International Interdisciplinary Congress on Women
Seoul Korea, June 19 - 25, 2005

Organized around the theme :

Embracing the Earth
East - West, North - South

This theme provides an excellent venue for reflecting broad range of modern and postmodern orders and global issues.

Under this theme we will explore the changes, contestations, remappings and challenges of the categories of East - West / North - South. We will see how women's lives are interwoven -- as well as separated -- by the increasing economic and political disparity between North and South or the contesting images of East and West.

The Theme also calls attention to the reconfiguration of boundaries between East and West, North and South in the emerging international conflicts since the end of the Cold War.

We hope to generate lively discussion and investigations on the diversification and complexities pertaining to the East - West / North - South boundaries, how these impinge on women's lives and the challenges they pose to feminists.

A preview of one poster exhibit
Sub Theme : 02. Gender Identity

Abstract title : Feminine Spirituality

Is women's spirituality different from men's? Are humans born equal? In our culture we are very quick to point out differences between women and men as genetic. Is that true? This poster explores the facts that have been discovered with the newest technology and leads both women and men to a better understanding of what options are open to the human spirit. We had been led to believe that our spirit was sealed by age 4 and we were stuck for life with what we were then. Studies of the brain reveal far different facts.
