The European Association for Studies of Australia, founded in 1989, seeks to promote the teaching of and research in Australian Studies at European tertiary institutions, as well as to increase an awareness of Australian culture throughout Europe. EASA promotes the study and discussion of a wide variety of aspects of Australian culture: Aboriginality, literature, film, the media, popular culture, history, political discourses, the arts. EASA's area of interest also includes New Zealand Studies.
The latest issue of the Journal of the European Association for Studies of Australia has been put online. Guest edited by Vicki Grieves and co-edited by Martina Horáková, it is themed around: "Indigenous marriage, family and kinship in Australia: the persistence of life and hope in colonial and neo-colonial contexts".
The issue features academic articles, interviews, reviews, reminiscences and the original 1984 text of the play “We are Survivors” by Jim Everett.
As part of a reciprocal agreement between EASA and InASA (International Australian Studies Association), it has been decided that a panel would be opened at the associations' respective conferences for members of the partner association and that registration fees would be waivered for that panel.
