Talk Why do women leave their homes? - The feminization of global migration and politics of care
Women increasingly make up a greater share of migrants. Why does the phenomenon of feminization of migration occur, what do women hope to achieve by leaving their homes, and what problems do they seek to solve? Through the voices of migrant women, we seek to imagine social solidarity centered around the idea of care.

Join the yokai study group, “Dolgoji Yokai Studies,” as they discuss the stories of women monsters that they have discovered over their work on “Baekgwijuhaeng: yeoseong goemul haengjin” (Day Parade of Hundred Demons: A March of Women Monsters). The discussion focuses on the characteristics and qualifications of monsters, particularly “women monsters,” and what we, women, share with the monsters. Afterward, we imagine a fictional women monster yet to be recorded in the compendium and create our own archive of women monsters.

Talk Labor and Resistance in East Asian Diasporas
On the dark side of the 21st Century capitalism lies the supernational exploitation of workers toward lower wages and the “race to the bottom.” But even as new lives and labor emerge, resistance blooms. East Asia’s future will change with the diasporas’ solidarity and resistance.
