520 |a "Infrastructural Brutalism explores the necropolitics of infrastructure through the lens of artistic media: "drowned town" literature, road movies, energy landscape photography, and "death train" narratives. How does American "drowned town" literature, from Mud on the Stars to Sugaree Rising, contribute to the social erasure of Indigeneity? How does road movie scholarship ignore the materiality of the road in favor of modes of travel? How is agency depicted in the energy landscape photography of oil pipelines and coal-powered reactors? How do the novels and films about death trains, from the historical trains of African colonization and the Holocaust to fictional trains such as Snowpiercer and Train to Busan, connect infrastructure with necropower? While most examples are from North American literature, film, and photography, the book also discusses media from around the world in terms of the necropolitical valences of infrastructure.
