This year’s conference was held in Denpasar, Bali, after three years of online conferences since COVID-19 emerged in 2020. It was a precious and wonderful experience for researchers from various regions to gather together. The joy of sharing various research results and of further developing awareness of issues through discussions was great, and new encounters took place as we deepened our friendships over Balinese cuisine at the banquet. The special theme of this year’s conference was “Glocal Culture in Modern Asia and Intersectionality: Representation, Conflict, and Symbiosis,” which was based on the 8th conference’s theme of “Glocal Culture in Modern Asia: Identity, History, and Transformation,” with the key concept of “intersectionality” newly assimilated into that theme. Listening to the stimulating presentations on a wide range of research subjects and from a broad range of regions, I was reminded that the concept of “intersectionality” is necessary in order to theorize individual experience as a complex nexus of power and resistance, a phenomenon that cannot be captured by one-sided views or simple oppositional schemes. It was a meaningful conference, and I left with many homework assignments and perspectives to assimilate in order to further my own research.
