And so, at pm, I will be moderating the panel:. But are Asians still dangerous in Australia?
In recent years, we have seen people from Asian backgrounds in Australia take their place as leaders in their fields, recognised for their contribution to the arts, sports, music, politics and other fields of endeavour. Members of the Peril Magazine and Asian Australian Democracy Caucus discuss those Asian Australians who are moving and shaking, making and doing in ways that inspire them, against the contemporary and historical context of Australian multiculturalism. We are particularly excited to be bringing together the team from Peril, who so rarely get a chance to be IRL in such numbers.
Please welcome to the e-stage:.

Myth and memory: Australia's war in New Guinea 6. Reversal of fortunes: POW contacts in captivity 7. At war's end: facing the new Asia 8. It examines It examines the historical context in which these associations were established, according to three distinctive postwar historical periods; it examines the cultural milieu in which the phrase Asian Australian has assembled meaning; and it locates the role of the term as both an identity marker and as a basis for intra-ethnic mobilisation.
The article finds that iterations of the combination of Asia and Australia—as either adjectives or nouns—have consistently delineated between identity and nation, nation and belonging, belonging and territoriality. Through the embodied passions and politics of associational life, this article investigates the figurative boundary between Asia and Australia and shows how the paired use of these terms has often reflected profoundly if not epistemologically divergent worldviews.
Moving between photography, film, and sculpture, his Moving between photography, film, and sculpture, his potent imagery often invites us into an unsettling corporeal zone which lies in that liminal space between seduction and repulsion, detachment and obsession, the familiar and the strange. It is through this field of seemingly contradictory relations that the artist is able to subvert our usual relationship to the corporeal and the socialised identities associated with it. Strongly informed by the philosophies of critical theory, Leong's art harnesses our affective response to the 'abject', that which unsettles conventional concepts of identity and culture.
In relation to the body, the abject represents socially-defined 'taboo' elements of the self that are symbolically separated from the subject. Through the use of 'leaky' substances such as blood, milk and honey, Leong's images of the body reinstate the inherent significance of abject elements to the corporeal order.

In so doing, he disarticulates our established ideas concerning identity, in particular questioning accepted notions of 'race', 'gender' and 'colour'. He points to the ways in which these socially-defined concepts are sited in and on the body and negotiated via the body's socialised relations with other bodies.
In tackling stereotypes of identity, Leong's art is also a critique of fixed and totalising categories of identity, pointing instead to the more complex reality of identity as a fluid and shifting practice encompassing multiple and flexible ways of cultural belonging and being in the world. Within his native Australian cultural landscape, Leong's art has been intimately concerned with explorations of 'Asian-Australian' identity in particular and often based on his personal experiences negotiating hegemonic frames of Australian 'whiteness'.
The artist cites early childhood experiences where despite 'feeling Australian' his corporeal difference from the hegemonic white culture would often betray his sense of cultural belonging. In many ways, Leong's art may be understood as means for negotiating a political space for more fluid identities within the spectrum of 'Australian' cultural experience.

Ileto and Rodney J. For over 20 years Asialink has been at the forefront of leadership, research, advocacy and program delivery in Australia-Asia engagement.
In order to embrace the exciting possibilities of the rapidly developing region, Asialink has In order to embrace the exciting possibilities of the rapidly developing region, Asialink has identified the need for Australia to develop deeper and more sustained modes of engagement, and enhance the Asia-capability of people and organisations across all sectors.
To do this effectively requires good quality information and data. This is available for many industries, but lacking in the cultural sector. The objective was to gather data, evidence of best practice strategies and identify the needs of key stakeholders, artists and arts organisations. The wealth of resulting information may be used to guide the development of policies and strategies to further develop Asia engagement and capability of the next five years.
Asianing Australia: Notes toward a critical transnationalism in cultural studies. This research report, commissioned by the Australian Council of Learned Academies to provide evidence-based research and interdisciplinary findings on how to improve Australia's engagement with the countries of Asia , focuses on three This research report, commissioned by the Australian Council of Learned Academies to provide evidence-based research and interdisciplinary findings on how to improve Australia's engagement with the countries of Asia , focuses on three areas of engagement: the facilitative role of multilingualism in the context of English language dominance, the significance of research collaboration in building stronger transnational links across the region, and the crucial importance of deepening cultural relations to overcome the long history of culturally distant relationships between Australia and its neighbouring countries.
Overall, the report argues that smart engagement with Asia requires going beyond short-termism, opportunism and focus on economic benefit, and working towards nurturing wide-ranging, long-term, and mutually beneficial relations, based on the principle of reciprocity. It also highlights the important role played by diasporas Asians in Australia, as well as Australians in Asia in strengthening Australia-Asia relations.

Australia's self-identity and three modes of imagining Asia: a critical perspective on 'Asia Literacy'. Australia has a long but chequered history in its attempts to lift its Asia literacy. While the debate on the Asia literacy deficit has tended to focus on policy and resource matters as well as on schools, curricula, and students, this While the debate on the Asia literacy deficit has tended to focus on policy and resource matters as well as on schools, curricula, and students, this chapter argues that at the core of the issue are some particular ways in which Australia has imagined itself in terms, for example, of a far-flung outpost of Western civilisation that represents the champion of modernity, the end of History and the most valuable universal qualities the human race has to offer.
