If you are interested in Asian-Australian issues...

... there's a forum coming up, and I'm speaking at it.

ASIAN-AUSTRALIAN FORUM
and
AMERASIA LAUNCH

The Asian Australian Studies Research Network (AASRN) is holding a mini-forum to highlight activities in Asian Australian Studies that benefit from connections with their Asian North American counterparts. The forum precedes a launch that will celebrate the publication of the special ‘Asian Australian’ issue of Amerasia.

Monday 4th October
Forum 1pm - 5pm, followed by Launch 5:30pm - 6pm
Level 2, Museum of Chinese Australian History, 22 Cohen Place, Melbourne

So basically I guess there's gonna be some stuff about the Asian-Australian experience, what's happening in the community, and about some of the commonalities and differences we have with our hombres in the USA, and of course in Asia itself. There's gonna be me and a few other bloggers, some academics, and some artistic and journalistic types.

Should be aaight.

Interested? You actually should have RSVP'd by now, but I'm sure the organisers won't hold it against you if you are nice to them.

You can get more info and download the flyer in PDF form here.

Look out for me, I'll be the guy trying his best to seem intelligent.
