• The Underground Frontier

Pereira, Godofredo, 2015, Journal Article, The Underground Frontier Continent CC, 4 (4). pp. 4-10. ISSN 2159-9920

Abstract or Description:

Techno-scientific modes of seeing, classifying, and measuring the earth are reformulating the ways in which territorial disputes are currently played out. Due to the mobilisation of science by capital we today inhabit an earth that is being reduced to discrete components. The extreme case of this condition is what I will call the underground frontier: The underground is no longer simply the space where resources are located, but
has itself been converted into a resource. However, if one wishes to investigate the processes by which the underground has been converted into a resource and the role of technoscience in these processes, one should be prepared to investigate the spatial and political assemblages of
which technoscience is part: how it is mobilised, used, financed, and how it becomes part of wider political, cultural or legal claims.
