CFP: A Multitude of Encounters with Asia – Gender Perspectives

The conference and PhD Course are organized by RIKK - Centre for Women’s and Gender Research & EDDA – Center of Excellence, University of Iceland, NIAS – Nordic Institute of Asian Studies and GAN - Gendering Asia Network One of the great challenges in increased relations with Asia through business, culture, life biographies, historical relations as well as ITC networks is to make the importance of gender visible. Encounters have become increasingly, mutually interrelated and perhaps even dependent in multiple ways. Economically encounters are wide-ranging with financial decisions made in one part of the world affecting the real lives of many in the other part of the world. In the political sphere the need for enhancing mutual understanding and tolerance grows every day. How can we understand these multiple links, interactions and encounters and how are they gendered? Some encounters are vividly obvious and others are less prominently visible, or perhaps consciously or unconsciously made obscure. How is knowledge of encounters being produced, by whom and for what purposes? This conference on macro and micro level encounters with Asia, including encounters between Asia and the Nordic countries, takes the traveling of theories, concepts, ideas, practices, products and people as its starting point and asks 1) How gender and gender relations play into, create, and are created in the course of a multitude of encounters 2) How transnational feminism has produced knowledge in the context of globalization Keynote speakers · Kathy Davis, Senior Research Fellow, Sociology, VU University, Amsterdam · Mary E. John, Senior Fellow, Centre for Women's Development Studies, New Delhi · Wil Burghoorn, Senior Lecturer, Social Anthropology, School of Global Studies, University of Gothenburg More keynotes TBA Commentators for the PhD Course · Wil Burghoorn, Senior Lecturer, Social Anthropology, School of Global Studies, University of Gothenburg · Anna Karlsdottir, Assistant professor, Department of geography and tourism studies, University of Iceland · Cecilia Milwertz, Senior Researcher, NIAS - Nordic Institute of Asian Studies More commentators TBA Deadline for submitting abstract 15 June 2014 (maximum 300 words) For more information, please go to the conference website: http://gendernnc2014.niasconferences.net
