We need to talk about infrastructure

CCA elsewhere, in English, online, 27 April, 11am (Montréal) / 5pm (Zürich)

CCA Associate Director, Research, Rafico Ruiz will be in conversation with ETH Zurich’s NEWROPE/The Design in Dialogue Lab as part of its “We need to talk about infrastructure” series. The event interrogates understandings of ‘adaptive infrastructure’ through conversations with scholars and practitioners. Ruiz will share recent infrastructural explorations from In the Postcolony, the CCA’s current three year thematic cycle for its Master’s Students Program, as well as insights from his own research on settler colonialism and infrastructure building in the Subarctic and Arctic.

The event is free and no registration is needed. To attend, please follow this link.
