> CALL FOR PAPERS
>
> ECONOMIC GEOGRAPHIES OF ASIA
>
> A Special Session at the 98th Annual Meeting of the Association of
> American Geographers, Los Angeles, 19 - 23 March 2002
> (Sponsored by Economic Geography, China Specialty Group, Asia Speciality
> Group, Economic Geography Specialty Group, and Socialist Specialty Group)
>
> Theme: Economic Geographies of Asia
> Organizers:
> Henry Wai-chung Yeung, Department of Geography, National University of
> Singapore
> Fulong Wu, Department of Geography, University of Southampton, UK
> George Lin, Department of Geography, University of Hong Kong
>
> The economic geographies of Asia are highly fascinating, not least because
> Asia's immense population, great cultural diversity, and rapid pace of
> changes have no parallel among other continents.  Asia has increasingly
> emerged as a significant economic player in all three spheres of global
> competition: production, consumption and circulation. This dynamic mosaic
> of economic landscapes in Asia is further complicated during and after the
> recent 1997/1998 economic crisis. While some aspects of these economic
> geographies of Asia have received research attention, the complex
> geographical processes of these economic landscapes in Asia have been
> under-theorized in the literature. On the one hand, the theorization of
> dynamic changes in Asia may entail the adaptation of economic-geographical
> theories developed elsewhere in the Anglo-American context. On the other
> hand, certain geographical processes in Asia may require fundamentally new
> approach to theorization that potentially can contribute to theory
> development in economic geography. While it has been understood that
> existing discourses of economic geography established in the West may not
> offer sensible and adequate explanations for what has been taking place in
> Asia without necessary modifications, it remains a pressing task for
> geographers interested in the region to move beyond the traditional
> empirical arena of "area studies" and develop contextually sensitive
> theoretical alternatives. Because of its sheer pace of change, empirical
> studies on Asia's changing economic geographies present challenging and
> promising research opportunities. The economic dynamism of Asia therefore
> provides a very useful site for theory development and empirical
> understanding in contemporary economic geography.
>
> The purpose of this special session is to bring together experienced
> geographers interested in Asia to examine how capital, labor, and land
> under different institutional contexts have (re)shaped Asia's economic
> geographies and in what manner changes in production, consumption, and
> circulation have reconfigured the economic landscapes in the region. We
> are particularly interested in theoretically-informed empirical papers
> that address some of, but not limited to, the following dimensions of
> changing economic geographies in Asia:
>
> *     International and cross-border production, trade and investment.
> *     Location of firms, corporate strategy and firm networks.
> *     Financial integration and development of financial centers.
> *     Geographies of producer services, control functions, and knowledge
> economies
> *     Circulation and consumption of goods and services.
> *     Geographies of innovation: national and localized learning;
> industrial districts and regional innovation systems.
> *     Competition for hi-tech talents, the segmentated labor markets, and
> transnationalism.
> *     Land economics, land system, land market, and land development.
> *     Infrastructure and economic development
> *     Economic restructuring of Japan, the NICs, and transitional
> socialist economies.
> *     Political economy of local and regional development and their social
> and institutional limits
> *     Asian economies and the Pacific Asian region in the tri-polar global
> system
>
> Please take note that selected papers will be invited for submission to a
> special issue of Economic Geography on the same theme which will be
> published in 2003.
>
> You may visit the AAG website <http://www.aag.org> to find out more about
> the annual meeting. We need a) title and short abstract (no more than 250
> words and with 3 keywords) in the AAG conference format; and b) a filled
> AAG conference registration form with registration fee (i.e. Credit Card
> #) by 31 July 2001. Please email them to George Lin <[log in to unmask]>.
