Pipelines were never meant to be involved in politics. Over the past decade, however, pipelines have entered the mainstream of political discussion and debate as never before. Dr. Imre Szeman (University of Waterloo) will discuss the issues in the ASCA Cities seminar.

Repairing Infrastructures

In the 2018-19 ASCA Cities seminar series we examine the city through the lens of infrastructures. This seminar will take stock of the many failures and crises of infrastructure, gathering thinkers and ideas committed to reparative infrastructures that both anticipate and help sustain sociality. Putting infrastructure at the heart of our social and cultural analysis, as Deborah Cowen (2017) argues, “insists that we ask how power works, in its most mundane and practical ways,” in turn helping to refine concepts of resistance and justice.
