The grades of neurosensory adverse events (NSAEs) induced by FOLFOX4 treatment were compared between Asian and Western colorectal cancer patients and correlated with cumulative oxaliplatin doses. A total of 3359 patients treated with FOLFOX4 were analyzed: 1515 from two Asian studies (Japanese Post Marketing Surveillance [J-PMS] and MASCOT) and 1844 from four Western studies (EFC2962, N9741, EFC4584, and MOSAIC). The onset of NSAEs was analyzed in terms of treatment duration and cumulative dose of oxaliplatin. The incidence of grade ≥3 NSAEs ranged from 2.0% to 4.4% in Asian studies and 9.3% to 19% in Western studies. The cumulative doses of oxaliplatin that induced grade ≥3 NSAEs in 10% of patients were higher in Asian studies (1526 mg/m2 or not reached) than in Western studies (805–832 mg/m2). No significant correlations were noted between occurrence of grade ≥3 NSAEs and demographic/baseline characteristics. The frequency of escalation from grade 0 to 1 in J-PMS was statistically significantly lower than that in EFC4584, and that from grade 0 to 1 and from grade 1 to 2 in MASCOT lower than that in MOSAIC. The cumulative oxaliplatin doses administered during grade escalation in J-PMS were similar to those in EFC2962 or EFC4584. All grade-3 NSAEs in MASCOT and 96% of those in MOSAIC improved to grade 2 or less within 12 months of follow-up. The Asian populations accrued to these studies appear to be less susceptible to the neurotoxicity of oxaliplatin than the mainly Caucasian populations in the Western studies.

An interdisciplinary subject that draws on literature, history, anthropology, film, and cultural studies to examine the experiences of Asian Americans in US society. Covers the first wave of Asian immigration in the nineteenth century, the rise of anti-Asian movements, the experiences of Asian Americans during WWII, the emergence of the Asian American movement in the 1960s, and the new wave of "post-1965" Asian immigration. Examines the role these historical experiences played in the formation of Asian American ethnicity, and explores how these experiences informed Asian American literature and culture. Addresses key societal issues such as racial stereotyping, media racism, affirmative action issues, the glass ceiling, the "model minority" syndrome, and anti-Asian harassment or violence.

In the extant literature either income or consumption expenditures as measured over short periods of time have been regarded as a proxy for the material well-being of households. However, economists have long recognized that a household’s sense of well-being depends not just on its average income or expenditures, but also on the risks it faces and its ability to deal with these risks. Hence vulnerability is a more satisfactory measure of welfare. In this study we used the concept of vulnerability as expected poverty to assess the household vulnerability to poverty in four Central Asian countries: Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan. Except for Tajikistan, headcount poverty and vulnerability rates are significantly different. We also find that vulnerability differs significantly across households by location and selected household characteristics. In this paper we use a simple empirical measurement that allows estimating the headcount vulnerability to poverty using cross-section data. This measurement is based on the strong assumption that households have the same conditional distribution of consumption in a stationary environment. While this approach cannot capture all dimensions of vulnerability, it at least begins to raise the policy issue that vulnerability should be considered alongside poverty.; Article written under name Tu Dang.

This thesis considers the ways in which Australia has been publicly represented in ten Asian societies in the twentieth century. It shows how these representations are at odds with Australian opinion leaders’ assertions about being a multicultural society, with their claims about engagement with Asia, and with their understanding of what is ‘typically’ Australian. It reviews the emergence and development of Asian regionalism in the twentieth century, and considers how Occidentalist strategies have come to be used to exclude and marginalise Australia. A historical survey outlines the origins of representations of Australia in each of the ten Asian countries, detecting the enduring influence both of past perceptions and of the interests of each country’s opinion leaders. Three test cases evaluate these findings in the light of events in the late twentieth century: the first considers the response in the region to the One Nation party, the second compares that with opinion leaders’ reaction to the crisis in East Timor; and the third presents a synthesis of recent Asian Australian fiction and what it reveals about Asian representations of Australia from inside Australian society. The thesis concludes that Australian policies and practices enable opinion leaders in the ten countries to construct representations of Australia in accordance with their own priorities and concerns...

