Arnaud Passalacqua is interested in the challenges of mobility in contemporary society by focusing on the systems they constitute, made up of material artefacts as well as imaginaries and knowledge, embedded in the long term of uses and materialities. He has thus worked on urban transport, bicycles and railways, with an approach crossing transport systems, in different geographical contexts and with the help of concepts that make it possible to question these technical systems: public space, transnational circulation, innovation, etc.
