Now in its fifth year Asian Art Research Now has now become the flagship event of the Australasian Network for Asian Art (an4aa), a collegial group of Australian and New Zealand researchers who have come together to strengthen a sense of scholarly community in this field. An4aa's objective is to highlight the vitality and immediacy of Asian art research being undertaken by emerging scholars, and showcase the work of recent PhD graduates and current PhD students. The day-long
workshop seeks to foster supportive critique and generate conversations across institutional boundaries, as well as those of geography and temporality within the field of Asian art history.
