Abstract

Infrastructure has been an object of political action in its form as public good. Kai Bosworth's article, ‘What is “affective infrastructure,”’ views political action as a result of infrastructure, that is, the kind of social infrastructure that fosters the critical affect that activism depends on. Beginning with an outline of the material-political concept of infrastructure, this essay engages Bosworth's theoretical formulation of affective infrastructure as a rubric for understanding the enduring progressive question of what enables and sustains progressive activism.
