GRADUATE SUMMER SCHOOL - Asia Pacific Week 2009 (ANU)

Asia Pacific Week 2009
Date: 27 Jan 2009 to 30 Jan 2009

Applications are now open!

Asia-Pacific Week brings together hundreds of PhD candidates from Australia and overseas to workshop projects, to benefit from master classes and form networks committed to understanding the world's most dynamic region.

Since its inception in 2004, Asia-Pacific Week has become a signature event for postgraduates in Australia and for scholars of the region. In 2008, 200 doctoral candidates took part, along with three dozen senior scholars.

Asia Pacific Week is a container for a number of "Graduate Summer Schools" focusing on different areas of the Asia-Pacific region (the Pacific Islands, China, Japan, Indonesia, South Asia, Mainland Southeast Asia and East Timor).

During a week of activities, graduate students have a chance to present their research interests, meet other students and academics, participate in a wide range of training activities, be introduced to the rich holdings on Asia and the Pacific at the ANU Library and the National Library of Australia and participate in a stimulating program of events including cross-area workshops, keynote speeches, seminars and master classes, film screenings, cultural performances and social events.
