Pipes and Wires

My short chapter with Nino Kemoklidze, “Pipes and Wires“, is out in the volume Globalization in Practice, edited by Nigel Thrift, Adam Tickell, Steve Woolgar, and William H. Rupp. The first version of this article was written years ago, when the a major dispute between Russia and Ukraine over gas prices broke out. The volume was long delayed, and finally came to press just as the current events in Ukraine were unfolding. Nino and I managed to add a couple words about the present situation, but it is mostly the back story (or one among a number of back stories) to current events, which can be seen as an apotheosis of a long infrastructural tale.
