CALL FOR PAPERS | 12th Singapore Graduate Forum on Southeast Asian Studies, 3 March 2017

CALL FOR PAPERS DEADLINE: 3 MARCH 2017

This forum is organised by the Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore; with funding support from the Henry Luce Foundation, USA.

The Asia Research Institute (ARI) of the National University of Singapore (NUS) invites applications from graduate (master’s and PhD) students who are engaged in research on Southeast Asia to attend the 12th Singapore Graduate Forum on Southeast Asian Studies on 24-28 July 2017.

This five-day forum, the twelve of an annual series of forums for graduate students who work on Southeast Asia, will be organised thematically. Themes broadly reflect (though not limited to) the core research strengths of the Asia Research Institute, including the Asian dynamics of religion, politics, economy, gender, culture, language, migration, urbanism, science and technology, population and social change. Keynotes will be delivered by professors Sunil Amrith (Harvard University), Tom Boellstorff (University of California) and Lily Kong (Singapore Management University).

The first two days of the Forum will be dedicated to Skills Based Sessions during which senior scholars will address various topics such as:

How to get published in peer-reviewed journals,
How to apply for international grants,
How to deal with negative reviews,
Besides that there will be sessions on various research methodologies, English academic writing and planning career trajectories.

During the final three days, graduate students will be giving the opportunity to present their work in sessions organized thematically. Graduate students working on topics related to Southeast Asia are invited to submit abstracts based either on work in progress that is at an advanced stage (i.e. already completed data collection and analysis), or on completed work. NUS students are encouraged to take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity to interact and exchange ideas with students from ASEAN as well as those from other regions whose interests focus on Southeast Asia.

Partial or full funding may be available for students whose proposals have been selected. Funding will cover board and lodging for the duration of the five-day forum, and a contribution towards air travel to Singapore by the most economical means.

This event coincides with the Asian Graduate Student Fellowship Programme 2017, which brings some 25 graduate students to ARI for a four/six-week period. These students will also participate in the Graduate Forum.
SUBMISSION OF PAPER PROPOSAL

Graduate students should submit a 300-400 words abstract of their proposed paper to Ms Tay Minghua at minghua.tay@nus.edu.sg no later than 3 March 2017. Please use the application form provided. The abstract should clarify the substantive issues which your paper will address and be firmly grounded in your own research project. Please include information on objectives, methods, and findings, as well as explain the original contribution the research makes to the field of study. One letter of recommendation from a supervisor should also be forwarded along with your form by the same date.

Successful applicants will be notified by early April 2017. Those selected will have to submit full-length papers, of around 4,000-5,000 words in length, by 15 July 2017.

Projection de deux films: vendredi 2 décembre de 14h à 17h (Amphithéâtre Charve – Campus Saint-Charles – Marseille) par Jean Baffie (IrAsia), Alice Vittrant (DDL/AMU/IrAsia) et Alexandra de Mersan (CASE/Inalco)

Dans le cadre du Séminaire de l’IrAsia (Institut de recherches asiatiques),deux films (30’) consacrés à deux grands chercheurs en Sciences Humaines en Asie du Sud-Est, Denise Bernot (linguiste) et Georges Condominas (ethnologue) seront présentés le vendredi 2 décembre de 14h à 17h (Amphithéâtre Charve – Campus Saint-Charles – Marseille) par Jean Baffie (IrAsia), Alice Vittrant (DDL/AMU/IrAsia) et Alexandra de Mersan (CASE/Inalco)
• « Georges Condominas, conversations », film de Jean Baffie, réalisé par Rosemarie Cano
Il s’agit d’un hommage à Georges Condominas, l’ethnologue français de l’Asie du Sud-Est qui a le plus influencé la 2ème moitié du XX siècle. Ce film a été réalisé à l’occasion de la commémoration du 1er anniversaire de sa disparition. A travers le montage d’archives d’entretiens filmé et la mise en croquis de son œuvre majeure ce documentaire traite de la meilleurs façon pour mener une enquête de terrain et révèle une personnalité hors du commun mais infiniment attachante.
• « Denise Bernot : langues, savoirs et savoir-faire de Birmanie » film de Alice Vittrant et Alexandra de Mersan, réalisé par Céline Ferlita et Maryline Leduc (Grand prix du festival du film de chercheur à Nancy, juin 2016)
Fondatrice de la chaire de birman aux « Langues’ O » (INALCO-Paris) au début des années 1960, elle y assura l’enseignement de la langue et la civilisation birmanes jusqu’en 1990. De ses premiers séjours chez les Marmas, dans les Chittagong HillTracks où elle séjourna avec son mari Lucien Bernot (Ethnologue au Collège de France), elle garda le goût du terrain, du travail en immersion.  C’était au temps où l’on parlait encore de Pakistan oriental…
Auteur d’une thèse sur ‘Le Prédicat en birman parlé’ publiée en 1985, de nombreux articles sur la phonologie de cette langue, mais aussi sur des dialectes proches, Denise Bernot est surtout connue en Birmanie, et dans le petit monde de la birmanologie, pour son extraordinaire dictionnaire bilingue (Birman-Français) en quinze volumes, trésor de terminologie botanique parsemé de ses croquis exquis.
Linguiste, Denise l’était incontestablement. Mais elle était aussi traductrice, ethnologue, anthropologue, s’intéressant autant à la langue qu’aux savoirs et aux savoir-faire. Forte de cette pluridisciplinarité, elle a su créer, avec son mari, une réelle communauté de chercheurs, de birmanologues en France.

