Gender and Sexuality in East Asia – Cultural Studies and Social Science Perspectives


June 9, 2020 – ongoing

Organization: Barbara Geilhorn, Nora Kottmann

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 later followed by a DIJ forum and a film screening and subsequent talk with the producer and one protagonist. 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.

Join us to discuss these issues with internationally established scholars!

Forthcoming, date t.b.a., Masculinity and Bodyweight Control in Contemporary Japan (Genaro Castro Vázquez, Kansai Gaidai University) and Urged to Shine: Japanese Women Maneuvering in the Time of Postfeminism (Hiroko Tanaka, Nagoya University), DIJ Forum
