[Keynote Lecture] Muted technoscapes? Unearthing smart city experiments, technologies and practices in/from the global South

March 24, 2022 @ 4:15 pm - 5:30 pm

Prince K. Guma is a researcher of cities, infrastructures and technologies in eastern Africa and currently a Research Fellow and Assistant Country Director at the British Institute in Eastern Africa. His recent work, at the intersection of STS, urban studies, and postcolonial studies, examines the contingent and place-based articulations of cities, and how these are mediated through the diffusion and uptake of new plans, technologies and infrastructures both small and big. His findings are hoped to provide a menu for new explorations and contribute insights to debates on technology and urbanity in the global South and beyond.