LE SOMMEIL D’OR: documentaire Davy Chou, Mercredi 2 novembre à 18h – Amphi Buffon

Entrée gratuite sur réservation

Le Sommeil d’or relate une histoire inconnue : la naissance et la destruction du cinéma cambodgien, depuis le premier film réalisé en 1960 jusqu’à l’arrivée des Khmers Rouges en 1975.
Durant 15 ans, le cinéma cambodgien a connu une ascension considérable : il a produit environ 400 films. Lorsque les Khmers Rouges prennent le pouvoir, le cinéma est interdit, les salles sont fermées et les bobines de films laissées à l’abandon. Comptant parmi les nombreux « ennemis du peuple », la plupart des cinéastes et des acteurs sont tués. Aujourd’hui, il ne reste plus de cette histoire qu’une poignée de films, quelques survivants et de nombreux souvenirs.
À travers le témoignage de ces survivants et l’exploration des anciens lieux de cinéma, Davy Chou tente de faire revivre la mythologie de cette cinématographie engloutie.



Prélude : LE DOUDOU de Nicolas Yoeurp (20’)
Film réalisé dans le cadre de l’atelier « Objets d’histoires, histoires d’objets » dirigé par Vladimir Léon (L3 2013-2014), avec le concours de Julie Fayant, Élisa Levassort et Mégane Verdier
Le trouble que suscite chez le réalisateur le fait d’être encore attaché à son doudou l’engage à questionner ses parents, immigrés sino-cambodgiens dont l’histoire lui est restée jusqu’ici inconnue…

Environment Cluster Seminar: Rubber and Land-cover and Land-use Change in Mainland Southeast Asia, 17 Jan, National University of Singapore (NUS)

The mountainous region of mainland Southeast Asia (MMSEA) harbors a wealth of natural resources, including globally important forests, multiple plant and animal species, and the headwaters of major rivers. For centuries, farmers in this region practiced diverse systems of shifting cultivation that produced a unique landscape mosaic combining small agricultural plots with secondary forests. Over the last few decades national policies have driven the expansion and upgrading of road, electricity, and telecommunication networks, and the commoditization of agriculture. Attracted by the opportunity to convert traditional farming areas into high-value commercial operations, outside entrepreneurs, corporations, and governments have sought to gain control of land in the region through schemes ranging from joint ventures with local farmers to outright dispossession. Some farmers have enhanced their income by switching to the intensive production of cash crops. Others have been forced into contracts with unfavorable terms or have lost their land entirely. While more intense agricultural production may pose a threat to fragile local environments, it is not possible to turn back the clock. Rubber plantations, in particular, have proven highly profitable. This talk will review findings from a recent NASA funded project that mapped land-cover change in MMSEA more accurately than had been previously accomplished. The presentation will also discuss land, income and labor implications of these changes at study sites in Northeast Cambodia and Southern Laos. Finally, the talk will discuss potential implications of the fall in rubber prices for land-cover change.

Beyond Nature and Culture of Modern Thai Water Engineering. The Ontology of Infrastructure, Friday, December 16, 2016

 

Jakkrit Sangkhamanee (CSDS, Faculty of Political Science, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Chulalongkorn University)

The talk will explore Thailand’s Royal Irrigation Department Museum for Heavy Engineering where the works and lives of engineers are displayed and narrated and their machines exhibited. Through the museum walk-through, Jakkrit Sangkhamanee will analyze the mutual constitution and historical transformation of the amphibious assemblage that makes up Thai water engineering. In some ways, the  human and non-human hybridity depicted in the museum exceeds the binary of nature and culture proposed by Philippe Descola is his critical work Beyond Nature and Culture. Tracing the complex interrelation of engineers, landscapes, bureaucracy, statecraft and myth depicted in the exhibits, the analysis elicits the museum as a particular, and peculiar, parliament of things that articulates the amodern characteristics of the Thai water engineering assemblage.

