The Asian Cultural and Media Studies (ACMS) Research Cluster provides a forum for the exchange of ideas related to research on media and cultural studies in Asian contexts.
Housed under the Monash Asia Institute, the Cluster promotes cross-regional and inter-disciplinary collaborative research on topics as diverse as inter-Asian media culture flows and connections, mobile media in Asia, Asian creative and cultural industries, diasporic media and multiculturalism in Asia and Australia, and film, fashion and celebrities in Asia.
Comprised of academic staff and postgraduate students from Monash University, the Research Cluster holds regular seminars, workshops and conferences, and develops international research projects and networks.
The Cluster welcomes the participation of new members interested in developing innovative research and exchanging ideas in this field. We also particularly welcome new postgraduate students to the Trans-Asian Cultural and Media Studies subtheme of the Monash Film, Media and Communications HDR Program.
