Description - Australia and Asia by Maryanne Dever
Focuses on a series of interactions and exchanges - whether philosophical, political, aesthetic, or commercial - between Australia and the cultures of the Asia-Pacific region. Emphasis is placed on the discursive means by which Asia is represented and/or implicated in a variety of contemporary Australian cultural practices and on a consideration of the complex network of economies which constitute those representations: market economies, economies of bodies, sexualities and desire; economies of exchange, production and consumption. By focusing on such practices as film, the visual arts, advertising, and journalism, these essays also examine the various processes by which Asia is recoded, re-presented and marketed in Australia. Cultural contexts include Hong Kong, Japan, the Philippines, Vietnam, Cambodia and the Pacific rim.
