        THE FUTURE OF ASIAN FEMINISMS

        CONFRONTING FUNDAMENTALISMS, CONFLICT AND NEOLIBERALISM



        SECOND CONFERENCE KARTINI NETWORK

        BALI INDONESIA 2-5 November 2008



        CALL FOR PAPERS



        Kartini Network Co-ordinator Nursyahbani Katjasungkana



        Conference theme and rationale

        Following the successful First Kartini Conference in Dalian, China, in
         2004
        this second Kartini conference will discuss the future of Asian
         feminisms
        assessing past experiences and charting new paths. One of the major
         foci will
        be successes or failures of legal campaigns in specific contexts. 
         Most Asian countries are affected by various
        forms of economic restructuring. These processes are often played out
         on
        women's bodies as a battleground. Cuts in social spending affecting
         budgets on
        health and education due to processes of liberalization and structural
        adjustment have important consequences for women – both in relation
         to demands
        on their time, and in relation to their health and educational levels.
         Massive
        waves of migration in the region expose millions of women migrant
         workers to
        specific dangers, ranging from sexual abuse to exploitation. In many
         countries
        the economic and social pressures, coupled with resentment against what
         is
        perceived as the aggression of the US give rise to various forms of
         fundamentalisms.
        Thus the region is characterized by an unprecedented growth of
         fundamentalisms,
        increasing economic insecurities, due to neo-liberal globalization and
         SAPs, as
        well as external and internal conflicts, wars and other forms of
         aggression. These
        crises are gendered and affect women in multiple ways. As a result most
         Asian
        countries are recording an increase in sexual violence against women in
         the
        public and in the private sphere, which is exacerbated by dominant
         gender
        regimes based on specific

         forms of heteronormativity.

        Participants will be invited to present papers or poster presentation
         to the
        following five panels:



        1. Women's and Gender Studies in Asia:
        Historical Perspective and Future Challenges

        The experiences of institutionalization of women's and gender studies
         in Asia
        have diverse origins and manifestations, depending on the specific
         local social
        and academic environments. Such environments do affect the histories
         and
        politics related to the institutionalization of Women's/Gender Studies,
         the
        configurations of areas of concern, its disciplinary emphasis and its
        inter-disciplinary ramifications (consequence) as well as the extent to
         which
        the dialectical relationship between the women's movements and
         Women's/Gender
        Studies is maintained and fostered. These factors have implications for
         the
        mobilization of resources and the sustainability of Women's/Gender
         Studies
        programmes. Key issues in such environments are the role of women's
         movements, and
        its relationship with the state, education policy and the co-operation
         with
        partners.

        Papers will be invited that will discuss the role of women's movements,
        and its relationship with the state, education policy and the
         co-operation with
        partners. Other issues to be discussed are the career trajectories of
         its
        adherents, and the `beneficiaries' of Women's/Gender Studies
         programmes.
        Who get in- or excluded? Whose experiences are considered valid for
         research
        and analysis? Dependent on specific features of each country the choice
         of
        labels such as `women', `gender' and `feminism' is embedded in
         institutional
        politics and has consequences on the configuration of this field of
         studies. Another
        theme will be to provide an understanding of these experiences and a
         comparison
        between them, to analyse structural similarities and differences that
         explain
        the paths taken by each institution,

        including the tension between autonomy and mainstreaming as
        strategies and the context that is shaping them. The participants will
         also
        delineate (explain) and compare challenging issues for the future and
         discuss
        how collaborative efforts may contribute to overcoming the challenges
        indicated.



