In this zoom research symposium, we will explore new and innovative ways of writing mobilities in transnational Asia and discuss advances and new trends in research on migration and globalization. A group of Rice students will present their ongoing writing projects on a range of topics in Asia-Pacific migration and to interact with three transnational Asian Studies scholars who will provide expert comments on the presentations.
