N-SEA workshop "Gender and generational transformations in Southeast Asia"

Workshop in Copehagen organized by N-SEA – the Nordic Southeast Asia Network and sponsered by NOS-HS.

16 April 2015
Workshop Copenhagen

The first of two workshops on "Demographic changes in Southeast Asia: Regional and international ramifications" organized by N-SEA – the Nordic Southeast Asia Network and sponsered by NOS-HS.

Demographic changes are imbued with, and impact on, gender and generational relations, urban-rural dynamics as well as societal hierarchies locally, regionally and globally. Because of flows of people, money, and goods new political and power constellations between women and men and between young and old are shaped and notions of masculinity, femininity, and sexuality redefined. This workshop will explore three inter-related themes. These are clientelist politics, politics of care and sexual politics, which all seem to be reconfigured by demographic change. The workshop will address several questions:

  • How and to which extent do patron-client networks transform in relation to migration, improvements in educational levels and gender and generational reconfigurations?
  • How do transforming family structures impact on generational relations and notions of care?
  • How are sexual identities reconfigured and recognized, or misrecognized in particular Southeast Asian societies and how do such changes interact with larger demographic transformations?

Apart from these scholarly discussions, the workshop will also focus on methodology and fieldwork in South East Asia and invite papers and presentations from graduate students from across the Nordic countries.

Invited keynote speakers:

  • Ian Wilson, Murdoch University, Perth
  • Sarah Turner, McGill University, Montreal