        2. Fundamentalisms and Feminisms

        For the last decades it has become clear that religions have been used
         for
        political and economic purposes. The rise of Islamic fundamentalism is
         a case
        in point. Especially after the attacks on the World Trade Centre,
         global
        attention has been focused on international terrorism linked to Islamic
        fundamentalism. The world's superpowers use this discourse to exercise
         their
        political and economic control particularly over Islamic countries.
         This
        discourse is interpreted as arrogance in many parts of the world and as
         a form
        of `reverse' political and economic fundamentalism. This has created a
         backlash in
        the form of rising male-centric (Muslim and Hindu) fundamentalism which
        presents itself as the challenge to the notion of the all-powerful
         western,
        patriarchal Christian world. This process strengthens the growth of
         identity politics based on religion and
        ethnicity while at the same time the space in which women's movements
         operate
        is reduced. This is not only caused by a male chauvinist interpretation
        of Islam which stress male control over women's sexuality but also
         because of
        the poverty caused by the political and economic developments
         associated with
        this process.

        The deconstruction of politicized religion is a scholarly undertaking
         as well
        as a form of political activism that should be done both by political
         analysts
        and by scholars of religious history as well as by feminist activists.
         In Asia
        Islam, Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism and Christianity are among the
         most
        important religions being practiced. Various sects have also numerous
         adherents,
        while in

          various regions much older
        forms of `nature-centered' or animistic religions are being practiced.
        In all these traditions much gender analysis needs to de done.

        Papers may address the following
        aspects:

        Context/History/Text: the
        1) emergence of specific fundamentalist movements and the crisis of
         modernity,
        2) identifying the configuration of local and global political, social,
        economic and other forces and 3) the constituencies (people, voter)
         which
        sustain these movements.

        Feminisms
        and Fundamentalisms: these two movements have been posed as 
         homogenous antinomies particularly given the
        fundamentalist agenda to re-assert control over women's bodies, minds
         and
        public spaces.

        Strategies and struggles against fundamentalisms intersect with
         questions
        around citizenship, secularism and reform within religion.



        3. Conflicts And Violence

        The continuum between violence against women in the home and in the
         community,
        with forms of violence in society as well as with armed conflict, has
         been
        identified as an area of critical importance by many feminist scholars.
         In
        analysing conflict papers may address a multiplicity of sites: class,
         caste and
        ethnicity based forms of conflict, present-day identity-based conflicts
         as well
        as religious/communal/regional ones. The linkage between these and
        gendered forms of violence is of key concern

        The area of sexual politics and violence against women have
         particularities in
        the Asian context both on the national level as in the sphere of
         community and
        family relations. Rape is a traumatizing event everywhere, but when it
         is
        compounded by notions of honour and religious purity its after effects
         may be
        worse. Issues such as domestic violence, including dowry death or
         marital rape
        have to be elevated out of the culture of silence in which they are
         embedded
        into the public discourse. Certain issues are relevant mainly in a
         particular
        national context, others have more regional connotations, 

        such as trafficking in women and children. Silence masks hegemonic
        patriarchal power, hides violence, creates consensus, constructs
         complicity.
        That which is not spoken about can also not be contested.

        Research on the impact of conflicts on women, including violations of
         women's
        rights and brutal acts of violence committed against women during
         conflict in
        the Asian region already exists in many cases. Papers are invited that
         address
        the conceptual work that can embark on comparative analysis of the
         nature of
        violence, its sources, impact of cultural and other differences and
        similarities that bear out the patriarchal nature of war and conflict.



        4. Sexuality

        Within the Asian region, issues related to sexuality have emerged in
        significant ways in recent years. A number of regional and
         international
        developments – such as the heightened attention of the media, gay and
         lesbian
        movements, struggles and demands of sex workers, and the HIV/AIDS
         agendas – are
        all playing a role in this new visibility. These are different from
         prior
        discourses concerning the control of women's bodies and desire and are
         posing
        new challenges to women's movements and Women's/Gender Studies.
         Marginalised
        and stigmatized groups have been brought center stage. As a result,
         normative
        institutions for the regulation of sexuality have been questioned and
         even
        destabilized.  Papers are invited that
        address any of the above issues. They may link the issue of the control
         and
        abuse of women's sexuality with wider processes of sexual violence,
         conflict
        and war and the erosion of livelihoods. Or they may address the
         simultaneous
        emergence of issues of sexual freedom, the expression of parallel
         sexualities,
        demands for decriminalization of stigmatized sexual practices, and the
         public
        acceptance of sexual rights.  Another
        theme is research on traditional, folk and oral traditions to excavate
         the liberatory
        aspects of non-normative sexual identities and 


        parallel sexual practices that have existed within the Asian socio
        cultural context. Lastly they may address strategies to deal with
         violence that
        homosexual minorities and other gender identities faced, which involves
         the
        state and non state actors groups.



