AsiaScapes: Contesting Borders

8-10 July 2014

The Asian Studies Association of Australia (ASAA) is pleased to announce that its 20th Biennial Conference will be held on 8-10 July 2014 at The University of Western Australia, Perth.

The pace of globalisation has made contestation of national borders a key part of both lived realities and academic analysis. Global problems increasingly demand international engagement and cross-disciplinary approaches. As an integrating theme of the 20th Biennial ASAA Conference we focus on both senses of border-crossing – national and disciplinary – in the multipolar world.
