Dag, here’s a partial list. I’ll be curious to hear what others might add.

Bowker & Star, Sorting Things Out: Classification and Its Consequences

Simon & Marvin, Splintering Urbanism — kind of a giant lit review, mostly focused on urban physical infrastructure but with some attention to digital

Edwards, A Vast Machine: Computer Models, Climate Data, and the Politics of Global Warming <http://pne.people.si.umich.edu/vastmachine/index.html>

Edwards et al., Understanding Infrastructure: Dynamics, Tensions, and Design <http://pne.people.si.umich.edu/PDF/ui.pdf> (NSF report with some lit review)

Starosielski, The Undersea Network

Check the books in my Infrastructures book series <https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/series/infrastructures>, co-edited with Geof Bowker - e.g. Larry Busch, Standards: Recipes for Reality

Also this very recent paper <https://www.academia.edu/27555302/Infrastructure_studies_meet_platform_studies_in_the_age_of_Google_and_Facebook> on platforms vs. infrastructures - not sure it counts as “canonical”!
