CFP: Seeking panelists for AAS 2016: Gender, Medicine, and Empire in Asia (Seattle, March 2016)

I am seeking fellow panelists for a session on "Gender, Medicine, and Empire in Asia" for the Association for Asian Studies annual meeting in Seattle during March 2016. Though I am open to papers focusing on a variety of time periods, locales, and methodologies, the panel will speak to the ways in which these three categories have structured power relations intrinsic to historical developments throughout Asia, and thus, the utility of an approach that simultaneously engages with the historiographies of gender, medicine, and empire.
