A new open access special issue on plastics in Asia has been published in The Copenhagen Journal of Asian Studies. In this special issue, the authors look at four ethnographically rich cases of plastics as they are incorporated into Asian societies. The areas they cover are geographically diverse. Some are rural, such as the northern herding communities in Mongolia and the Cham dancers of Sikkim. Others are in small urban areas, such as the Himalayan circumambulatory routes, or larger cities, such as Mongolia’s capital Ulaanbaatar or the megacities of Chengdu and Mumbai.
