The terms, “Asian and Canadian,” are far from stable, and even less so in these times of rapid social and economic transformations brought on by the shifting demographics of transnational flows especially in Canada where the so-called Asianization of social and cultural spaces is producing new forms of cultural anxiety and racialized conflicts.” (Miki 2011).The Centre for Policy Studies on Culture and Communities has invited a panel of academics working across “Asia – Canada” to start a discussion to explore the paradoxical movements and containments of researching and writing between these two terms as they float as signifiers / metonyms / traces / tenuously held together with a hyphen, a tissue of possibility beyond how they are each discursively constituted in particular area studies.
 
Sponsored by the Centre For Policy Studies on Culture and Communities (SFU), the Department of English (SFU), the Dean’s Office, Faculty for Communication, Art and Technology (SFU) and the Asian Canadian Study Society. The event was organized by the CPCC Working Group on Asia – Canada, which includes Davina Bhandar, Christine Kim, Helen Leung, Roy Miki and Kirsten E. McAllister
