   More : The ASAA was founded in 1976 to promote and support the study of Asia in Australia. Its membership is drawn mainly from academic staff and students at Australian universities, but it also takes a strong interest in Asian Studies and the use of Asia-related materials in schools and in Australian attitudes to and policies towards Asia. The Association supports two refereed journals, the Asian Studies Review and the e-Journal of Foreign Language Teaching. It holds a biennial academic conference which offers members and other scholars the opportunity to hear the latest in research and to develop contacts with other scholars. The Association sponsors four book series, covering Southeast Asia, South Asia, East Asia and Women in Asia, as well as issuing an electronic newsletter, Asian Currents. The Association makes regular submissions to governments and universities on issues of importance in Asian Studies. The ASAA highly values its international links and encourages the membership of scholars based outside Australia as well as cooperation with Asian Studies organizations in the region and beyond. Explanations: ASAA 2014 Biennial Conference Asiascapes: Contesting Borders ASAA is pleased to announce that the 20th ASAA biennial conference will be held from 8-10 July 2014 at the University of Western Australia, Perth.
