This session brings papers addressing the socio-spatialities of East Asian developmental urbanization in the post-territorial senses. The developmental urbanization in East Asia, which has been promoted in relation to the state-led national industrialization processes under the context of the cold-war geopolitics and post-colonial nation-building processes, can be characterized by the socio-spatial compression in urban development, the speculative urbanization, the creation of spaces of exceptions, and so on. Post-territorial readings of the East Asian developmental urbanization requires understanding the urbanization processes in relation to complex interactions and power relations among various social forces operating at and across multiple places and scales. The papers in this session pay attention to such issues as urban ideology, speculative urbanization, gentrification, spaces of exception, border cities, socio-spatiality of social movement, and so on.
