This conference is open to the public. This event is a space for cross-disciplinary thinking about the multi-valent concepts of territory, law, and infrastructure in a world of multiple “crises,” with an eye toward design logics for alternative futures. The broader workshop panels take ports as a heuristic that is particularly amenable to comparative socio-legal inquiry inviting engagement with a range of pressing topics spanning logistics, infrastructure, labor, regional planning and design, ecological crisis, development, sovereignty, and governance, to name only a few. The workshop is co-organized by Prof. Lucie White of Harvard Law School, Prof. Diane Davis of the Harvard Graduate School of Design, Prof. Dan Danielsen of the Northeastern University School of Law, and Samuel Tabory of the Harvard Graduate School of Design. The workshop is supported by the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard. The event will take place over two days, and the second day will have multiple panels.
