The Logistic Space of Capitalism
July 18 + 21, 6-8pm ET
Verónica Uribe Del Águila
The workshop introduces Deborah Cowen’s concept of logistic space and connects it to the production of global capitalism at the US-Mexico Border. According to Cowen, logistics manages the circulation of stuff by setting capital in motion to produce a supply chain: a network space of infrastructures, information, goods, and people dedicated to flows. Building in critical geography and feminist science and technology studies, the workshop aims to establish connections between global supply chains, the production of value, and the uneven development of regions across borders such as Mexico’s special economic zone at the US-Mexico border.
