Under a tight deadline, I copy-edited “Locating Asian Australian Cultures”, a 248-page special double issue of the Journal of Intercultural Studies. This interdisciplinary compilation comprised fifteen broad-ranging papers focussing on Asian Australian cultural production and identity. The papers examined the politics of Asian Australian art and literature, as well as disciplinary interventions that the emerging area of Asian Australian studies is making in the academy. Other essays discussed the Vietnamese War memorial in the Sydney suburb of Cabramatta and notions of the ‘sacrificial Asian’ in contemporary films.
I edited each paper for style, consistency and logic, applying the journal’s style policies and liaising with the issue’s editor and contributors. The special issue was first published in 2006, as Volume 27, Issue 1-2 of the journal, and was later released by Routledge in 2008 as the book Locating Asian Australian Cultures.
