2019 (English)In: Integrating Gender into Transport Planning : From One to Many Tracks / [ed] Christina Lindkvist Scholten and Tanja Joelsson, Basingstoke & New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2019, 1, p. 199-220Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter discusses cycling promotion and modal conflicts in public space with a particular focus on men, masculinities and transport planning. It draws on three inter-related examples: interviews with cyclists about cycling; media reports on cycling; and cyclists’ online discussions on vulnerability. The first two examples illustrate how men and masculinities can be framed as both solutions and obstacles to achieving more sustainable mobilities through more cycling. The third example demonstrates how cycling implies a particularly vulnerable and conflicting position in the traffic hierarchy with implications for men and masculinities. The conflicts over urban space exemplified here illustrate how traditional transport planning has prioritized automobility and, by doing so, reproduced male norms in the transport sector. It is argued that using an intersectional analytical lens can be a fruitful way to challenge existing norms.
