CFP - AAI 2: The 2nd Asian Australian Identities Conference (28-30 June 2007; Melbourne, Vic)

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