The Women in Asia (WIA) Conference continues a tradition started by the Asian Studies Association of Australia (ASAA) Women’s Caucus (now Women’s Forum) in 1981.
This will be the first time this Conference has been held on the west coast, and it follows the UWA hosting of the Asian Studies Association of Australia Conference in 2014.
The 2017 Women in Asia Conference provides an opportunity to showcase the work of scholars who research women and gender relations in Asia. WIA conferences particularly attract scholars and practitioners from Asia, as well as local and domestic participants from the community sector, academia and government.
With a particular thematic focus on 'Gender-Based Violence', the 2017 WIA conference aims to draw together scholars and activists working on this issue in Asia and Australia, to foster a discussion on the various challenges and strategies involved in addressing Violence Against Women in different contexts.
We also welcome presentations on issues outside the conference theme, on issues relating to women in Asia, including (but not limited to): work; health; media and popular culture; politics and social movements; social relations; life stages and transitions and sexuality.
WIA 2017 will include a postgraduate workshop and will offer limited travel bursaries (details coming soon). We welcome papers and panels from scholars and practitioners from Asia, as well as local and domestic participants from the community sector, academia and government.
Enquiries can be directed to: email@example.com
More information on postgraduate bursaries can be found here.
Further information to be posted soon.
