VIENNA TAIWAN STUDIES SERIES VOLUME 3: “GENDER & INTERSECTIONALITY IN TAIWAN AND AUSTRIA” CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
Editors: Jens Damm and Astrid Lipinsky
Contributions will be part of an edited volume based on the conference of the same title at the University of Vienna, 22–24 October 2015. Please refer to the presentation topics in the conference programme draft before you submit to prevent duplication.
The book will be published as Volume 3 in the Vienna Taiwan Studies Series. The Series is an annual journal as well as a book series. The manuscripts are peer-reviewed. Intersectionality, introduced by Kimberlé Crenshaw in 1989, is a framework that should be applied to all social justice work. It is a frame recognizing the multiple aspects of identity that enrich our lives and experiences and that compound and complicate oppressions and marginalizations. The intersectional perspective underlines the fact that most oppression is multiple. Intersectional gender analysis needs to include issues of race, class, ethnicity, or age, among others. The volume applies intersectionality to gender issues in Austria (Europe) and Taiwan (Asia, Confucian culture, post-colonial society). A cross-cultural comparative approach is encouraged. Potential topics can include (not inclusive):
- intersectionality in literature and film
- ethnicities in an intersectional perspective
- applying intersectionality to historical gender issues
- gender violence
- intersectionality in law
- gender, labor and nationality issues
- migration and marriage migration(s)
- Please submit all files in word.doc or .docx format and have them proofread by a native speaker. We do not provide language correction.
- Please apply the format guidelines presented in a separate file.
As soon as possible: announcement of your contribution (title + short abstract) to firstname.lastname@example.org
30 April 2016: electronic submission of full paper (7000–10000 words) to email@example.com
VIENNA TAIWAN STUDIES SERIES VOLUME 4: “THE JAPANESE IN TAIWANESE AND CHINESE CINEMA” CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
Editors: Astrid Lipinsky (University of Vienna) & Yu-Wen Fu (National Kaohsiung University)
The volume will include contributions by Sebastian Liao, National Taiwan University and Ann Heylen, National Taiwan Normal University. Consultant: Chris Berry, King‘s College London, UK
The portrayal of Japanese people in Chinese and Taiwanese films differs widely. Whereas in Chinese films, Japanese are shown as military aggressors, they play a much more positive role in Taiwanese films. While the Japanese are part of China‘s World War II history, they are fondly remembered as colonial masters in Taiwan, and are also part of Taiwanese daily life today. The characters of Japanese in Taiwanese films are related to issues of national identity as well as to cross-straits debates. Films can be used to address questions of ethnicity, rural-urban divides, or differences between generations. The use of language – Japanese, Chinese, but also Taiwanese and diverse aboriginal languages – is also a prominent characteristic of Taiwanese film.
The editors welcome more general papers as well as ones focused on one director or even a single film. "Film" is broadly understood and includes TV dramas. Methodologies of cultural studies should be applied.
Length of paper: 9,000 – 15,000 words
Papers must be reviewed by a native speaker BEFORE submission
Format: Please adhere to the guidelines here
Deadlines and Timetable:
- 30 April 2016: submission of 300 words abstract with title and author‘s affiliation to firstname.lastname@example.org
- 15 May 2016: notification of acceptance
- 30 October 2016: submission of full text as word-document (.doc) to email@example.com
- 30 December 2016: peer review results
- 2017: publication
THE 22ND NORTH AMERICA TAIWAN STUDIES ASSOCIATION (NATSA)
University of Toronto in Toronto, Canada 10-11 June 2016
The 22nd NATSA Conference will take place in June 2016 in Canada. The theme of the conference is "Taiwan Studies in Trans* Perspectives: Transdisciplinary, Transnational, and Transcultural". NATSA welcomes scholars interested in studying Taiwan from all disciplines and explores how Taiwan—as a case, a theory, or even a method—can further transform current knowledge constructs toward an inclusive global vision.
The conference theme opens up new approaches to encourage scholars of Taiwan Studies to boldly transgress disciplinary boundaries and cull perspectives from various intellectual communities. Of all the relevant trans* themes in this conference, participants are encouraged, but not limited, to set transdisciplinarity, transnationality, and transculturalism as a point of reference. Transdiciplinarityis not only a series of cross-disciplinary activities but also a transformation among contexts and the transcendence of multiple disciplines to create innovative context-based theories. Taiwan Studies from a transdisciplinary perspective offers a lens for researchers to examine, discuss, and understand issues in multiple contexts. Transnationality both emphasizes and questions the existence of universal values or a one-size-fits-all nation-state theory. It not only digs out the diversity derived from the uniqueness of local contexts, but also tries to clarify the imbalanced power structure among the units. Transculturalism, a theoretical concept that seeks to break the boundaries between different communal, cultural, societal, and national sectors. Additionally, a new framework is established in which participants are understood not as members exclusively belonging to particular groups but as constantly crossing categorical boundaries in a search for self-identity.
Moreover, as the very first NATSA annual conference to be held in Canada, the organisers also welcome studies juxtaposing the similarities and differences between Taiwan and Canada on, but not limited to, aboriginal issues, independence movements, language and education, colonialism and post-colonialism, comparative elections, immigration, women and gender policy, LGBT+ protective legislation, and flirtations with neo-imperialism. Distanced from the world of uni- or bipolarity, the 2016 NATSA conference aims to record and catalyze the continuing and discontinuing trans* of Taiwan and Taiwan studies.
Please check NATSA website and Facebook fan-page frequently for updated information. Alternatively please contact Austin Wang, NATSA2016 Program Director (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or Eric Cheng, NATSA Secretary (email@example.com).
