On September 4-6, 2013 Asian Modernities and Traditions will host the first conference within the project Women, Gender, and Sexuality in Asian Popular Music of the 20th Century. The Voices of Asian Modernities project is a consortium between Leiden University, Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies (KITLV), and University of Pittsburgh. We now welcome papers that properly historicize the artistic sounds, lyrical texts, visual images, and social lives of female performers in Asian popular music of the 20th century. What was the relationship between women and modern media in different parts of Asia in the 20th century? What forms did women’s voices take in popular music?
Please submit your abstract of 750 words and CV of 350 words via the conference website before May 1st. Full papers selected for participation are due no later than July 15th, 2013.
Invited and selected papers will be entitled to travel and accommodation refunding.
A selection of papers of the Leiden and Pittsburgh conferences will serve as materials for an edited volume that is due to be published in 2015.
