Co-hosted by Monash Herb Feith Centre and LLCL, the ASAA 2022 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 conference will take place at Monash University Clayton Campus, and virtually via an online portal, from 5-8 July, 2022.

We are pleased to announce the Call for Proposals is now open.
  • 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. We thus encourage panel, roundtable and workshop organisers to include, where possible, a range of speakers, including people at different levels of their career trajectory.

  • Individual papers
  • Organised Panels
  • Roundtable Discussions
