10th INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF MOTORCYCLE STUDIES CONFERENCE
University of Colorado Colorado Springs Downtown
102 S. Tejon St. Colorado Springs, CO
20–23 July, 2023
The first International Journal of Motorcycle Studies (IJMS) conference was held at UCCS and it is with great excitement and a sense of community that we return to the site for the 5th time to celebrate the 10th conference and the 15-year+ history of the journal after a long two years of shut downs, sheltering in place, and COVID-19 restrictions.
IJMS is dedicated to the study and discussion of motorcycling culture in all its forms – from the experience of riding and racing to the history of the machine, the riders and design to the images of motorcycling and motorcyclists in film, advertising and literature. We welcome submissions on all areas related to the cultural phenomenon of motorcycling. We invite contributions from all members of the motorcycling community.
About the Conference:
IJMS has been organizing an annual conference for a decade with the last two years suspended due to Covid 19. Originally, the founding editors of the journal spear-headed panels on motorcycle culture as part of the PCA/ACA annual conference. As the discourse of motorcycle studies expanded, it was clear that a conference dedicated solely to motorcycle studies was in order. In 2010 the inaugural IJMS conference at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs brought together journal contributors, IJMS staff, academics and members of the local motorcycle community. Subsequent conferences have been held in Birmingham, Alabama, Rancho Cucamonga, California, London, England, and Forest Grove, Oregon. This year’s conference will be held where it all began, at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs.
