Call For Papers

ASEAS 6(2) - Mobilities

The upcoming issue 6(2) of the Austrian Journal of South-East Asian Studies (ASEAS) will feature a focus on Mobilities in South-East Asia, and aims at bringing together researchers from various academic fields in order to do justice to the interdisciplinary nature of this broad topic. The notion of Mobilities, in the broader sense, refers to movements (or non-movements) of persons, objects, information, or capital over time and space. Studies on Mobilities can bridge the fields of migration and tourism; two disciplines that frequently find themselves joined under the umbrella term Mobilities. Thereby, more specifically, an emphasis is put on the movement of people between, across, and within national boundaries. While a theoretical debate on these topics is necessary to contribute to the understanding of Mobilities in its different facets, methodological contributions prove beneficial for advancements in this fundamental area of research. If you intend to submit a paper, please contact the editorial board (, as this facilitates our planning process. Submissions dealing with one or several of the following issues are of special interest to the board of editors:

- Theoretical debates on mobilities and conceptual challenges resulting from empirical research, e.g. discussing agency-structure approaches
- Methodological contributions to the field: ‘mobile’ and dynamic methods to understand migration, tourism, and mobilities in the 21st century
- Intersections of tourism and migration, e.g. international retirement migration or migration into tourist spaces
- Subnational forms of mobilities such as rural-urban, urban-urban, or rural-rural migrations
- Forced migration, e.g. people having to leave their homes due to conflict, environmental degradation etc.
- Transnational lives of South-East Asian communities abroad
- Emotion and mobility, focusing on emotional issues such as love, sex, and aff ection in the context of migration decision making and migrant agency
- Upward and downward social mobilities, change of socioeconomic status through migration
- (Im)mobility, exclusion, and inequality: barriers to movement and broader aspects of society and mobility, e.g. the role of the ‘left-behind’ in migration processes
- Mobilities of tourism and travel: movement of tourists and its implications, attempts to understand the post-modern subject on the move, interactions in tourism
- Tourism for sustainable development: alternative forms of tourism, tourism and empowerment, sustainable mobilities
- Rethinking place and space in mobility studies: the meaning of place and space for the investigation of tourism, migration, and communities (e.g. community-based tourism, the importance of ‘community’ in tourism)
- As always, book reviews and suggestions for interviews are welcome (for further details, please contact the board of editors)
