This panel examines the ways in which changing patterns, infrastructures, and representations of mobility within and beyond Asia affect the physical and conceptual spaces of the region. Focusing on the intersection of spatial theory and mobility studies, our aim is to consider the mutual impact of mobility and the transformation of space through examples of Asia and Asians. Space is, of course, a topic well covered in several fields, such as critical social theory, architecture, political science, and history, and mobility is an emerging subfield in anthropology, geography, and sociology. We invite proposals from these and other disciplines that examine how movements of people transform places and how economic, political, architectural, and cultural structures of space impact mobility. By bringing together scholars considering space and mobility in various historical and geographic circumstances, though multiple disciplinary approaches, we hope to achieve richer theorizations about space through the theme of global Asia, itself a space that must be defined, at least in part, through mobility.
