrastructure (urban-rural-traffic); the car as sign of status, adulthood, flexibility, masculinity, and the car as "space of one’s own" in embodied habits. In recent years, cars and mobility have been subject to several studies and interdisciplinary research projects. Many of these highlight the ambivalent position of the car: on the one hand as symbol of individual freedom, mobility and speed, but on the other as the source of problems as fatal accidents, pollution, smog, noise, congestion, road rage, barrier creation, unjust land use, erosion of natural cultural heritage, reduced bodily exercise/movement, hazardous particles and not at least climate change. An important point is the gap between science and policy: for decades research has problematised increased motoring, and with the goals to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, most research and government agencies says that driving need to reduce. In spite of this motorized mobility is reinforced on local, national and global level. However we can initiatives around the world that that challenge "car-normativity", which will be discussed. What kinds of mobility and movements are sustainable for humans, other beings and the world?
