Co-organised by the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre, the China Studies Centre and the School of Languages and Cultures at the University of Sydney, the 2018 biennial conference of the Asian Studies Association of Australia will bring together almost 1,000 academics with a shared interest in Asia. The conference theme ‘Area Studies and Beyond’ builds upon traditional interdisciplinary fields of research within Asian Studies and seeks to move beyond them, to celebrate the full breadth and depth of scholarly interest in Asia.
Incorporating core thematic streams on development, public health, gender, anthropology and more, this event will highlight the latest research and evidence emerging in academia focused on the Asian region. A draft program is now available from the conference website.
More details can be found on the conference website and registration is now open – early-bird discounts will close on 31 January 2018.
