Scaffolding, Hard and Soft: Infrastructures as Critical and Generative Structures (2014)

On September 18, 2014, in Parsons’ “Design for This Century” lecture course — a class that’s required of all first-year Transdisciplinary Design, Design + Technology, and Design Studies students — I spoke about infrastructure as both a critical framework and a generative structure. This presentation, which you can find here, would later become a chapter in Jentery Sayers’s Routledge Companion to Media Studies and Digital Humanities, forthcoming 2017.
