What are “gender” and “cultural studies,” and how do these influential concepts shape our understanding of Asia and the Pacific? One strand of our course will consider how our ideas of male, female, and transgender translate in Asian and Pacific contexts. We will explore both historical and contemporary questions, including such possible topics as the influence of imperialism and religious conversions on gender, the relation between feminisms and nationalisms, the contemporary configurations of gender and development, and current debates about gendered violence, human rights, HIV, sex work, same-sex sexualities and gender crossing. The second strand of our course will turn to art, film, popular culture, and literature to investigate the imaginative and political work of cultural production. Possible topics include the links between culture and political power, culture in the age of capitalism, the role of globalisation, and the rise of digital cultures. We will introduce key theories and methods of inquiry through discussions of scholarly literature and visual/artistic materials from the two regions.
