deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 26, 2019

Looking for panelists for the Association of Asian Studies (AAS) annual conference in Boston, March 19-22, 2020. Below is the panel description:

This panel seeks to explore the intersections between religion and technology in Asian cultures and societies. Taking a broad view of religion, as lived and performative, the aim of this panel is to show how the theological, the technological and the anthropological intermingle to the point of indistinguishability in Asian cultures. The goal is to go beyond an instrumentalist approach wherein technology is enlisted into the service of religion and religious belief. I seek papers related (but not limited) to the following:

1) de/post colonial approach to religion, technology, secularism

What makes a man a man? How is masculinity shaped by spaces, times, languages, and cultures? How are men expected to behave in public and in private? In addition to addressing these questions, the panel would like to explore the concept of masculinity and how this is constructed by social contexts and human relationships. To this day, numerous men are profoundly impacted by adolescent experiences, peer pressure, and expectations based on “male gender roles.” This session invites contributions about literature, theater, film, and other symbolic productions in Italy as related to the complex topic of masculinity.
