Theorising Mobilities in/from Asia

Call for Papers
Theorising Mobilities in/from Asia

November 14-15, 2013
Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore
Proposal deadline: June 14, 2013

While mobilities have long been a staple in Asian societies and a force of social transformation throughout history, a greater need/desire for mobility in recent years has impelled new ways of being on the move in Asia. Yet the mobilities literature has remained rooted in the Anglo-American context. This conference invites scholars to explore ways of retrieving lost knowledges of mobilities through a deliberate (re)turn to Asia. In particular, the region is taken as a collective of centers for re-understanding and re-theorizing mobilities in their plurality and, especially, how migration and transport have compelled new social outlooks and modes of organisation in Asian contexts. Conference convenors: Prof. Brenda YEOH, National University of Singapore and Weiqiang LIN, University of London.
