Description: The Illinois/Indiana East Asia National Resource Center Consortium (IL/IN East Asia NRC) is pleased to announce its fourth annual IL/IN National Dissertation Workshop in the field of gender and sexuality. The workshop will be held June 2-3, 2010 on the campus of Indiana University Bloomington. Doctoral students in the humanities and the social sciences whose dissertation projects concern gender and sexuality in modern East Asia are invited to apply. Areas of interest include anthropology, literature, history, sociology, gender studies, and cultural studies, among others. The workshop is designed to enable students just beginning work on their dissertations, as well as those farther along, to engage in intensive discussions of their own and each other’s projects. Possibilities for continuing networks among interested students and faculty will also be explored. The workshop will be limited to eight participants, and the cost of the workshop, some meals, and two nights’ lodging will be covered by the IL/IN East Asia NRC.

The workshop will be led by a team of multidisciplinary faculty covering the areas of China, Japan, and Korea: Nancy Abelmann, Associate Vice Chancellor for Research—Humanities, Arts, and Related Fields; Harry E. Preble Professor of Anthropology, Asian American Studies, East Asian Languages and Cultures, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; Sara Friedman, Associate Professor of Anthropology and Gender Studies, Indiana University Bloomington; and Michiko Suzuki, Assistant Professor of East Asian Languages and Cultures, Indiana University Bloomington.

Applicants must be enrolled full-time in a doctoral program and must have drafted a dissertation research proposal, although they need not have advanced to candidacy. Those in the early phases of writing are also encouraged to apply. In order to prepare the ground for a productive exchange, participants must come to the workshop having read and prepared comments on the other participants’ writing samples.

The application deadline is March 1. Application materials consist of two items: (1) a current CV and (2) a 4-6-page double-spaced dissertation proposal (including a description of the specific issues being addressed, the intellectual approach, and the materials being studied). Applications should be submitted by e-mail attachment to easc@indiana.edu. Applicants will be informed whether or not they have been selected for the workshop by early April.

Recurrence: This event recurs every day from Wednesday June 02, 2010 08:30 AM until Thursday June 03, 2010.
