    An international symposium hosted by the Power Institute, University of Sydney, Australia, 11–13 October 2017

    Studies focused on gender in Southeast Asian societies have emerged, in recent decades, in approximate concurrence with the development of regionally focused Southeast Asian art histories. The founding premise of this international symposium is that there has hitherto been insufficient discursive intersection between these two fields.
