The general theme of the conference this year is Voiced and Voiceless in Asia. The relationship between ‘voice’ and ‘power’ is always a complex one. In the Asian context, a number of often closely intertwined issues come to mind, including such topics as the relationship between those that govern and those that are governed, the dominant social groups and minorities, those that are promoted and those that are marginalized, the mainstream culture and the subcultures, the official and the non-official, the standard and the varieties, as well as a range of means that are used to maintain or subvert such relationships, assert or acquire power, give or suppress voice, etc.
