Regional Infrastructures, Infrastructural Regionalism

Virtual Special Issue

An ‘infrastructure turn’ across the social and policy sciences is generating a new wave of interdisciplinary inquiry into how infrastructure is shaping urban and regional space. This collection charts the evolution of infrastructure as an empirical and conceptual concern within Regional Studies. The virtual special issue and accompanying editorial demonstrate that analyzing regions through infrastructure - whether large, capital-intensive projects or more mundane infrastructures - provides a novel and necessary perspective on the regional question.
