Chou / Kim / Wilson Geo-Spatiality in Asian and Oceanic Literature and Culture

This collection opens the geospatiality of “Asia” into an environmental framework called "Oceania" and pushes this complex regional multiplicity towards modes of trans-local solidarity, planetary consciousness, multi-sited decentering, and world belonging. At the transdisciplinary core of this “worlding” process lies the multiple spatial and temporal dynamics of an environmental eco-poetics, articulated via thinking and creating both with and beyond the Pacific and Asia imaginary.
