Performance and Text: Gender Identities in the East and Southeast Asian Context
School of Languages and Comparative Cultural Studies
University of Queensland
21 ­ 23 July 2006

The aim of this invited workshop is to explore 
the links between gendered social experiences and attitudes and cultural
expression in selected East and Southeast Asian 
cultures, China, Japan and Indonesia. The workshop will explore the
intersections between gender and text and 
performance and, in particular, the ways in which these intersections affect
gender representations in the local cultural 
context and how women and men experience their own gender and sexuality.
We understand performance both as performed 
spectacle and in the broader sense of the performance of social roles.
