Event description

Description


Presenters will focus on Japan, South Korea, and Indonesia, both in relation to their wartime histories of Japanese military sexual slavery as well as their contemporary justice movements, especially for women and girls. Links between wartime history and current-day feminism and its aligned movements in the Asia-Pacific region show political movements and ideas developing in directions possibly different from those in the West. Learning from these different approaches and insights is a goal of the workshop, and participation by students, staff and community members is warmly welcomed.

Presenters include Kate McGregor (Melbourne), Yuki Tanaka (Hiroshima), Mohita Roman (Monash), Emma Dalton (RMIT), and Caroline Norma (RMIT).

Morning, lunch, and afternoon refreshments will be served.

This workshop is proudly brought to you by the ANU Gender Institute
