Diaspora as method: Inter-Asia Cultural Studies and the Asian Australian Studies Research Network 
 
Olivia KHOO
 
ABSTRACT    What is the place of the diasporas within the Inter-Asia Cultural Studies movement, and how can Asian diasporas in the West contribute to Inter-Asia’s intellectual project of “problematizing Asia”? Developing a notion of diaspora as method, this essay highlights the complementary relationship between the Asian Australian Studies Research Network and the Inter-Asia Cultural Studies network. It argues that the Inter-Asia network has much to gain from embracing the Asian Australian diaspora as an interlocutor with shared priorities and concerns, and that Asian Australian studies can also productively learn from Inter-Asia’s alternative model of institutionalisation, thereby expanding its theoretical and methodological frames of reference. 
 
KEYWORDS: Diaspora; Asian Australian Studies Research Network; Inter-Asia Cultural Studies; institutionalisation; method
