This day-long workshop will explore how literary, visual and other narrative forms mediate and intervene into current debates on cities, urban spaces and sustainable infrastructure developments.

In particular, it will ask: how are the forms represented in literary and visual texts connected to the often violent infrastructural layouts of urban space, especially (though by no means only) in the Global South? Can we trace the shape of the built environment, its underlying circuitries and systems, in the forms of such texts? And can literary and cultural texts allow practitioners of urban design – from architects and policy makers to engineers and urban planners – to reflect critically on their methods?
