Asia Rising Trope Tracker

The tropes of “Rising Asia,” or the “Rising Asian City,” are seemingly everywhere in the media, business, politics, and academic scholarship. They sometimes appear uncritically as a trope and sometimes as a critique of the trope itself. Here we will be keeping a running list of places where they appear.

This list begins as a disorganized collection of references to the trope of rising Asia. After a period of collection, we will begin to curate the list, and analyze it, looking for trends and themes.
