The Women and Gender in Chinese Studies Network (WAGNet), in conjunction with Institute for Chinese Studies & International Gender Studies Centre, University of Oxford, UK, invite applications from doctoral students in all disciplines and time periods of Chinese Studies to take part in the Graduate Thesis Workshop ‘Gender in Chinese Studies: Approaches and Directions’, to be held between 25-28 September 2003, Oxford, UK.
The objectives of the Workshop are to acknowledge and problematise some of the basic directions of gender-centred research as they are evolving at European universities, and also direct attention to new issues and developments as an outcome of graduate presentations. Proposed presentations should treat issues of ‘women’ and ‘gender’ as central and significant categories of analyses. Up to TWELVE young scholars working within the area of Gender/Women in Chinese Studies will be invited to take part in the Workshop and present the main thrust of their theorising and empirical investigation in the most constructive and meaningful way. Invited candidates will be expected to make presentations in a carefully structured format, with guidelines provided by the organizers designed to stimulate mutually beneficial discussion and prepare the ground for collective debate. Each presentation, to be read in advance by discussants, will be followed by comments and questions from an audience of invited senior scholars (from Oxford University and other universities).
