Mon@sia Events

  • Mon@sia is a public forum that aims to critically engage with “Asia Literacy in the Asian Century” by rethinking fundamental questions around why and how we study about “Asia”.

    Involving undergraduate students and the general public, the forum aims to facilitate discussion of how we go beyond the compartmentalisation of the studies of Asia as something happening “over there”, and how we enhance the sense of shared-ness, together-ness, and conected-ness in global perspectives. We reimagine “Asia” and “Australia” in terms of mutual implications (not to mention the experiences of Asian Australians).

    An informal gathering is also regularly held in which researchers of various interests and discipline get together, get to know each other, and exchange ideas.
