From the Director’s Desk
In October, we will have intriguing events that give us precious food for thought regarding “Australia in the Asian Century”. National Centre for Australian Studies (NCAS) will organize China-Australia Research Symposium, which features three visiting fellows from China. Mon@sia will discuss the issues of language teaching and Asia literacy. Trans-Asia as method will critically examine the politics of border security from the perspective of the Indonesian island of Bintan. We will also have seminars on urban culture in Manila and ethnic diversity and hotel management in Kuala Lumpur. All of them will present us with significant perspectives to deepen and complicate our “Asia literacy”!
