The politics of infrastructure and emancipatory political Infrastructures

The first workshop of the Seminar Series “Re-thinking the spatial politics of global urbanization processes: the contested relationalities of port cities past and present”, is titled “Re-thinking the spatial politics of global urbanization processes: the contested relationalities of port cities past and present” and will take place in Thessaloniki, Greece on 26 & 27 May 2022. The workshop will foreground the spatial politics of infrastructure as a key terrain through which global urbanization processes are being shaped and contested by multiple actors at multiple scales. The event will situate port-cities as key nodes in infrastructure politics that enable global flows and animate the forces of capital and ‘empire’ and explore how the exclusionary ordering of the urban is contested through multi-ethnic encounters, solidarities and political infrastructures.

"The Fellowship offered me an invaluable and rare opportunity to conduct academic research in a leading institution during three years, which nowadays is nothing short of a luxury. I cannot emphasise enough how important this is for an early career scholar."
