Fabric of life. The infrastructure of settler colonialism in Palestine

Taking stock from literature on urban studies, settler colonialism and political economy, the dissertation looks at the histories and geographies of infrastructure networks (electricity and roads) to explore spatial modalities of settler colonialism and uneven development in Palestine. In particular it studies how infrastructures are co-produced and governed and how they advance political and socioe-conomic segregation and inequality in practice.
