Description: This seminar course asks why “infrastructure” – that which enables other things to happen – has recently become such an important concept in the human sciences. After reviewing recent and classic theoretical approaches we explore recent anthropological studies of infrastructures-in-action ranging from information and media infrastructures to environmental and biotic infrastructures to infrastructures of governance and power.
