Future Asias: Asian Studies Association of Australia 2020 Conference CFP

6-9 July 2020, University of Melbourne 

Global recognition of the multiplicity of Asian communities, within Asia and in diverse Asian diasporas, including those in Australia, highlights the plurality of Asian identities. The dynamism of the Asian region is acknowledged across the disciplines. The organisers of ASAA 2020 ask that presenters explore this diversity and past or contemporary understandings of Asia, to reflect on where these plural Future Asias are headed. The conference will include a series of roundtable discussions on the following interdisciplinary themes. Shifting inequalities in Asia; Mobilities across Asias; Australia in Asia/Asia in Australia; Civil society in Asia; Australia-Asia relations; New spatio-political-economies of Asia; Transitional justice; Language diversities across Asia. Individual paper and Panel submissions related to these themes are particularly welcomed. Prior to the commencement of the main conference, the afternoon of Monday 6th July is set aside for pre-conference gatherings. If you would like to hold a pre-conference workshop, seminar or meeting please contact the conference organisers (email) to request an appropriate space for your event depending on your anticipated attendance.
