The volume scrutinizes publics and infrastructures not separately but in their constitutive interrelations, which allow publics and infrastructures to come into being in the first place. The contributions share a praxeological approach, discussing historical and current processes of cooperative media practices as infrastructuring and making public(s). The authors come from a range of disciplines including Anthropology, History, Informatics, Media and Communication Studies, and Social Sciences. Dealing with practices of experimenting and categorising as well as issues of transparency and a reflexive take on academia, the chapters trace different forms of the production and design of various publics and infrastructures. In doing so classic concepts and theories of media, infrastructures, and publics are revisited and reformulated. 

Revisiting Classic Theories of Media, Infrastructures and Publics.- Experimenting with Infrastructures and Publics.- (Dis-)Trusting Media/Infrastructures and Transparency Issues
