    Description

    Abstract:

    Although roads and other infrastructures are ubiquitous, until recently they have existed only on the margins of anthropological enquiry. This has changed in the past decade, as the anthropology of infrastructure has become a burgeoning debate within our discipline.

     

    In this seminar, we will focus on selected examples of infrastructures around the world and analyze how they are entangled in local politics and the social and cultural life. We will study how class differences manifest in the traffic on the Bosporus Bridge in Istanbul, how roads in rural Peru expand but also contest state power, how the Apartheid power relations persist in water-meters in South Africa, and we will also learn about the role that indigenous people play in drug infrastructures at the US-Mexico border. Further, we will use infrastructure as a critical lens to reflect on global travels of power, resources, workers, capital, and ideas.

     

    Workload and assessment: The course language is English and contents are based on literature in English (but your English does not have to be perfect to participate!). An occasional use of German is permitted. The seminar papers may be written in German or English. The mandatory literature comprises about 30 pages/week.
