People as Infrastructure in one sentence

AbdouMaliq Simone, in this volume, uses the term infrastructure to refer to people in  the city, to the « ability of residents to engage complex combinations of objects, spaces, people, and practices » to form « conjunctions », which « become an infrastructure – a platform providing for and reproducing life in the city ».


I explore the imaginary infrastructures that surface in fiction, producing writerly, metropolitan maps. The fictional infrastructures I have chosen are street, the café, the suburb, and the campus.
