23rd biennial conference of the Asian Studies Association of Australia (ASAA)
We are pleased to announce the 23rd biennial conference of the Asian Studies Association of Australia (ASAA) will be held at the University of Melbourne from 6th to the 9th July 2020. The University of Melbourne hosted the inaugural ASAA in 1976 and last hosted the conference in 2000.
The theme for the conference is Future Asias.
The biennial Asian Studies Association of Australia (ASAA) Conference is the largest gathering of experts working on Asia in the southern hemisphere. The conference has been a regular feature of Australian scholarly life since 1976. The National Library of Australia has kept a record of these conferences since 2004, using its web archive service, Pandora. A full list of ASAA conferences, and any websites that still exist, is also available on the ASAA website.
The conference will give us the opportunity to explore and discuss the many factors that contribute to the overall Asian Studies success. There will be an exciting program of speakers, panels, social activities and lots of networking opportunities. Delegates will be able to share successful strategies, engage with key stakeholders and develop important partnerships.
We invite you to please mark the conference dates in your diary and consider submitting an abstract or organising a panel. A call for papers will be released in June 2019.
The conference organising committee also welcomes any ideas you have for additional conference events. We really hope that you will help make the conference a success.
Conference Convenor A/Professor Katharine McGregor.
