Infrastructural and Urban Transformations. Theoretical and Methodological Approaches

Castello del Valentino, Torino

This cycle of seminars reflects and builds on both an ‘infrastructural moment’ — with massive symbolic and financial investment in, especially, energy, digital and transport infrastructures — and on an ‘infrastructural turn’ — with a growing and increasingly diverse use of the notion in various research areas.

PhD Program in Urban and Regional Development Seminar Series organised by:
Daniel Florentin (Ecole des Mines Paris PSL) and Leonardo Ramondetti (DIST, Politecnico di Torino)
