The Politics of Infrastructure


Infrastructure—its presence and absence—is at the centre of many contemporary struggles. This course examines the politics of infrastructure through a range of methodological approaches and empirical sites. It considers how infrastructure is produced and governed through power-laden processes, and how infrastructure shapes the material relations of ecology, citizenship, territory, authority, sovereignty, subjectivity, and collective action.
