Sex and Love in Asian Contexts: Film & History Conference: Representations
of Love in Film and Television (Call for Papers)

November 10-14, 2010

Extended Deadline: March 1, 2009

Asia has, perhaps, the richest history of cultural and commercial exchange in the world, resulting in deeply layered religious, political, and artistic traditions. In cinema, for example, sex and love often are bound up in complex rites, taboos, negotiations, honor codes, pieties, and spiritual allegiances. How do Asians themselves see or represent love? How do non-Asians see or represent love in Asian contexts? This area, comprising multiple panels, welcomes papers treating the representations of love and sex within, or from the perspective of, Asian contexts (East, West, Central, South, Southeast). Proposals for full panels should include the individual proposals for 3-4 presenters.

Please send your 200-word proposal by e-mail to the area chair:
