How can humanities scholars think infrastructurally? How would that effect the way we conduct and disseminate our research? Can we build research infrastructures without subscribing to the insidious master narratives of efficiency and progress? This talk will also touch upon the value of infrastructural thinking for the Slavic Studies field, citing examples from the Raskovnik Serbian dictionary platform and the Prepis.org transcription project.
