Event description

Description


An international symposium hosted by the Power Institute, University of Sydney

Studies focused on gender in Southeast Asian societies have emerged, in recent decades, in approximate concurrence with the development of regionally focused Southeast Asian art histories. The founding premise of this international symposium is that there has to date been insufficient intersection between these two fields.

As the first symposium of its kind, Gender in Southeast Asian Art Histories aims to establish the parameters of current research, and to develop inter-disciplinary and transnational frameworks for future studies in the field. Bringing together a range of scholars working on the pre-modern, modern, and contemporary, we seek to consider new perspectives and methodological approaches brought to the fore in art history through studies that are attentive to gender, or how we might reassess art historical narratives through the lens of gender.

The symposium will be launched Wednesday evening, 11 October, with a keynote address from Professor Ashley Thompson, Hiram W. Woodward Chair in Southeast Asian Art at SOAS, University of London. The symposium will continue with a full day of panels on Thursday 12 October. The symposium will conclude on Friday 13 October with a closed workshop for symposium speakers and a limited number of additional participants, by application. The workshop will include a masterclass led by Professor Thompson and seminars on issues of gender in the discipline.

Convenors: Dr Yvonne Low, Dr Roger Nelson, Dr Clare Veal, and Dr Stephen Whiteman.
