Event description

Description

In urban policy and scholarly arenas, there has been an ‘infrastructural turn’. This is evidenced by a growing global emphasis on financing, building and maintenance of the physical systems that enable flows of people and things in cities, and research about their political economy, social constitution and uneven outcomes. In this workshop we will explore ‘common infrastructure’. By this, we mean three things: first, the growing recognition of the interdependencies of physical and social forms of infrastructures; second, the blurring boundaries between state and market in producing and governing infrastructures, and; third, the relations between private and collective costs and benefits. This workshop will interrogate these intersections in order to produce insights into new hybrids, physical-social practices, and collective goods and services that seek a more progressive politics of urban infrastructure.
