About the Talk

Infrastructuring denotes the transformative agency of complex infrastructural formations that shape urban form, everyday life and longer-term development trajectories of cities. Such infrastructural formations comprise humans and their agency, various kinds of resources, material objects and ecological systems of different scale.

They act to visibly or invisibly to structure the city and instil various forms of violence against marginalised groups today and most humans in the future. They work transversally to produce and reproduce social and environmental injustices in the short and long term. The paper draws on research China, India, Brazil.
