Jonathan Silver participated in the ‘Authors Meet Critics’ series run by the International Journal of Urban and Regional Research (IJURR) and the Studies in Urban and Social Change book series published by Wiley-Blackwell. Joining 20 worldwide participants through an online platform Jonathan answered questions and engaged in debate about his IJURR paper – Disrupted infrastructures: An urban political ecology of interrupted electricity in Accra – reflecting on recent debates concerning energy geographies, infrastructure, rapid urbanisation and climate change dynamics across this West African city. The series aims at establishing a closer link between readership and authors through supporting scholarly debate at an international level with new technologies. In particular, it wants to provide younger scholars with an opportunity to engage in a debate with IJURR and SUSC authors. It is run by Professor Rivke Jaffe, IJURR Web Editor and based at the University of Amsterdam.
