Activity: External Academic Engagement › Professional association or peak discipline body
Active since 1999, the Asian Australian Studies Research Network (AASRN) was formally established in 2006. It is a network for academics, community researchers, and cultural workers who are interested in the area of Asian Australian Studies.
Asian Australian Studies is a growing field that investigates the cultures, politics and histories of those of Asian descent in Australia. Much of its work engages with the fields of diasporic Asian , transnational, and diversity studies.
The activities initiated by this network facilitate extensive intra-national collaboration, and the AASRN presents a peak network for Asian Australian Studies internationally.
