T2M’s mission is the establishment of a collegial association of scholars, practitioners and concerned citizens to encourage and promote an understanding of the historical interaction between transport, traffic and the mobility of people, material objects and ideas. The association invites participation by anyone sharing an interest in its activities. Membership of T2M ensures a vital connection with like-minded individuals and institutions around the world.
The association provides an international forum through its annual yearbook, Mobility in History (“MIH“), and the biannual Journal of Transport History (“JTH,” published by SAGE), as well as discounted subscription to the journals Transfers and Mobilities. We connect international researchers, institutions, and museums through our quarterly newsletter, listserv, and annual meetings in Europe, North America and elsewhere.
