“An Asian Australian Occasion”
A Free One Day Film Festival and Panel Discussion
For February 2007 @ UQ Duhig
Library Conference Room

Organised by Brisbane students in association with
The Asian Australian Studies Research Network (AASRN) and
The University of Queensland Library


“An Asian Australian Occasion” will showcase a combination of panel  
discussions and short films that creatively construct and interrogate  
conceptualisations of Asian Australian culture and identities.  This  
special one-day event also aims to promote dialogues between both  
senior and emerging academics, artists and activists.

The program will feature a range of films that focus on questions of  
belonging and mobility in the everyday lives of Asian Australians;  
this includes Fish Sauce Breath, Delivery Day and Chinese Take Away.   
The panel discussions will be chaired by Dr Jacqueline Lo, of the ANU  
and the Asia Australian Studies Research Network.   Other panelists  
include Benjamin Law of QUT who is writing an 8 part Asian-Australian  
sit-com and Jen Tsen Kwok, whose research explores the political  
cultures and subcultures of diasporic Chinese communities in  
multicultural Australia. There will also be a screening of more  
experimental works including Sydney artist My Le Thi's  PHO NOW.  A  
booklet featuring the program, panelist bios, short articles plus a  
listing of links to notable Internet clips about Asian Australian  
identities is also being planned.

Volunteers for planning committee and on the day also needed.
