The status of the current world is expanding the scope of research from the movement of human beings to the movement of human beings, objects, and their interconnected relationships. The development of mobility technology enables human beings, society, culture, and nature to move across boundaries, and their mobilities will be strengthened in the future. In response to the development of mobility, the Academy of Mobility Humanities (AMH) intends to create innovative research platforms to deal with the development of mobility technology, the daily movement of things, and their connected issues.

The HK+ Mobility Humanities Institute (MHI), a sub institute of the Academy of Mobility Humanities (AMH), is the leading research institute for Humanities Korea Plus (HK+), supported by the National Research Foundation in 2018. We are conducting a seven-year-long research project entitled “Mobility Humanities based on the co-evolution of human being and technologies: worlding the human-mobility societies in the future”. The HK+ Mobility Humanities Education Center, another sub institute of the AMH, operates a variety of creative education programs to disseminate the achievements of mobility humanities research to civil society. Through this, we aim to help citizens cultivate knowledge of mobility and humanities in the era of high-mobility.

Based on these projects, the Academy of Mobility Humanities (AMH) attempts to help to cultivate a better society for humanities-based thinking. In doing so, we aim to become one of the main representative institutes of mobility research internationally, which also fosters new researchers. AMH continues to evolve as a center from where mobility-focused research engages practical as well as scholarly questions that are planetary in scope.
