Monash Asia Institute Focus Theme Inaugural Seminar
Key issues on Diversity, Mobility and Inclusion for Trans-Asian approaches
Date & Time: 31 March Friday, 12-2pm (light lunch will be provided)
Venue: N105, Caulfield Campus, Monash University
Julian Millie (Centre for Southeast Asian Studies)
Koichi Iwabuchi (Monash Asia Institute)
In a globalized world in which people’s mobility and accompanying human exchange have been intensifying, the promotion of diversity is a key issue. While the current attention to diversity tends to be economy-driven with an emphasis on its utility to make the workplace creative and globally competitive, this seminar will discuss what kind of issues regarding socio-cultural diversity, human mobility and inclusion are emergent and need to be critically studied in various parts of Asia and whether and how we can make a comparative examination of Asian cases and/or collaboratively tackle the transnationally shared issues which are distinctly articulated in specific local contexts.
This seminar is an inaugural event of the establishment of MAI focus themes and regional coordinators (please see http://artsonline.monash.edu.au/mai/). Together with focus theme and regional coordinators, we will discuss how to productively promote collaborative research by organizing seminars/conferences and inviting international visiting scholars to Monash.
Please RSVP for catering purpose to MAI-Enquiries@monash.edu by 25 March.
