Images of cities in Asia between past and present 


Urbanization and migration, narratives and myths, human, social and political conflicts, economic development and inclusiveness, smart cities and innovation, cultural heritage and new visions, rights, global dimension and circulation of ideas, environment and sustainability, openness and closure, languages and new identities, stratification and hybridization - the real and symbolic dimension of the city allows us to explore the complex transformations of Asia between past and present. The Institute of Asian Studies of the University of Turin organizes research activitiesa and workshops to analyze the major issues related to cities in Asia, in a multidisciplinary and comparative perspective.
