Asian Feminist Epistemologies: Theory and Embodiment

Fissuring, doubling, and vanishing: The metaphors of feminisms are evocative of the visual, acoustic, and corporeal intensities permeating feminist interventions in political movement, philosophy, historiography, and film and media theory. Rather than a linear history of feminism in Asia, this seminar probes the changing "subject" of feminism(s) that is shaped by the geopolitical imaginaries of Asia and the West in the twentieth century. Rehearsing feminist futures across continents, through corporealized and spectral bodies, within and beyond socialism and capitalism, readings excavate feminist knowledge and the articulation difference.
