The annual Asianet conference 2022 is hosted by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), in collaboration with the Norwegian Network for Asian Studies.
Asian lives, stories and perspectives have global implications. This year’s Asianet Conference takes a bottom-up perspective, situating the local Asian daily life in the wider global context.
The conference solicits perspectives that are sensitised to the local and contextual, but at the same time considers what this means in a new globalised context. The aim is to get a view at what is happening on the ground in Asia; to understand the role of local knowledges and understandings in Asian worldviews, and how these interact and interrelate with global knowledge circulations, value chains and trade networks. This conference highlights fragmentation and coming together in ongoing negotiations, relations, combinations, and enmeshments that constantly destabilise, reproduce, and reshape worlds. Fragmentation is a productive perspective that allows us to discuss how new things come together: some relations are silenced, or backgrounded, some are foregrounded.