Artist Spends Her Days On Bridges To Photograph Street Vendors In Vietnam

Vietnam-based photographer Loes Heerink was fascinated by the lives of local street vendors in the country’s capital city of Hanoi. But she was struggling to find the right angle that portrays her subjects in the way she sees them – vibrant and constantly on the move. Surprisingly, the answer to that question was waiting for her on the many bridges of Hanoi.

Post Doctoral Research Associate, Durham University, date limite: 2 Janvier 2017

 

Please note that the position closes for applications at 23.30pm on 02 January 2017.

The School of Government and International Affairs at Durham University wishes to appoint a full time Postdoctoral Research Associate for 18 months to work on a research project entitled ‘Reframing centuries of Cham forced displacement: Connections, interactions and networks across the South China Sea’. This post is to assist Dr Claire Sutherland (Durham University) and Dr Edyta Roszko (Copenhagen University) in investigating Cham Muslims who live across Southeast Asia, speak a Malayo-Polynesian language and exemplify the global and protracted nature of forced displacement.

Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork and museum representations across three countries – China, Vietnam and Malaysia – the project will offer first hand insights into the multiple social and economic inequalities arising from the lasting repercussions of repeated historical displacements that continue to mark the Cham out as marginal, even centuries on. Focusing on the historically fluid cultural and political identities of those engaged in the South China Sea (SCS) region, the project seeks to illuminate how perceived ethnic and religious commonalities and differences are interwoven with legislation and domestic discourses in ‘host’ countries, and how this might facilitate or constrain the integration of vulnerable and displaced groups like the Cham.

The research includes ethnographic fieldwork in villages in Malaysia in order to enhance knowledge of the Cham and the legacy of past forced displacement for a regionally mobile people, to include political, religious and trade activities and integration in their ‘host’ countries. The PDRA will be required to undertake multi-site fieldwork in Malaysia, contribute to research outputs and capacity-building with museum partners in Malaysia, and attend international conferences to present the project findings.

Interviews for this position are expected to take place in late January 2017 and the successful candidate should begin work in April 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter.

For further details of this position including person specification and success indicators, please read the full applicant brief situated at the bottom of this page.

« La question de l’hygiène aux Indes-Néerlandaises: les enjeux médicaux, culturels et sociaux » – Avis de soutenance de thèse, Gani A. Jaelani – 6 janvier 2017 – EHESS

Date de soutenance : le 6 janvier 2017
Thèse dirigée par : M. Gérard Jorland

Jury:

M. Romain Bertrand, directeur de recherche au CERI, Institut d’études
politiques Paris
M. Patrice Bourdelais, directeur d'études à l'EHESS
M. Charles Illouz, professeur à l'Université de la Rochelle (rapporteur)

*Résumé*

Cette étude est destinée à la question de l’hygiène aux
Indes-Néerlandaises, (Indonésie après l’époque coloniale). Aux périodes
étudiées (XIXe-milieu du XXe siècle) ce pays étant administré par les
Pays-Bas, cette question sera donc examinée dans son rapport avec le
colonialisme. L’hygiène était en effet liée à la politique coloniale qui
mettait en avant l’exploitation des ressources naturelles pour l’intérêt
économique des colonisateurs. Le médecin joue un rôle important dans la
construction de l’impérialisme. D’abord, il assure la santé des Européens –
des soldats, des planteurs et des administrateurs coloniaux – sous les
tropiques. La santé des Indigènes – qui constituent la main-d’œuvre, et au
sein desquels parfois éclate une épidémie qui menace le territoire – attire
également son attention. Enfin, en élargissant le sens du mot « santé » à
la santé mentale et sociale, le médecin ne traite plus seulement de
l’hygiène médicale, voire de l’hygiène corporelle, mais aussi de l’hygiène
sociale et culturelle ; il ne s’occupe plus seulement de préserver et
d’améliorer la santé du corps, mais aussi de préserver et de protéger la
moralité de la société. La lutte contre des facteurs destructeurs sociaux
comme l’abus d’alcool, la criminalité, la prostitution, la pornographie et
l’homosexualité est menée, car ces fléaux sociaux sont considérés comme un
obstacle pour une société qui est en train de construire sa modernité.

*Mots-clés *: Indes-Néerlandaises, colonialisme, Tropiques, hygiène, santé
publique, médecin.


