Adversarial Infrastructure: The Crimean Bridge

As much as prisons, housing and deportation centres, ports, roads and bridges have, logically, become sites for strikes and direct action. Using her recently launched project Crimean Bridge, as a starting point, Anna Engelhardt takes stock of the critical literature in logistics and infrastructure studies to highlight Russia's settler-colonialist project and asks how we might expand our thinking on 'agency' and militant effectivity to include long-term ecological processes and the power of non-human actors.
