Biennial Conference

The biennial Asian Studies Association of Australia (ASAA) conference is the largest gathering of experts working on Asia in the southern hemisphere.

ASAA2020 Conference

The ASAA 2020 conference was reshaped into online activities in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic. You can find details of these activities outlined below. A note from the conference organisers can be found on the conference website.
