Panel 4: The Vernacular of Everyday Infrastructures

In this panel, we hope to reveal the profound influence of everyday infrastructures - from public transportation and local markets to digital networks and informal housing - on the societies and relationships within and between Asian and African nations. Our panel of experts will show how these infrastructures, often constructed and consumed in local languages and practices, create a vibrant vernacular that underpins social dynamics, economic activities, and cultural exchanges.
