The Emerging Asian Urbanisms series at the York Centre for Asian Research (YCAR) explores the diverse processes and practices of urbanism and urbanization in Asia. It draws upon calls made by Ananya Roy and Jennifer Robinson, among others, to investigate “new geographies of theory” as fertile sources of uncovering new ways of understanding urbanism everywhere. In 2018-2018, we started a reading group, hosted guest speaker events and organized graduate writing workshops. For questions, please email Amardeep Kaur (Doctoral Candidate in Geography).
