Feminist Engagement with Women* in China



The Women's Studies Mst at the University of Oxford are pleased to invite you to panel discussion on Feminist Engagement with Women* in China. Joining us will be three guest speakers, Dr Maria Jaschok (Senior Research Associate of the Contemporary China Studies Programme, Oxford School of Global & Area Studies), Ling Tang (DPhil Candidate in Oriental Studies (Contemporary Chinese Studies)) and Yun Yun Zhou (DPhil Candidate in Oriental Studies (Contemporary Chinese Studies)). The panel will discuss their research on women in China, ranging from non-heterosexual family formations, to business women and the sexualised nature of guanxi, to cross-cultural research concerns regarding the privileging of knowledge, power and resources. The speakers will address their own positionalities as well as the methodological difficulties they have faced in their research.


This event will be held in the Colin Matthew Room in Radcliffe Humanities, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Woodstock Rd, Oxford OX2 6GG. The room is fully accessible, here is further information for those with access needs: https://www.accessguide.ox.ac.uk/radcliffe-humanities
