Reading Group:

Heritage and Infrastructure

4 pm

This informal “reading” group will explore some key concerns of the “infrastructural turn” in anthropology and how they might inform and challenge understandings of heritage. We will draw upon short texts as well as recent documentary/experimental films to start our discussions. The emphasis will be on sharing ideas and creative approaches to theorizing heritage and infrastructure, rather than close textual analysis/film analysis.

For the program and readings/films, see the pdf attached.

Meetings: We will meet biweekly, on Mondays from 1600 – 1700. The first five meetings will be by Zoom; the final meeting will be in person. Dates and Zoom link are below.

Everyone is welcome to join for all or some of the meetings!
