5. Devising inhuman urbanity By focusing on the construction of so-called anti-tsunami parks, and the different socio-technical controversies linked to them, this case study explores the proliferation of new urban expertises concerned with exploring technonatural arrangements for softening the irruption of inhuman forces in the urban realm. Research activities 2014/2015 Last year, activities mostly focused on writing up scientific articles from the municipal governance experiments case study, as well as expanding the notion of urban cosmopolitics in a broader research program for urban studies. Beyond this, the possibility of compiling the main results into a monograph is being explored. Project Publications Farías, Ignacio & Flores, Patricio. Forthcoming. “A different state of exception.