In the Introduction to Emperor Huan and Emperor Ling, I gave a summary account of the civil administration of Later Han. As the imperial government, however, became all but irrelevant in the years of war which began in 189, I present below a survey of the military structure of the dynasty as it entered its final years. At the end of the reign of Emperor Ling, the facade of civil government remained intact. In formal terms, immediately below the ruler, the Three Excellencies (san gong), with rank expressed by a nominal salary of Ten Thousand shi of Grain (wan shi), and the Nine Ministers (jiu qing), rank/salary of Fully Two Thousand shi (zhong erqian shi), headed the administration, while the office of the Masters of Writing (shangshu), the imperial secretariat, drew up and circulated the edicts and orders with which government was carried out. Outside the capital, provinces (zhou) were headed by Governors (mu) or Inspectors (cishi), and these were divided into subordinate commanderies (jun) under Grand Administrators (tai shou) or states (guo), nominal fiefs of kings (wang) which were in practice ruled by Chancellors (xiang). Commanderies and states were in turn divided into counties (xian), the basic level of Han government, ruled by Prefects (ling)...

This thesis sets out to explore and demystify two dominant images of female sex workers produced by hegemonic discourses of our period: one a ruined, victimised woman; the other a destroying body that is a public health menace. It challenges these discourses of alterity, of the sex worker as “other” and their antithetical constructions of women’s agency. ... My Blood, Sweat and Tears is part of the broader struggle to resignify the place of sex workers internationally, especially in relation to the complex interplay between structural constraints and determinants and women’s agency and self-determination. Its central conclusion is that an awareness of women’s agency does not mean that we have to ignore structural inequalities, grounded in gender or economics.; Australian National University - ANU Australian Postgraduate Award and the Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies provided fieldwork funding; Yes

The Conference on Central Asian Languages and Linguistics (ConCALL) was founded in 2014 at Indiana University by Dr. Öner Özçelik, the residing director of the Center for Languages of the Central Asian Region (CeLCAR). As the nation’s sole U.S. Department of Education funded Language Resource Center focusing on the languages of the Central Asian Region, CeLCAR’s main mission is to strengthen and improve the nation’s capacity for teaching and learning Central Asian languages through teacher training, research, materials development projects, and dissemination. As part of this mission, CeLCAR has an ultimate goal to unify and fortify the Central Asian language learning community by facilitating networking between linguists and language educators, encouraging research projects that will inform language instruction, and provide opportunities for professionals in the field to both showcase their work and receive feedback from their peers. Thus ConCALL was established to be the first international academic conference to bring together linguists and language educators in the languages of the Central Asian region, including both the Altaic and Eastern Indo-European languages spoken in the region, to focus on research into how these specific languages are represented formally...

This article reflects on the experience of European integration in light of the ongoing process of regional integration in the Northeast Asian region. Based on the existing theories, the article summarizes twelve lessons of European integration, highlighting, for example, the importance of identifying a functional area, the convergence of interests (not an identity), the existence of strong leadership and supranational institutions, the significance of 'domestic democracy,' and the presence of hospitable external circumstances. The history and prominent current projects of regional cooperation in the Northeast Asian region are reviewed, followed by an investigation of the relevance and applicability of the lessons of European integration to Northeast Asia so as to derive a set of practical policy prescriptions for promoting regional integration in the region.

My question for this short paper is simple: as scholars involved in Asian Studies should it not be an imperative that we value work produced in Asian languages on an equal footing with that being written in English? Should it not furthermore be a prerequisite for Asian Studies scholars working in English language institutions that they actively produce work in the Asian languages they have studied?; Australian National University and Leiden University; Paper presented at the Transmission of academic values in Asian Studies workshop, 25 & 26 June 2009, Canberra, ANU

