CfP: Seasons of Revolutions: Transnational Lives of Nationalist Revolts
September 30, 2021
The Asia Research Institute of the National University of Singapore is calling for papers for their conference on Seasons of Revolutions.

Later in the mid-20th-century, as one independence movement succeeded, others grew in strength, together overthrowing the colonial yoke from across the Global South. Just as in the Arab Spring, these national revolts hopscotched across the region on the back of mobile populations, be they merchants, scholars, pilgrims, soldiers, exiles, laborers, refugees, and diasporas.
