Welcome to the Collective on Gender, Religion and the Arts of Asia! 


Our purpose is to facilitate the interchange of ideas across these three disciplines with respect to issues like the visual representation of gender, women and their role in artmaking, and the status of the body in the history of Asian art. To this end, we intend to organize regular meetings in the form of conferences and workshops in order to share and keep pace with scholarly contributions in these lively fields.

We are delighted to host our first conference on Zoom this June, a two-day event entitled “Gender and Buddhist Art in Asia: Embodiment, Patronage and the Sacred.” Please find additional information on the conference and a link to register here.  Lastly, as an open collective, we invite all students, researchers, and other interested persons to join and participate in future programming initiatives!
