This publication resulted from the workshop “Shifting Geopolitical Ecologies and New Spatial Imaginaries,” which convened at Inter-Asian Connections III: Hong Kong in 2012.
Three articles in this CAS feature collection – those by Candela, Harrar, and Fisher Onar – were first written for a workshop entitled “Shifting Geopolitical Ecologies and New Spatial Imaginaries,” during the third Inter-Asian
Connections conference, held in June 2012. The aim of the workshop was to identify and bring into discussion emerging mental, cultural, and political conceptions of spatial categories in Asia. Workshop organizers Çaglar Keyder and Ravi Arvind Palat provide an introductory chapter, and Palat provides background and context for the articles in his own article, “Maps of Time, Clocks of Space: Changing Imaginaries of Asia”.
