Delocalization: The Highway Apparatus
Ittyerah, Amit Chandy
MetadataShow full item record
Delocalization examines a post “urban/city” condition of development along the highway corridor between Delhi and Chandigarh in India. It imagines the process of development as an emergence through the refrain of the local, or its network of interests the localities (understood as not just static but also mobile). These localities are a constellation of forms and desires negotiating among many shades of Subaltern, Ritual, Global-Western City and/or Rural forms and imaginations. Delocalization hypothesizes a decentralized form of evolution where the global is increasingly being accessed and influence by multiple localities through negotiated translations that undo previous center-periphery divides. A delocalizing locality is seen as the new unit engaged in the processes of globalization where evolution is understood as a resistive emergence in the self.
