New: Urban Poetics & Politics in Asia, Part I

Autumn 3-4

Nine of ten of the world's largest megacities are located in Asia. Reason enough for the team of guest editors Patrick Heinrich, Francesca Tarocco and Daniele Brombal to look at urbanisation in Asia from different perspectives. The result is a wealth of exciting articles from a wide range of disciplines, from theoretical and methodological questions to ethnological case studies and literary contributions. Together they form a multi-layered picture of Asia's major cities. The special edition is published in two volumes under the title "Urban Poetics and Politics in Asia". The first volume has already been published online, the second will follow soon.
