To achieve this, we want to confront ethnographic contributions focusing on urban contexts in Central Asia with case studies from adjoining regional settings, such as the Caucasus, Russia, China and South Asia. In doing so, we aim to trace the impacts of migration and global connectedness on these cities' recent historical trajectories and scalar positionings, as well as we want to investigate the city dwellers' distinct ways of adapting, integrating and creatively arranging their lives within these urban contexts.
