Asian Currents - Overview

About Asian Currents

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 sharing the latest developments in the research world, we hope to enable better use of the wealth of knowledge available and greater recognition of the importance of fostering knowledge of Asia in Australia.

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.

Asian Currents is published by the ASAA and edited by Natasha Naidu.
