From the Director’s Desk
We are having many stimulating events in November. MAI will organize an international workshop, Multiculturalism and Asia (21-22 Nov). Many prominent academics and young researchers will get together to discuss multicultural questions in the Asian contexts. There are also special lectures by two internationally renowned professors. On 29 Nov, Prof. Bruce Jacobs will give a talk on the relationship of Taiwan and China. The lecture is organized by the School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics as a special event for Prof. Jacob’s official retirement from Monash University and reception will follow the lecture in praise of his great academic achievement. On 14 Nov, the world’s top music archivist, Emeritus Professor Anthony Seegar of UCLA will give two talks on music archives and launch a new exhibition in the Music Archive of Monash University (MAMU). There will also be seminars on Japanese theatre and baseball in East Asia. Hope you will enjoy those inspiring events!