This paper is like a pilot project for my doctoral research and it is very much a work in progress. In my doctoral research I am looking at the filmic representations of transmigrant East Asian queer women in contemporary Canada. While addressing sexuality, the term “queer” also encompasses the intersection of multiple identities such as race and gender. I use the word, “transmigrant” rather migrant or immigrant, as Martin Manalansan suggests, to address “the multi-stranded relationships” (Manalansan 2000: 185) such mobile groups have with both their home and settlement countries. I especially want to focus on two aspects of this research. The first is an examination of how the racialised, queered, and gendered body is presented, appropriated, or subverted in films about and by Asian queer women. Secondly, I want to look at the “monolithic” representation of Asian women in much Western discourse and how differences are delineated by Asian queer women from their own perceptions and interpretations. I will mainly look at the work of transmigrant queer women from filmmakers from Taiwan, China, and Hong Kong who identify themselves as non-heterosexual, and who live or stay in two highly multicultural Canadian cities: Vancouver and Toronto.; AsiaPacifiQueer Network...

Language learning is a commitment to the state of the arts of Asian Studies, but also one of the tools needed to practice in the field. As scholars in Asian Studies, we have an obligation to ensure that these tools are passed on to future scholars, for use in ways we have not yet managed and in situations we have not yet experienced. Transferring language skills requires good teaching, and good teachingarguably rests on a passion for learning, in practice as well as in principle. We can facilitate this transferral through our own practice: keeping abreast of literaturein our field language; developing (second) language skills with which to publish outside the Anglophone centre and creating opportunities for dialogue in our field language(s). Notwithstanding the pressure for academics to publish fast and publish well, we need to remain attendant to intellectual rigor, and to the theoretical debates that occur in the communities we study. Ultimately, if we look to sustain a vibrant intellectual community engaged in studies of Asia, we need to engage in the difficult but rewarding task of learning to speak (and write) in Other language(s), and to navigate a path towards a more truly inclusive scholarly community.; Australian National University and Leiden University; Paper presented at the Transmission of academic values in Asian Studies workshop...

Foreword: Since the hard-copy of To Establish Peace is now out of print, and is easily available only through specialist libraries, it seems appropriate to offer the text in electronic form to those who may be interested in the history of the Three Kingdoms, perhaps the most tumultuous and romantic of all Chinese history. I have other work at http://www.anu.edu.au/asianstudies/decrespigny/, and I have also placed Volume 1 of To Establish Peace at that site. In the presentation below, the original English-language of the 1996 edition has been preserved, with a few minor corrections, but the requirements of the internet have compelled a number of changes in format. Firstly, no characters are included. There are, however, detailed references to Chinese works, and those who wish to do further research and checking should have no difficulty in identifying the relevant texts. Given the convenience of searching electronic documents, moreover, I have not included an index. Second, rather than running heads to show the chapter or year on each page, at intervals and throughout the notes I indicate in the margin the year which is under consideration: thus Ja 6: 201 means that the text is rendering the chronicle for the first year of Jian'an...

Many investors in developed countries believe the Asian emerging market to be highly risky due to numerous uncertainties including limited market information to make sound investment decisions. However, still successful investment deals were completed by many investors who are already in such markets, and how those investors make sound investment decisions is in need on explanation. Therefore, this thesis explores institutional real estate investors' behavior on entrance to Asian emerging markets, their investment decision making process, and data utilization within each process. Through 14 qualitative in-depth interviews with key institutional investors in the U.S. and Korea, investment decision making processes and data utilization behaviors are examined and summarized in a generalized format. Interview results indicate that an initial entrance to Asian emerging markets occurs rather through a passive introduction of a potential deal by third party than an active search for a target deal by the investor. Also, the general decision-making process for real estate investment starts from sourcing and sorting, followed by review of a potential deal, primary investment committee meeting, due diligence, secondary investment committee meeting...

In the Australian academy a revaluing of fiction, particularly the work of talented Asian Australians, for what it says, not necessarily in support of one kind of manifesto or another, but about our complex human synergy, and in many and varied voices, may be overdue. Facing widespread challenges to ‘merely academic’ cultural studies, as we are, this is the time for academic research to come to the rescue of the work of writers, and appreciating it, rather than making political ammunition out of it to fire at each other.; Australian National University and Leiden University; Paper presented at the Transmission of academic values in Asian Studies workshop, 25 & 26 June 2009, Canberra, ANU
