Listening to the Other in multicultural Australia

Project Coordinator: Professor Wanning Sun
Cultural Identities and Communities Node

The project will generate and report on perspectives and insights from some of Australia’s often overlooked ‘ethnic’ voices.

The one-day forum planned for Sydney will lay the foundations for future research initiatives in this area—in particular, the possibility of a team-led ARC linkage project on the same topic—and we anticipate that the likely industry partners for such a project will emerge from this forum. It will also generate the material for an academic report summarising the current state of play of the relevant media industries in Australia. The Melbourne workshop will result in an academic paper updating the key issues in the field of diasporic media research.

The project will take the form of two workshops, at UTS and University of Melbourne. Details will appear here soon.
