    We'd like to announce the first call for papers for a conference to
take place at Yale University February 25-26, 2000. Please let your
colleagues and students know!

Titled "Female Images, Female Lives," this interdisciplinary
conference's theme may encompass essentially anything to do with women
of East or Southeast Asia, or Asian-American women.  Possible topics for
individual papers or panels could include anything from the images of
women promulagated by Buddhist texts, the organization of female labour
in modern Taiwan, the impact of Confucianism on Korean women, female
subjectivity in the poetry of Li Qingzhao, women and patriarchy in India
under English rule etc.  We hope to attract graduate students and
faculty from around the nation interested in presenting scholarship in
the history, literature,artistic expression, political status and
experiences of women in both premodern and modern Asia.Obviously, these
examples do not begin to exhaust the possibilities.
	We've invited some wonderful guest speakers whose names will be
announced once they confirm with us.

you would like to be included on our email mailing list, please send the
