2019 IMES Annual Conference: Infrastructure, New Materialism, & The Agency of Objects
Our social world has a material basis. Objects and things serve as the connections and containers of life, both enabling and limiting movement, resource distribution and development. Scholars inspired by the material turn across the social sciences and humanities examine how power is located within and acts through infrastructures--transport, energy, buildings, and ecological structures, and how it often intersects with processes of violence and expropriation. This conference presents historic and contemporary academic work centered around the material dimensions of politics and power struggles in the Middle East and North Africa.
