In this latest Asia Research Brief, Laam Hae (Politics) discusses her newly released co-edited volume, On the Margins of Urban South Korea: Core Location as Method and Praxis (University of Toronto Press, 2019).
This book is the outcome of long-term collaborations among scholars trained in different disciplines, such as geography, anthropology, urban planning and politics. Through rich and illuminating case studies, they interrogate how multiple layers of geopolitical and geo-economic powers in East Asia are embodied and contested in different core locations in South Korea.
