As the discipline of women and gender history expands and transforms, it now seeks a deeper examination of how women perceive themselves and how women, as active participants in the story of humankind, are perceived by others.

The papers presented in this panel scrutinize varying portrayals of women by revisiting women’s views and representations and employing a critical gaze at historical and literary writings, and depictions in mass media, within a larger matrix of “belonging” -as women write and perceive themselves and “othering” as women are perceived by others.

The researches featured in this panel seeks to contribute to the scholarly field of Women’s Studies, Area Studies, and Media Studies.
