Abstract

O surgimento de “novas” mobilidades coloca o homo/mulier mobilis como actor-chave das nossas cidades. Visitantes, turistas, estudantes universitários e migrantes transnacionais mudam e re-significam o(s) quotidiano(s) urbano(s) de múltiplas formas, moldando uma nova topografia social do consumo nesta era móvel digital. Nesse sentido, o turismo, forma por excelência de mobilidade temporária, tem visíveis impactos nos territórios, urbanos e globais. Este artigo visa contribuir, através de um olhar sociológico, para a compreensão das mudanças verificadas em contextos urbanos particulares, destacando o caso do centro de Lisboa através da abordagem das mobilidades nas suas diferentes escalas fenomenológicas (transnacional/urbana/microlocal) e dos seus múltiplos protagonistas, práticas e dinâmicas territoriais.

The emergence of “new” mobilities makes homo/mulier mobilis a key player in our cities. Visitors, tourists, university students and transnational migrants change and re-signify urban day-by-day in multiple ways, shaping a new social topography of consumption in this mobile digital age. In this sense, tourism as a form of temporary mobility has visible impacts on territories, urban and global. This article aims to contribute, through a sociological perspective, to the understanding of the changes observed in particular urban contexts, highlighting the case of Lisbon city centre through an approach of mobility, both in its different phenomenological scales (transnational/urban/micro-local) and its multiple players, practices and territorial dynamics.
