Envisioning-Scaling-Infrastructuring: The Port of Durban and its City (working title):

Project description:

From a (postcolonial and feminist) STS perspective, my project seeks to bring the Anthropology of Infrastructure into dialogue with the Anthropology of (modern) time. Within my theoretical framework envisioning-scaling-infrastructuring are constitutive for the coming into being of conflictual and contradictory temporalities. With my project, I hope to contribute to an understanding on how and for whom temporalities and classifications of temporalities work within and against the racial regimes of mobility.
