Women in Asia Conference 2021 Fashioning Gender in Asia

La Trobe University is pleased to announce that it will host the 13th Women in Asia Conference from 23-26 November, 2021. The theme of this year’s conference is Fashioning Gender in Asia.

Calls for presentations are now open!

Fashioning Gender in Asia builds on past Women in Asia conferences and the Women’s Forum of the Asian Studies Association of Australia to further research on gender in the Asian region. The conference explores how gender, sexuality and bodies; objects, culture and memory; citizenship, geography and economy, and technology, media and mobility intersect and entwine in the very fabric of gendered personhoods in/of Asia.

Presentations are invited in line with five streams: Fashioning the Body (art, culture, embodiment); Borders Frayed/Reinforced (nation, citizenship, mobility); Stitched Together (law, human rights and social justice); Digital Tapestries (technologies and relationships), and Materialities (economy, work, education, welfare).

This year’s conference is fully online. However, we seek to establish social hubs at a number of universities to enable local delegates to meet in person during the conference.
