About the conference


The 4th FASIC conference will address a range of topics in the fields of innovation, history, cultural studies, media and communications, education, international relations, linguistics and literature. Our objective is to share knowledge and mutual understanding by showcasing recent research on Australia and to promote Australian Studies as an internationally lively and engaging field of inquiry. The theme of Sustainability: social and environmental issues may be interpreted as a global door to open up wide scholarship on Australian Studies in China, Australia and the wider world, including comparative approaches. Scholars from across the globe will join their Chinese and Australian counterparts in a truly international gathering.
