Communication Maintenance in Longue Durée


Laboratorio di storia delle Alpi

Data d'inizio: 25 Febbraio 2022

Data di fine: 26 Febbraio 2022

In the last decades, more and more scholars have claimed for inclusion of maintenance among the key topics and key questions of technology (Edgerton 2007, Jackson 2014, Russell and Vinsel 2018, Henke and Sims 2020). Communication and media studies have just partially included in their methodological and analytical tools reflections on maintenance (see Balbi and Leggero 2020; Weber and Krebs 2021) and this paper-based workshop aims to advance in this aspect adding another fundamental yet underestimated layer in communication and maintenance research: the Longue durée. The workshop will host methodological and empirical approaches ranging from history to anthropology, from geography to political studies, from economics to obviously communication and transportation studies.
