Séminaire AJEI “India matters” : “Women’s commuting strategy and digital adoption”

On November 18th, 2022, Pauline Baudens ( Sciences Po – FinEst Centre for Smart Cities – Tallinn University of Technology) will give a lecture on “Women’s commuting strategy and digital adoption. The case study of employees doing desk work in the IT sector in Pune, India”.

Abstract: This paper investigates the transformation of commuting practices of highly privileged women doing desk work in a multinational in Pune, India. The digital, accelerated by COVID, is at the origin of new transport strategies, facilitating mobility and making teleworking possible. Qualitative interviews were conducted with 15 female participants, belonging to a homogeneous social group in appearance. Their (im)mobility strategies were analysed. The results demonstrate that the evolution of commuting practices is closely related to comfort and the adoption of digital solutions. It argues that diverse strategies were adopted within the sample. However, considered as a constraint, commuting seems commonly avoided, privileging teleworking when possible. Therefore, we conclude with the adoption of new (im)mobility strategies that result in teleworking, and in using applications to order transport and commute.

The discussant for this session will be Vandana Vasudevan (Université Grenoble Alpes – ComUE).
The seminar will be held in Aix-Marseille University at the Maison de la Recherche (room 2.44).

The session will also take place on Zoom 18th November, 2:00 pm CET/ 6:30 pm IST (Join the Zoom meeting here)
