This small workshop, sponsored by the Asia Pacific Futures Research Network (APFRN), CAPSTRANS and the Faculty of Arts at the University of Wollongong, will bring together for the first time established scholars, Early Career Researchers, postgraduates and community members and activists to discuss issues related to gender, occupation and intervention. The renowned activist on issues related to women and the military, Takazato Suzuyo, of the group Okinawa Women Act Against Military Violence, will be a keynote speaker. Selected presenters may have the opportunity to publish their work in an edited book of papers and/or a special edition of the peer-reviewed e-journal PORTAL Journal of Multidisciplinary International Studies in late 2010. There are a few competitive places for sponsored positions (travel within Australia only and accommodation for 2 nights) for postgraduates and ECRs.
