Keynote Speaker: Keller Easterling (Yale)
“Massive global systems — meta-infrastructures administered by public and private cohorts, and driven by profound irrationalities — are generating de facto, undeclared forms of polity faster than any even quasi-official forms of governance can legislate them — a wilder mongrel than any storied Leviathan for which there is studied political response”
— Keller Easterling
“What then is Exceptional Space?
A migrant ship afloat outside Thailand?
Turned away, turned to where?”
