Abstract in another language

Infrastructure is conventionally defined as the background “scaffolding” that makes social and economic activity—even life itself—possible. Recent anthropological studies have foregrounded the social work that infrastructural networks do by constituting and reconfiguring everyday forms of sociality and lived experience. These insights generate new opportunities to “think infrastructurally” (Chu 2014) about religion: how do religious actors navigate and assemble different infrastructural arrangements, and what kinds of social and spiritual worlds do these sustain? Taking up these questions, this workshop uses religious infrastructure as an experimental site for researching social entanglements.
