Abstract

In recent times, the Australian Curriculum has shifted towards valuing Asia literacy. ‘Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia’ is a cross curriculum priority that signifies how the Australian Curriculum now places an importance on Asia literacy. This article positions Asia literacy discourses within the Australian context, which reveals historical and contemporary anti-Asian racism. Furthermore, the conservative hostiles against Asia literacy have paralleled this contextual backdrop and communicated several arguments that uphold Euro-centric hegemony in the Australian curriculum.
