Regions Cities Industry Webinar Series - Policy Expo: Social Infrastructure and Local Development

31 May 2023 to 31 May 2023

In this webinar we explore the making, unmaking and remaking of social infrastructure (SI) in ‘left behind places’ (LBPs) through a case study a former mining village in northern England. We address the understudied affective dimensions of ‘left-behindness’. Seeking to move beyond a narrowly economistic of reading LBPs, our framework emphasises the importance of place attachments and the consequences of their disruption; considers LBPs as ‘moral communities’, seeing the making of SI as an expression of this, views the unmaking of SI through the lens of ‘root shock’ and explains efforts at remaking SI in terms of the articulation of ‘radical hope’.
