Trans-Asia events

  • Trans-Asia as method is an academic seminar series that aims to facilitate trans-Asian and cross-disciplinary dialogue by comparatively and collaboratively examining how globally shared issues are similarly, differently, and/or inter-connectedly articulated in various local contexts of Asian regions.

    Scholars working in Australian contexts, and scholars working in Asian Australian experiences are also constitutive of trans-Asian dialogue. Such discussion will lead to developing new conceptualisation and theorisation from Asian experiences and de-Westernising the production of knowledge.
