The Agency Of Women In Asia

This book explores the meanings and operation of agency exercised by women in various cultures and contexts in Asia. It examines how and under what conditions women in Asia express themselves. It analyzes women's capacity for action, how women take action, and how women sometimes resist the discourses and conditions that shape their lives. The book also discusses how this agency can be interpreted and assessed. The contributors to this book examine particular women's practice and expression in specific contexts: "parasite singles"-especially unmarried young women-in Japan, whose unconventional lifestyles seem to effect a subversion of the expected female roles of daughters, mothers, and wives; Indonesian women employed as domestic workers in Singapore; the women from South Korea and the Philippines who have married Japanese men through the international marriage business system; female Muslim healers in Lombok who work against fate; rural Balinese women who have their babies in hospitals; and female performers and performances in contemporary Indonesian theatre.

Practice-as-Research: In Performance and Screen presents a thoroughgoing exploration of the major fissures of established knowledge created by a new trans-disciplinary, worldwide project for the twenty-first century. Focussing on the most fleeting and yet pervasive practices of the performance and screen arts, it both documents and analyses the practical-theoretical integration of hands-on creative and scholarly methods of research. Through an innovative combination of manuscript, catalogue and digital multi-media formats, it aims to embody the principles of performance and screen practice-as-research in its structure and design – making book pages and DVD images mutually illuminating. With over fifty practitioner-researcher contributors, Practice-as-Research constitutes the most comprehensive presentation of this sometimes controversial and frequently fresh way of doing things with an imaginative convergence of artistic and scholarly processes.
