Transport: as the spatiotemporal mediation of people and goods
Automobility: as the personal (and commercial) mobility afforded by the democratization of access to systems that allow individuals to move in a self-directed fashion through the space and time of their daily lives
(Kurani, Turrentine, Heffner, and Congleton 2003)
Is there greater stability in the variety of collective self-regulation?
(Kurani and Turrentine, 2002)
Kurani and Turrentine have focused on a portion of Giddens’ theory they call theories of “reflexively organized lifestyle”
(Kurani and Turrentine 1997)
They use a notion of lifestyle defined by Giddens as:
“…a more or less integrated set of practices which an individual embraces…because they give material to a particular narrative of self identity…it is ‘adopted’ rather than ‘handed down.’ Lifestyles are routinized practices, the routines incorporated into habits of dress, eating, modes of acting, and favored milieu for encountering others; but the routines followed are reflexively open to change in light of the mobile nature of self identity.” (Giddens, 1991)
