>AAI 2: The 2nd Asian Australian Identities conference (28-30 June 2007; Melbourne, Australia)

>The field of Asian Australian Studies has gained significant momentum since the inaugural 1999 conference in Canberra. In light of Australia’s changed political environment, what are the key challenges facing Asian Australian Studies today?

We welcome papers and presentations exploring Asian Australian identities, histories, cultures and politics.

Areas of interest include:

  • Community, cultural heritage and cultural identity
  • Literature, performance and film
  • Visual arts and new media
  • Popular culture

All presentations should be of 20 minutes duration.

Abstracts (200 words max) and a short bio (200 words max) should be sent to aasrn-events@asianaustralianstudies.org BY THURSDAY 30 November 2006.

A postgraduate workshop at ANU House (52 Collins Street) will precede the conference. Postgraduates will have the opportunity to present works-in-progress for focused discussion with key Asian Australian Studies scholars.

Workshop numbers are limited.

Applications describing the area of research and methodology (max 200 words) and a short bio (max 200 words) should be sent to aasrn-events@asianaustralianstudies.org BY WEDNESDAY 31 January 2007.
