This in-person workshop, collaboratively organised by Torik Holmes (Sustainable Consumption Institute, UoM), Rebecca Windemer (UWE, Bristol), and Carla De Laurentis (Cardiff Metropolitan University), will bring together researchers to discuss current and longer-term climate and sustainability emergencies as socio-technical challenges connected with the ordering of digital, transport, electricity, gas, water, and waste infrastructures. The workshop will explicitly deal with questions concerning the dual role infrastructures play in helping to constitute and address various emergencies over time and across space. It will also provide a platform to discuss and explore the conceptual and practical challenges associated with studying infrastructures, sustainability, and climate emergencies in tandem, and themes including: materiality; spatiality and scale; temporality and timeframes; and other social, political, and economic dimensions of the topic at hand.
