The past decade has witnessed an exponential growth in literature on the diverse
forms, practices, and politics of mobility. Research on migration has
been at the forefront of this field. Themes in this respect include heterogeneous
practices that have developed out of traditions of resistance to a global historical
trajectory of imperialism and colonialism. In response to such historical
transformations of recent decades, the nature of postcolonial inquiry has
evolved. Such changing postcolonial trajectories and power negotiations are
more pronounced in specific parts of the world than in others. To that end,
“Postcolonial Intersections: Asia on the Move” is a special section that engages,
examines, and analyzes everyday power negotiations, focusing particularly
on Asia. Such everyday negotiations explicitly point to pressure points
and movements across multiple geosocial scales where gender, religion, age,
social class, and caste, to name a few, are constantly negotiated and redefined
via changing subjectivities.
