About the Author

Michael Truscello is Associate Professor in the Departments of English and General Education at Mount Royal University, Calgary.


"From the sea of books that are published each year, every once in a while something truly brilliant washes ashore and radically changes the way we think about the world. Infrastructural Brutalism is one of those books. Truscello has produced a visionary critique of infrastructure, positioning it not as mere connection or capillary, but as a noxious reflection of the cruelty of capitalism and the dissonance, despair, and death that it delivers."
- Simon Springer, Professor of Human Geography, Univeresity of Newcastle, Australia; author of The Anarchist Roots of Geography and Violent Neoliberalism

"Capital wills itself to become infrastructure. Yet industrial capitalism now strangles life to the extent that we become weedy survivors in the cracks of its cementscape. Truscello's fascinating study probes the death drive of contemporary capital though its necroaesthetics while summoning a politics that could rupture this suicidal trajectory."
- Dominic Boyer, Professor, Rice University; author of Energopolitics: Wind and Power in the Anthropocene

Infrastructural Brutalism
is a provocative and radical contribution to contemporary infrastructure studies. Truscello's work here is erudite, inventive, and politically charged. My scholar's brain is buzzing, and my activist's heart is pumping."
- Darin Barney, Grierson Chair in Communication Studies, McGill University; author of The Network Society
