MAI Bulletin – November/December 2015

MAI BULLETIN NOVEMBER_DECEMBER 2015_

From the MAI Director’s Desk

As second semester is approaching the end, we are moving into a conference season. November and early December will have many interesting seminars and conferences at Monash University and around Melbourne, some of which you will find mentioned in this Bulletin. The ARC DP and DECRA 2016 results were just released and a number of our MAI colleagues have been successful in their applications—just to name a few from the Faculty of Arts: Margaret Kartomi, Shimako Iwasaki, John Tebbutt, Agnieszka Sobocinska, Olivia Khoo and myself. Let us toast our success at the MAI End of the Year gathering in December (the detail will be announced later in November). Last but not least, I am delighted to announce that MAI is significantly updating the Researcher database on the MAI webpage, which will include researchers from all Monash Faculties. This data will be available to the public shortly. Please check it out to see the strength of wide-ranging research on Asian regions at Monash!
