Identities and Passions
A Roundtable Discussion on Recent Research
in Chinese Gender and Sexuality
Time: 9:15am -12:30pm, March 29, 2018
Venue: 436 Run Run Shaw Tower, Centennial Campus, The University of Hong Kong
In recent years an increasing number of disciplines have been engaged in the study of Chinese gender and sexuality, producing fresh materials and innovative insights. While we are gaining a better understanding of the processes by which Chinese men and women were shaped as gendered and sexual beings, we are also uncovering new issues and questions that seem China-specific, and some that need interdisciplinary efforts to unravel and solve. In this international symposium, we have invited some of the most active scholars working in the humanities and social sciences to reflect on current directions and challenges in the study of Chinese gender and sexuality.
