Report – Gendering Asia Network WORKSHOP 8-10 November 2010

Gendering Asia Network WORKSHOP 8-10 November 2010

In November twenty-nine Nordic scholars and PhD students came together at a workshop at NIAS. The workshop, which was supported by a generous grant from NordForsk, marked the initiation of a new stage of Gendering Asia Network (GAN) activity. At the GAN conferences held in 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2010 participants have presented and discussed their work. The workshop was somewhat different as participants presented their work as the basis for defining areas of common interest and established five research project groups:

  1. Post-colonial cultural trauma and violence
  2. Mobile Livelihoods & Gendered Citizenship
  3. Ideas in Transit/Somatic Engineering
  4. Communication and Intra-action
  5. Experiencing Technology – intra-active constructions of identity and the body
