CI Studies Bibliography

The Critical Infrastructure Studies Bibliography includes sources representing many branches and approaches of the emerging field of critical studies of infrastructure. It is an instrument to help gauge the scope, and define the shape, of the field. Included resources bear in some way on the thought, theory, philosophy, methods, politics, policy, strategy, principles, critique, art, ethics, and other contexts of infrastructure studies. Some works are paradigmatic of approaches; others synthetic, critical, theoretical, or literary and artiistic. The Bibliography is edited by: Alan Liu (general ed.) and Urszula Pawlicka-Deger (ed. for Digital Humanities) [editors for other categories TBD].  For the principles of the structure and scope of the bibliography, see “Critical Infrastructure Bibliography Taxonomy.” This bibliography is being developed in a Zotero group library fed into the CIstudies.org site through the Zotpress plug-in.)
