An anthropology of the crisis in existing infrastructural models and the emergence of new participatory ones in Greece
Infra-demos is an anthropological project studying the crisis in the existing infrastructural models and the emergence of new participatory ones in Greece.
Infra-demos studies the relationships between infrastructures and innovative socio-technological forms of participation arising within the infrastructural gap. Infra-demos investigates the social dynamics and assesses the capacities – and theoretical potentials – of such activities towards building societal resilience and transformative policies. Focusing empirically on Greece, it aims to extend the theoretical findings beyond the case.
Infra-demos is a 5 years project having begun in September 2017, led by Prof. D. Dalakoglou. It is funded through a VIDI Innovative Research Talent grant of the Dutch Organisation of Scientific Research (NWO) and it is hosted by the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology at Vrije University Amsterdam.
I am helping the project to develop its quantitative datasets and digital tools for utilisation and co-advise C. Giovanopoulos with his PhD.
