Lecture Series: Gender and Sexuality in East Asia – Cultural Studies and Social Science Perspectives
This lecture series sets out to explore ‘Gender and Sexuality in East Asia’ from a cultural studies and social science perspective. It is structured as a set of three online lectures to be followed by a DIJ Forum and a film screening and talk with the producer and one protagonist (dates t.b.c.). Topics that will be addressed are: Sexualities and migration, ‘new’ masculinities, ‘new’ life courses for women, gender constructions in film and literature, bodies and postfeminism.
