Tenth International Women in Asia Conference (WIA 2010), Sep 2010
ANU College of Asia and the Pacific (CAP), ANU, Canberra, Australia.

"Crisis, Agency, and Change, 29 September -- 1 October 2010, ANU College of Asia and the Pacific, The Australian National University, Canberra.
The WIA conferences have been held regularly since 1981 and are  supported by the Women's Forum of the Asian Studies Association of  Australia [http://asaa.asn.au/ - ed.]. These are international 
conferences, with attendees from throughout Australia and the Asian  regions, including those who are working on or in the region. 
Participants include academics and students; representatives of NGOs and other organisations involved in aid and development; artists and performers; and interested members of the general public. The conference provides excellent opportunities for networking and getting to know others in the field.
The theme for the 2010 conference - the tenth anniversary WIA  conference - is Crisis, Agency, and Change.
They hope that this will stimulate discussion across disciplines and across regions on the impact of crises, whether personal or collective, on women; on the representation of women and crisis; and on women's agency, actions, and activism in response to crisis and in efforts to achieve change.

Call for Papers: Contributions are invited from a broad range of participants from various disciplines.
