Dynamics of Foreign-Control

Tuesday, 17 July 2018: 08:30-10:20
WG01 Sociology of Local-Global Relations (host committee)

Language: English

Places of foreign-control like overseas military bases, special economic zones, all-inclusive tourist resorts, embassies, cruise ships and international branch campuses - what Reyes (2015) recently termed "global borderlands" - are the locus of many foreign-local interactions. In an effort to bridge conversations about the dynamics of foreign-control, and how they compare across time, space, and context, this session invites papers that put these dynamics as their central concern. Papers that historize the dynamics of foreign-control and put it in comparative perspective are welcome, as well as those that focus on contemporary relations through in-depth case studies.
