Tim Oakes won a 2023-24 Fulbright Global Scholar award for his project “The hinterlands of global China: infrastructures of life beyond the urban”. This is a collaborative project with scholars in Oslo and in Singapore to develop a theoretical foundation and a new research agenda for interpreting critically China’s deepening impact on everyday lives in the developing regions of the Global South. More specifically, they will be exploring China’s digital infrastructures and the growth of ‘platform capitalism’ in the rapidly urbanizing regions of Southeast Asia.
