Call for panelists ECAS 2019 (Edinburgh): 'Paving roads over well-trodden paths? The (dis-)use of everyday infrastructure from pre- to post-colonial Africa, 1800s to present'

We're putting out a call for panelists for our panel at the ECAS Conference in Edinburgh, June 11-14, 2019. The panel is organised by Andreas Greiner (ETH Zurich) and Robert Heinze (Univ. of Berne/SOAS).

This panel draws attention to the establishment of dynamic infrastructure systems through everyday usage. It is interested in the logics, actors, and practices that shaped infrastructure during transition periods, and in the ways (post-)colonial states engaged with existing infrastructure.
