We regret that we have had to cancel this lecture.

The paper explores how the Okinawan female body has been appropriated not only as a trope of the relationship between subjugated Okinawa and its ruler, mainland Japan, but also as a site where intricate issues of discrimination, gender, power and Okinawan identity converge.
