In the introduction to their book Signal Traffic: Critical Studies of Media Infrastructure, Lisa Parks and Nicole Starosielski have described "critical infrastructure studies" as a way to consider and historicize "infrastructures as large technical systems, urbanization campaigns, and sites of material culture...from bridges to power grids, from railways to sewer systems." When dreams of development, of globalization, of prosperity, or of imperial power take physical shape, they often take the form of large-scale construction projects.
