Asian Currents is the ASAA’s blog. It aims to connect Australia’s academic experts on Asia with journalists, policymakers, business people, artists and other educators. By telling you what is happening in the research world, we hope you will be able to make better use of the wealth of knowledge available and that you will recognize the importance of fostering Australia’s Asia knowledge.

Asian Currents (ISSN 1449-4418) was first published in March 2004 and was generously funded in its first two years with a grant from The Myer Foundation.  From 2006 until the end of 2009 Asian Currents was funded by  the ARC Asia Pacific Futures Research Network.
