Asian Studies Association of Australia Conference 2018

3–5 July 2018

We are proud to host the 22nd biennial conference of the Asian Studies Association of Australia (ASAA).

Registration is now open.

Co-organised by the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre, the China Studies Centre and the School of Languages and Cultures, the 2018 biennial conference of the Asian Studies Association of Australia will bring together almost 1,000 academics with a shared interest in Asia.

The conference theme, Area Studies and Beyond, builds upon traditional interdisciplinary fields of research within Asian Studies and seeks to move beyond them, to celebrate the full breadth and depth of scholarly interest in Asia.
