CALL FOR PAPERS

 

Panel: Renovated Infrastructures, Renovated Citizenship

under axis 35: urban anthropology of the 18th IUAES World Congress

 

We are glad to inform that the panel “Renovated infrastructures, renovated citizenship” proposed by the convenors Prof. Daming Zhou and Prof. Andrew Kipnis has been accepted by the IUAES congress. The 18th World Congress of the IUAES will be held in Florianópolis, Brazil, on 16-20 July 2018.

 

In the past two decades, both cities and rural areas around the world gained new forms of mobility and complexity in shaping human encounters. One perspective in anthropology is to see cities and developing rural areas as sites for the confluence of infrastructures and cultures. Infrastructures here include not only roads, railways, water pipes, or electric grids, but also media, Internet, and languages that allow for the trafficking of people, goods, ideas, beliefs, and lifestyles. To think of infrastructures relationally requires us to look at the ways in which old and new infrastructures are woven into the everyday workings of a locale, and how they inform the distribution of resources, generate political contestation, and articulate the locality with globalizing forces. Then, what kinds of forces are behind the establishment of these old and new infrastructures? How do infrastructures become landscapes, and how do certain aesthetics mediate this process? How do local, translocal and transnational people perceive, use, react or navigate such revamped ways of connectivity? What kinds of politics, imaginaries, memories and belongings are emerging? How will connections among people generate new forms of citizenship, albeit truncated ones? This panel welcomes papers addressing emerging aspects of urban and rural lives across different sites in the global south, and aims to develop understanding of the relations between infrastructure building, mobility, and citizenship.

 

Papers are invited to join this open panel. The panel committee will accept paper proposals until 15 February 2018 and notify acceptance of proposals on 10 March 2018. In line with the congress schedule, the paper submission period to be published on the annals will be from 15 May to 1 September 2018.
