Special issue on infrastructural harm from infra-demos in the journal Globalisations
In 2023 the journal Globalzations will publish the special issue on 'infrastructural harm: rethinking moral entanglements, spatio-temporal dynamics, and resistance(s)' edited by Yannis Kallinaos, Alexander Dunlap and Dimiris Dalakoglou, PI of infra-demos.
This introduction provides an initial approach to the conceptual framework of infrastructural harm. It draws upon existing scholarship to discuss infrastructures as relational arrangements co-formative of harm. By approaching infrastructures as sites of ongoing socio-political and environmental antagonism, we pay attention to the ways in which infrastructural harm is generated, accretes, and transmutes across different scales and contexts. We consider harm as a process that exceeds the (in)direct consequences of infrastructure operation to extend to other arrangements. Building upon the diverse case studies discussed in this special issue, we investigate how the political and necropolitical properties of infrastructures are entangled with different technologies, judicial forms, policies, regulations and everyday processes. By foregrounding these diverse manifestations of infrastructural harm, together with its material and immaterial expressions, we expand on the existing literature in order to further explore critical codifications of contemporary socio-technical arrangements.
