Panel Discussion
Asian American Women, Feminism, and the Arts
Monday, March 9, 2009

Asian American Women, Feminism, and the Arts brings together a range of feminists -- an author, a visual artist, and a performance artist -- in a panel discussion moderated by Minoo Moallem, focused on the dynamics of gender, race, and activism. How does one claim and exercise one's power as a woman? How is that expressed in art? How does one adapt to, challenge, or find inspiration in the framework of a traditional society? Is feminism fundamentally incompatible with traditional Asian culture? What does post-feminism mean, especially in an Asian American context? How do gender and sexuality play a role in this definition?

Speakers: Minoo Moallem (moderator) Professor, Gender and Women's Studies, UC Berkeley; Shailja Patel, poet, performer, and playwright; Cynthia Tom, President, Asian American Women's Art Association, Curator, "A Place of Her Own," de Young Musuem; and Karen Tei Yamashita, author, Professor of Literature and Creative Writing, University of California, Santa Cruz.

Co-sponsored by the Asian American Women's Art Association, Chinese Culture Center, Hyphen magazine, Kearny Street Workshop, Mills College, Oakland Asian Cultural Center, San Francisco State University-Departme nt of Asian American Studies, UC Berkeley-Department of Gender and Women's Studies, and USF Center for the Pacific Rim.
