    The International Australian Studies Association (InASA) was formed in 1995. It builds on the foundational work of the former Australian Studies Association (AUSTA). The formation of the new association was a recognition that Australian studies is now an international enterprise with Australian studies centres and professional associations throughout Asia, Europe and North America. InASA's aim is to promote links between the Australian and international Australian studies communities, and to lobby Federal and State governments to support the development of Australian studies internationally. InASA welcomes individuals, institutions, Australian studies centres and Associations as members.
     
    InASA publishes a newsletter, Crossings, three times a year. Crossings welcomes news from Australian studies centres and associations and from individual researchers, scholars, teachers and students internationally. It lists forthcoming conferences and publishes special articles of interest to Australian studies scholars. Crossings circulates widely amongst the international Australian Studies community. InASA members are pleased to make their newsletter free to all who might have use of it at http://inasa.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=72&Itemid=33 . 
     
    InASA produces the Journal of Australian Studies (University of Queensland Press), the premier Australian studies journal. The present executive draws on Australian Studies expertise nationally and internationally.