        5. Poverty, Vulnerability and Livelihoods

        Everywhere in Asia, women's and men's livelihoods today are affected by
         the
        introduction of new technologies, trade policies and the emergence of
         new
        alliances and interests seeking to secure a position in the world
         market. They
        respond differently to agricultural intensification, massive resource
        extraction and increasing industrialisation. The inter-relationship
         between
        gender, rural transformations, natural resource use is defined by the
         ways in
        which the changing divisions of labour, access to and control of
         resources,
        knowledge and skills are organised among rural women and men. Rapid
        deterioration of natural resources have prompted women and men to seek
        employment elsewhere. Women usually find themselves in situations of
        vulnerability as they enter into gender-segregated occupations, the
         terms of
        which they have very little control over. Patterns of women's
         vulnerability
        differ according to age, level of education, marital coping status and
        ethnicity. Older and married women remain in the countryside and have
         little
        access to male labour for agricultural production and thus their
         households
        suffer the effects of food insecurity. Younger women who move to urban
         areas
        are, in turn, absorbed by low-paid factory work, sex work and domestic
         work
        almost under slave-like conditions, particularly in commercial sex work
         or
        unpaid `sex/affective' culturally camouflaged under marital union but
         without
        its legal status.

        Papers may address the diversity of coping strategies for
         self-protection and
        exploration of alternative livelihoods. This includes those involved in
         sex
        work, as they are stigmatised, cannot

         effectively exit and continue
        to engage in the sex industry for livelihood, although their position
         may
        change from providing sexual service to other affiliated services. A
         major
        issue is to identify and to compare ways in which women can benefit
         from
        "globalization" and in what ways can this be ensured.



        The Kartini Network

        Kartini, the Asian – European Network for Women's and Gender Studies,
         was
        founded in 2000. Kartini aims to promote women's/gender studies in
         Asia,
        bringing together academics and activists working in this field. It has
         a
        feminist perspective focusing on the intersectionality of gender with
         other
        axes of difference (caste, class, ethnicity and race) and promoting
         gender
        justice and economic justice. It fosters cooperation between academics
         and
        activists i.e. between women's/gender studies, women's movements and
        development organizations within the Asian region and with a few
         selected
        strategic partners in non-Asian countries. The
        Kartini network focuses on five themes: women's studies,
         fundamentalisms,
        sexuality, livelihood and conflict resolution. It sees these themes as
        interlinked. Kartini aims to strengthen south-south cooperation,
         including at
        the sub-regional level, building on the available regional expertise,
         both
        within academia, research institutes and gender-based NGO's.



        Structure of the conference

        the structure of the conference will be thus that participants will be
         enabled
        to attend work of other panels than those in which they present
         themselves, so
        as to maximize the forum for inter-Asian dialogue. Comparative papers
         will be
        encouraged and the panels themselves will be set up in such a way that
         the
        potential for comparative work is fully utilized.

        Beside formal paper and poster presentations roundtable discussions
         will be
        held; films will be shown and other forms of presentations will be
         encouraged.
        Activists will be specifically invited to discuss

         their advocacy plans. Themes
        will prepare themselves beforehand through their own constituencies and
         in
        agenda-setting preparatory

        meetings.  Other networks will be invited
        to share their meetings with the conference, such as the Sangat
         network. Themes
        will also hold events prior to or after the conference, for their own
        activities.
