About the Event
The Adam Smith Business School is delighted to host the first Alternative Futures webinar series with speaker Dr Alejandro De Coss-Corzo.
In this on-line webinar Alejandro will be giving a talk titled ‘Reimagining: Repair’ and discussing the role of maintenance and repair labour in sustaining both infrastructures and the material, social, political, economic, and environmental relations that they articulate. More specifically, the talk argues that in the interstices created by decaying infrastructures, emergent repair practices can prefigure logics of more just and sustainable socio-environmental futures.
Alejandro De Coss-Corzo is Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Bath, UK. His research has focused on the role that hydraulic infrastructures, and the work that sustains them, play in making and maintaining urban life in Mexico City. This event is open to all.
This session will take place via Zoom webinar. Details will be sent to registered attendees in due course.
