Asian Borderlands Research Network

Borderland Futures – Online

From 6-7 November 2020, junior scholars presented their latest research at the online conference Borderland Futures with a focus on three key themes – technologies, zones, co-existences. The presenters offered reflections on these key themes both theoretically and empirically with the aim to generate broader debate and intellectual engagement with borderland futures. 

This online Asian Borderlands conference precedes the postponed 7th conference of the Asian Borderlands Research Network - Borderland Futures: Technologies, Zones, Co-existences, to be taking place in June 2022 in Seoul, South Korea.
