__AAI 2 - The 2nd Asian Australian Identities conference__

28-30 June 2007 (Monash University - 30 Collins Street, Melbourne)

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 (max 200 words) should be sent to
tseen.khoo at arts.monash.edu.au BY THURSDAY 30 November 2006.

Conference events will include a cabaret and contemporary art exhibition.
