Event Description

Full Description:
On the 30th of April, the Asia-Pacific Cluster for Chinese Entrepreneurial Studies at the University of Queensland will host a one-day workshop the academic themes of which will be everyday consumption and ‘modern girl’. Taking place at the Forgan Smith Building, Room E344, this workshop will invite promising young scholars and established academics from the University of Queensland as well as other institutions of higher learning. In the first two hours, invited guests will deliver talks the concentration of which will be on the themes of the workshop as well as topics ranging from material culture methodology and the origins of department stores. In the final hour, guests will deliver presentations which will be based on their reviews of works by sociologists such as Erving Goffman and Michel de Certeau.
This workshop will be greatly benefited from the involvement of participants in the Woman and Power Reading Group due to aligned research interests of academics involved. Discussions involving the emergence of the so-called modern girl will be incomplete in the absence of analyses focusing on how women could, in spite of unfair and often patriarchal expectations, ascend to positions of authority in the modern world. To this end, scholars at UQ interested in how women could obtain power in modern societies are more than welcome to attend this workshop.
