"Locating Asian-Australian Cultures"
Monash University - Clayton, Melbourne, Vic
28 June 2005

** This event is sponsored by the National Centre for Australian
Studies, Monash University **

This symposium focuses on current research in Asian-Australian cultures
and cultural production. It is particularly interested in the ways in
which 'Asian-Australian' has developed as a concept and/or field since
the publication of _Alter/Asians_ and _Diaspora: Negotiating
Asian-Australia_ (both published in 2000). What forms of
Asian-Australian cultural production have emerged and how are they
positioned? How have communities of Asian descent in Australia
negotiated cultural, public and political spaces? 

Papers addressing East and South Asian-Australian contexts are welcome. 

Symposium themes:
* Asian-Australian cultural production (including literature, film,
performance, and the visual arts)
* Negotiating Asian-Australian identities
* The politics of Asian-Australian representation

The symposium's priorities are to: 
* Create momentum for Asian-Australian cultural research.
* Provide a collegial and informal networking opportunity.
* Produce a publication that investigates key issues in
'Asian-Australian studies'

ABSTRACTS (max 200 wds) should be submitted to the convenor BY 14
February 2005. Please also include a paper title, short presenter's
biog, and full contact details.
