New technologies frequently challenge our notions of distance by shifting perceptions of time and space which, in both subtle and radical ways, alter our relationships to our physical environments and social networks. This symposium focuses on recent advances in mobile technologies and new media and the ways that they are complicating, expanding, and disrupting our understanding of temporal, physical, and social distance. Papers presented will explore this topic through a variety of technologies that will help illuminate the changes, challenges, opportunities, and disorientations we face and their implications for the future.
