The Indian Diaspora: Hindus and Sikhs in Australia

edited by Purushottama Bilimoria, Jayant Bhalchandra Bapat and Philip Hughes

ISBN: 9788124608128
Year: 2015

Since the late 1990s, the Indian community in Australia has grown faster than any other immigrant community. The Indian Diaspora has made substantial contributions to the multi-ethnic and multi-religious diversity within Australia. The growth of Hinduism and Sikhism through gurus, temples, yoga and rituals of many kind has brought new colours, images, customs and practices to the profile of Australian religion, and the Australian landscape more widely. At the same time, Hinduism and Sikhism have themselves been transformed as Hindus and Sikhs from different parts of India as well as Fiji, Malaysia and other parts of the world have come together to establish a pan-Indian ethos. Hindus and Sikhs here have also interacted with other sectors of the Australian population and with religions from the Western world. This is the theme of this book.

The Indian Diaspora: Hindus and Sikhs in AustraliaThe Indian Diaspora covers the theory of diaspora, the historical development of the Indian communities in Australia since the late 19th century to the present times, current practices and statistical profiles of Hindus and Sikhs in Australia, and interactions between Hindus and Sikhs with the wider Australian community. There are case-studies of the Indian students and women in the Australian community, of Indian communities in Melbourne and South Australia, and of temple building and the Sikh gurdwara.

The book has been edited by and contains contributions from Purushottama Bilimoria, an internationally-known scholar of philosophy and religion, Jayant Bhalchandra Bapat, one of Australia’s most senior Hindu priests and a scholar of Hinduism, and Philip Hughes, a leading analyst of the religious profiles of the Australian people. It also contains contributions from several other prominent scholars. Included are special essays on the importance of diaspora by the late Ninian Smart and on the 19th century Afghan cameleers and Indian hawkers.

The European Union and India: Rhetoric or Meaningful Partnership?

Pascaline Winand, Marika Vicziany and Poonam Datar, Monash University, Australia

ISBN: 978 1 78347 038 9
Publication Date: 2015

This multi-disciplinary book provides a comprehensive analysis of the EU–India relationship from 1950 to the present day, as a way of assessing whether a meaningful and sustainable relationship is emerging and whether it will play a role in the future of international diplomacy and business.

 The European Union and India Rhetoric or Meaningful Partnership? Pascaline Winand, Marika Vicziany and Poonam Datar, Monash University, Australia

The question comes at a time of significant changes in the re-configuration of global power. Using both historical insights and contemporary policy analysis, the authors investigate whether the social, economic and political interests of the EU and India are genuinely compatible. Leaders in both regions have been promoting the relationship for many decades, but the authors scrutinise their words to discover whether they are merely rhetorical gestures or reflect genuine complementarities. They also investigate the motivation behind the relationship, and provide an in-depth analysis of the areas of mutual interest and conflict. The book examines these issues in the context of the history of the EU–India relationship, alongside contemporary policy concerns.

This comparative book will appeal to academics, students and policy-makers with an interest in international politics and public policy, economic development and business, Asian studies and European studies.

Asian Horizons: Giuseppe Tucci’s Buddhist, Indian, Himalayan and Central Asian Studies

Angelo Andrea Di Castro and David Templeman (eds.)
Monash University Publishing 2015

ISBN (pb): 978-1-922235-33-6

Asian Horizons: Giuseppe Tucci's Buddhist, Indian, Himalayan and Central Asian Studies Asian Horizons is published in honour of the great scholar of Asia, Professor Giuseppe Tucci (1894–1984). Through the work of present-day scholars, both senior and emerging, this volume represents their efforts to maintain the impetus of the profound legacy Tucci left. Renowned to this day as a founding scholar in an extraordinarily wide variety of disciplines, as well as being an explorer of hitherto largely unknown lands, such as Tibet, Tucci gained a deep knowledge of Asia through a familiarity with its people, places and literature. His contribution to modern scholarship is nothing less than remarkable. The volume reflects the broad variety of topics in which Tucci himself displayed deep interest and serves as an homage to his work.

Centre of Southeast Asian Studies

The Centre of Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS) was established in 1964, soon after the founding of Monash University, in recognition of the importance of the Southeast Asian region to the university and the expertise of Monash staff in this field. It continues to maintain an international reputation for excellence in scholarship on Southeast Asia. Leading international scholars, in particular in the fields of Indonesian, Cambodian and Malaysian studies, have contributed to the activities of the Centre while teaching and researching in a wide range of disciplines. These include anthropology, economics, education, geography, history, law, linguistics, literature, music, politics and sociology.

Since the mid-1960s Monash has awarded more than 300 postgraduate research degrees for work on Southeast Asia. While these students have mainly worked in discipline-based departments, the Centre of Southeast Asian Studies has provided invaluable opportunities for cross-disciplinary interchange and debate. This network of postgraduate students, many of whom now occupy senior academic positions in the region, is an invaluable resource for the Centre and continues to generate joint publications and research activities.

This major research focus is also supported by the Southeast Asian collection of the Asian Research Library at Monash. Over the years this has developed as a resource of international significance, and is particularly strong in the Indonesian area.

A major activity of the Centre is its forthnightly seminar series. The seminars, presented by leading scholars of Southeast Asia and more junior researchers and postgraduate students, cover both major current issues in the region and more specialised topics.

The Centre has hosted many large international conferences over the years, as well as smaller workshops. Most of the major conferences have focussed on Indonesia, dealing with topics such as state and civil society in Indonesia, democracy in the 1950s and 1960s, the politics of middle class Indonesia and the recent economic and political crisis. Important conferences have also been organized on Cambodia and other parts of the region.

As well as providing analysis and expert commentary on the current economic and political situation in the region, and especially in Indonesia, the Centre has also been involved at a more practical level. The Centre played an important coordination and training role for the independent observers monitoring both the 1999 presidential elections in Indonesia and the independence referendum in East Timor.

National Centre for South Asian Studies

The National Centre for South Asian Studies was established in 1992 with the support of the Commonwealth Government of Australia’s Department of Education. For the first four years, Commonwealth Government funding was matched by funding from eight Australian universities that had a commitment to South Asian Studies. As a result of the restructuring of education and universities in Australia during the late 1990s, the National Centre for South Asian Studies was formally absorbed into the Monash Asia Institute in 2001. Today, it is an integral part of the Asian Studies program at Monash University. However, the Centre continues to engage in a wide range of activities which bring together South Asian scholars from across Australia. As such, it remains one of the most important networking institutions in Australia providing a conduit to and between Australian expertise on South Asia.

South Asia represents about a quarter of the world’s population and one of the world’s largest markets. The region includes India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, the states of the Himalaya and the various islands in the region surrounding the Indian subcontinent.

The National Centre for South Asian Studies undertakes a range of activities including the following:

  1. research consultancies
  2. research collaborations with Australian and international institutes, universities and think tanks
  3. seminars and conferences on regional security in the Asia-Pacific
  4. postgraduate workshops
  5. maintenance of a database on South Asian expertise
