Dear all friends,
We are happy to invite you to Monash Asia Institute's International Conference "Asian Cultural and Media Studies Now".
The conference will critically revisit some of the key issues in the study of Asian culture, media and communications, which have been developed rapidly over the last twenty years, to discuss what kinds of new approaches and scholarly frameworks are required in the current socio-historical context.
We look forward to seeing you at Monash University in November!

Hi all, —maybe because it’s so tedious to post things in the new H-net, mostly we see not discussions, but conference announcements etcetera posted on instruction (many thanks for all those, of course!). Yet the posts are still called "discussion posts" . . . so:
