Intersections: Gender and Sexuality in Asia and the Pacific
Issue 24, June 2010


This special issue of Intersections would not have been possible without the assistance provided to the Interrogating Trauma: Arts & Media Responses to Collective Suffering international conference, held at Murdoch and Curtin universities in December 2008, and we would like to thank our sponsors, who generously provided financial and in-kind support. From Murdoch University: the School of Media Communication and Culture; the Faculty of Creative Technology and Media; the National Academy of Screen and Sound (NASS); the Kulbardi Aboriginal Centre; and the Institute for Sustainable Societies Education and Politics. From Curtin University: the Centre for Advanced Studies in Australia, Asia and the Pacific (CASAAP); the Faculty of Humanities; the School of Media, Culture and Creative Arts; the Centre for Aboriginal Studies; and the Sustainability Policy Institute. Thanks are also due to our conference co-convener Dr Miyume Tanji (Curtin).

The conference and the present collection would not have been possible without the stimulating contributions from the authors assembled here, and many others whose works have been assembled in other publications.[1] Our sincere thanks to Carolyn Brewer, editor of Intersections, for her encouragement and patience, and to all of our external peer reviewers. Finally, special thanks go to our Publications Coordinator, Dr Christina Houen (Curtin), for her diligence and professionalism.
