2024 marks the seventh year of the establishment of Asian Art Research Now, the annual postgraduate symposium of the Australasian Network for Asian Art (AN4AA). 


The postgraduate symposium has become a flagship event for the network, bringing together early-career Asian art researchers from Australia and New Zealand to share their research-in-progress among postgraduate peers and experts in the field. 


The objective of the day-long symposium is to highlight and share the vitality and diversity of Asian art research being undertaken by current and recent postgraduate students and to foster supportive critique, feedback and conversations across institutions, as well as across the diverse geographies and temporalities of Asian art research.


As a platform for connecting with other scholars and emerging academics across Australia and New Zealand and for sharing research in progress, we invite submissions from various academic backgrounds, including from MA (coursework or research) students to doctoral candidates, across the disciplines of art history, creative practice, arts management, museums and curatorship, and heritage studies.
