  • 1.  Panel on Protest

    Posted 10-17-2023 11:19 AM

    Hi, I am looking for others interested in joining a panel on protest movements in Asia. I hope the topic is broad enough to attract some interest! 

    This would join a paper co-authored by Berta Tilman from Timor-Leste and myself, which examines gendered expressions of power in Timor-Leste, and resistance to them, through the lens of student protest movements at the National University of Timor Lorosa'e. We would love to connect with cases in other countries.

    Hi David, 

    This is Rukmini. I am working on a sub-national movement led by students in the north-eastern part of India during the 1970's. I am looking at the visual representation of this movement and its implications on construction of identities. I will be happy to provide you with details. Do let me know if this is acceptable for your panel.

    You can contact me at kakotyrukmini@yahoo.com or rkakoty@gitam.edu.  

    Thank you.

    Hi David,

    My name is Aninda. I am working with Muhammad Fajar on research covering green youth movements in Indonesia. For this paper, we look mainly at the tension in the utopianism of such groups and its implication on climate actions. Please let me know if this is something that would fit the panel objectives.

    Feel free to reach me at aninda.dewayanti@outlook.com.

    Hi David, 

    My name is Angie Tran, and I teach global studies and political economy at California State University, Monterey Bay (USA). 

    Is your panel still open for another paper on resistance? My paper is entitled "The Limits of Agency Against Structural Violence: Vietnamese Domestic Workers in Saudi Arabia and Beyond." Here is the abstract: 

    I analyze the impacts of structural violence of the bilateral labor agreement (BLA) between Vietnam and Saudi Arabia and explore how the Vietnamese domestic women workers (of different ethnic groups) in Saudi Arabia resist the precarious conditions that are systematically imposed on them by the BLA, their forms of mobility, agency, strategies of contestation and the limits they face. I employ intersectional methodology, bringing in race/ethnicity, class and gender into the analysis, and using interview data with these women workers, while they were in Saudi Arabia and after they returned to Vietnam and elsewhere.

    Below is my contact information. Please let me know since the deadline is today, 8 November 2023! Thank you, Angie
