Experiencing Turbulence: Asia in the Australian Imaginary

David Walker (Author) Australia-India Interdisciplinary Research Series

This book brings together a selection of essays by David Walker, Alfred Deakin Professor of Australian Studies at Deakin University, Victoria, on Australian representation of Asia. It addresses the key themes in the Australian response to Asia—survivalist anxieties, climate and race, population and immigration, gender and mythologies, and regional identities.

Also, it reveals the central role that Asia has played in the formation of ideas of nation and identity in Australia from the late 19th century to the present. Finally, it underlines the often unpredictable character of engagement and the fluid nature of fear and fascination, proximity and distance in the Australia-Asia relationship.
