The ASAA Conference 'Social Justice in Pandemic Times' will bring together academics, activists, artists, students, practitioners and community members from across disciplines with shared interest in Asia, including Asian communities in Australia and globally.

The biennial Asian Studies Association of Australia (ASAA) conference is the largest gathering of experts working on Asia in the southern hemisphere and has been a regular feature of Australian scholarly life since 1976. 

The theme of 'Social Justice' is particularly apt as the region grapples with complex issues in a time of COVID-19.

The conference is open to all who wish to share their scholarship and hear about Asia. It seeks to create conversation between people working across Asia. We welcome inter-country and interdisciplinary research and, befitting the theme, we aspire to ensure speakers represent all walks of life and engage a diverse range of topics.

The 2022 ASAA conference calls for SEVEN types of proposals: individual papers, organised panels, roundtables, artist sessions, workshops, book launches and postgraduate poster presentations. The 2022 conference will be hosted as a hybrid event with presenters having the option to present either virutally or in person.

Submission can be made via the conference website -

We look forward to receiving your submission.
