The Wang Gungwu Prize
Asian Studies Review
The Wang Gungwu Prize was established and funded as an annual prize by the Asian Studies Association of Australia (ASAA) in 2013 to recognise and encourage scholarly excellence in its flagship journal, Asian Studies Review. It recognises the best article published in Asian Studies Review in the calendar year.
The Prize is named in honour of Professor Wang Gungwu, the distinguished historian who has contributed enormously to scholarship not only in Australia but also in Malaysia, Hong Kong and Singapore. Professor Wang was also a key person behind the formation of the ASAA in 1976 and has served as its president.
The Wang Gungwu Prize is an award of $1,500.
