Special Issue Call for Paper: This special issue of ephemera aims to investigate contemporary practices of repair as an emergent focus of recent organizing at the intersection of politics, ecology and economy. We wish to explore notions of repair and maintenance as crucial components for redefining socio-political imaginaries, away from the neoliberal capitalist dogma of throw-away culture and planned obsolescence.
