Abstract

Asia Literacy in a Global World presents multiple reflections on the purpose and realisation of Asia Literacy from the macro to the micro level, taking into account the sociopolitical changes since 2015. It brings together updated theoretical perspectives about the current Australian sociocultural and political context and how that has influenced attempts at pedagogical advancement in Asia Literacy and ethnographic perspectives from Australian classrooms. The authors discuss key issues including those of overlapping and multiple identities, tensions between economic and cultural capabilities, the risks of privileging content knowledge over social engagement and the place of the student as key stakeholder.
