Description

Home to more city dwellers than any other continent, and the locus of many of the world's most populous metropolitan areas, Asia is moving to center stage in popular and academic debates about global urban futures. This volume comprises essays examining the intersections of the urban and futurity. While attentive to emergent forms of urban Asia, contributors also examine futures past, the afterlives of historical projects and archaeologies of the future. Many essays provide ethnographic and field-based empirical insights into emerging urban cultures, while others explore the theoretical and political implications of the urban future in Asia. Essayists include Asher Ghertner (Rutgers University), Christina Schwenkel (University of California, Riverside) and Andre Sorensen (University of Toronto).
