About the book

This is the fourth volume in the series of Australian–Asian Association publications and carries on the interdisciplinary and international tradition of the same. The intensely provocative theme of ‘change’ is traced through motifs of convergence or conflict across a multiplicity of disciplines. The volume has attracted contributions from some of the best-known authorities in their different fields. The papers cover subjects ranging from Sri Lankan cricket to diplomacy on the world scene; from literary ‘blogging’ to trade performance; from Bollywood audiences to aboriginal rights in Australia and the development of Australian studies in Spain; from a nineteenth-century Shakespeare production in Sri Lanka to a performance of Bizet’s ‘The Pearl Fishers’ in Sydney. They cover the phenomenon of change as it manifests itself in a range of disciplines and highlight shared commonalities as well as contrasted experiences and perspectives. The book is a record of the richness of the dialogue between disparate groups connected by scholarly interest and intellectual curiosity, in fact, a global academic community.
