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.

  • FOCUS THEMES & REGIONAL COORDINATORS (**Inaugural Seminar on 31 March**)

    MAI establishes four focus themes to promote inter-disciplinary and trans-Asian research collaboration and dialogue. Coordinators of focus themes will organize trans-Asia seminar series. MAI will also invite international scholars who are working on the below themes to give a talk at trans-Asia seminar series.

    1. Migration, Diaspora and Belonging (Coordinated by GIl Soo Han and Mridula Chakraborty)
    2. Diversity, Mobility and Inclusion (coordinated by Julian Millie & Koichi Iwabuchi)
    3. Media, Culture and Performance (coordinated by Ariel Heyanto & Olivia Khoo)
    4. Cultural Citizenship and Public Pedagogy (coordinated by Koichi Iwabuchi & Philip Chan)

     

    MAI also appoint regional coordinators who are responsible for facilitating cross-regional exchange and responding to inquiries about the research of the region:

    East Asia: Gil Soo Han and Gloria Davies/Jonathan Benney

    Southeast Asia: Ariel Heryanto and Julian Millie

    South Asia: Mridula Chakraborty and Chandani Lokuge
