New YCAR Asia Research Brief: The Social Life of Flooding in Jakarta

YCAR director Abidin Kusno’s (Environmental Studies) research on flooding in Jakarta, Indonesia is the focus of our latest Asia Research Brief. Kusno’s SSHRC-funded research builds on the insights of current scholarship from critical geography and anthropology of infrastructure to make sense of a social formation (such as Jakarta) in which flooding has led to both disaster and opportunities as well as modes of governing society.
