Mobilities, Communication, and Asia| Mobilities in Asia — Introduction

Mohan Jyoti Dutta, Raka Shome


Asia is, and has been, a site of multiple mobilities—of media, peoples, and ideas. These various mobilities in and across Asia that this Special Section addresses are significantly imbricated in relations of communication and power. Yet they have not received adequate attention in media and communication studies or in the expansive scholarship on mobilities, which has largely remained focused on the North Atlantic West. This introduction makes a case for the importance of addressing relations of mobilities in Asia and understanding how relations of communication and power inform, and are informed by, such mobilities.
