We are looking for people interested in joining a panel on gender and resistance in East Asia. Of particular interest is forming an interdisciplinary panel to meet the crossing borders format of the AAS for the annual meeting. There would have to be some agreement on what constituted gender for all of the panel participants, but resistance as used for this panel may be broadly construed to include definitions such as disease or health (e.g. women in East Asia and AIDS, suicide) or marital issues (divorce, free choice, sexual orientation) or war (historical periods of resistance, acts of aggression, colonialism, conquest). So far, we have two political scientists (one looking contemporarily at China, the other historically at Hong Kong). If you have creative ideas about choosing a theme (like "what constitutes resistance?" or "how does gender impact women's resistance to issues or events like...") and holding a roundtable (rather than presenting papers) or a panel discussion on this theme (and how your work speaks to this theme), these would be welcomed. Please contact Lisa Fischler (assistant professor of Political Science at Moravian College) by email. The other organizer of this panel is Sharon Wesoky (assistant professor of political science at Allegheny College).
