Affective Infrastructures

 

Image result for public culture may 2017

My paper on affective infrastructure has just come out in the latest issue of Public Culture.

http://publicculture.dukejournals.org/content/29/2_82/363.abstract

The paper builds on the work on Roads that I was doing with Penny Harvey. It attempts to cut a course between the debates on ontology and political anthropology by exploring how to address the role of material engagements in the formation of political subjectivity. Ethnographically it looks at affective responses to the construction of the Iquitos-Nauta road in the North of Peru. Contact me if you want to read it.