*Abstract*

This research seeks to elaborate the question of hygiene in the Dutch
Indies, former name of Indonesia. The fact that during the period studied
this country was a colony of the Netherlands, the subject will be
investigated in its relation to colonialism. In the colonial world, hygiene
is inevitably related to the colonial politic which emphasizes on the
exploitation of natural resources for the economic interest of the
colonizer. The well-being of the population and the good health of the
workers must then be assured, hence public health programs become
significant. Questioning the health issue, this activity could not be
dissociated from medicines. The role of physicians as the main actors
became important in the construction of colonial state. This is due to
several reasons. First, they assured the health of the Europeans – the
military members, the planters, and the colonial administrators – in the
Tropics. The health of Indigenous people – regarded as the manpower – also
drew physicians’ attention, especially when there was an epidemic that
threatened the population. Finally, by extending the sense of the word
“health” to mental and social health, physicians no longer dealt only with
the hygiene of the body, but also the social and cultural hygiene; they do
not only engage in the improvement of health, but they also had to preserve
and protect the morality of the society. The struggle against the
unfavorable elements in the social life like alcohol abuse, criminality,
prostitution, pornography and homosexuality  was deployed because these
 elements are considered as a major barrier against  the process to
construct a modernity society.


Keywords: Dutch Indies, colonialism, the Tropics, hygiene, public health,
physician.


*Ringkasan*


Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk mengkaji persoalan higienitas di
Hindia-Belanda, negara yang kini bernama Indonesia. Mengingat penelitian
ini membahas periode kolonial Belanda, maka persoalan higienitas akan
dianalisis dalam hubungannya dengan kolonialisme. Dalam sebuah negara
kolonial, persoalan ini tentu saja erat terkait dengan politik kolonial
yang selalu mengedepankan praktik eksploitasi sumber alam untuk kepentingan
ekonomi penjajah. Itu sebabnya kesehatan penduduk dan tenaga kerja harus
dijamin, dan dari situlah program kesehatan masyarakat kemudian muncul.
Pembahasan mengenai hal ini tentu saja tidak bisa dilepaskan dari dunia
kedokteran, dan oleh karena itu peran dokter menjadi sangat penting dalam
pembentukan imperialisme. Terdapat beberapa alasan untuk ini. Pertama, para
dokter ini berperan dalam memberi jaminan kesehatan untuk orang-orang Eropa
seperti tentara, tuan kebun dan pegawai administrasi kolonial selama mereka
tinggal di daerah tropis. Kondisi kesehatan penduduk pribumi juga kemudian
menarik perhatian mereka, terutama ketika wabah epidemi menyerang. Ini
karena, bagaimana pun, orang pribumi dianggap sebagai sumber tenaga kerja
yang sangat penting. Terakhir, dengan memperluas makna “kesehatan” ke ranah
kesehatan mental dan sosial, para dokter ini tidak lagi hanya mengurusi
soal kesehatan tubuh, tetapi juga sibuk dalam urusan higienitas sosial dan
budaya; artinya mereka tidak hanya sibuk mengurusi orang sakit dan
meningkatkan kualitas kesehatan masyarakat, tetapi juga memberi perhatian
serius terhadap persoalan moral di dalam masyarakat. Perang terhadap
penyalahgunaan alkohol, kriminalitas, pelacuran, pornografi, dan
homoseksualitas dicanangkan, sebab “penyakit-penyakit” sosial ini dianggap
sebagai penghambat sebuah masyarakat modern.

Résumé : Les cartes apparaissent d’ordinaire comme des outils de pouvoir et de domination. Ces liens entre savoirs et pouvoirs, entre carte et territoire, sont-ils aussi serrés ? Ma thèse porte sur les savoirs cartographiques en situation coloniale, au nord de la péninsule indochinoise. J’y envisage la manière dont des espaces frontaliers, disputés par des Etats coloniaux et nationaux, ont été représentés et construits, entre 1885 et 1914, par les différents acteurs en présence : empires britannique, français et chinois, royaume de Siam, populations locales. L’enjeu est de dépasser les histoires nationales afin de proposer une étude croisée des politiques géographiques britannique et française dans des marges impériales et de lire les relations entre politiques géographiques impériales et pratiques de terrain.

The making of imperial territoires in Northern Indochinese Peninsula

Geography and cartography very often appear as sciences of imperialism, as maps are seen as instruments of domination. Are these links between maps and territories so tight? I will discuss the link between cartography and empire and will question the construction of the imperial territories through maps in Northern Indochinese Peninsula. I see how the border areas that were disputed by the colonial and national States were represented and constructed, between 1885 and 1914, by the different actors: British, French and Chinese empires, Siam realm, local peoples. The challenge is to  go beyond national approaches to offer a connected history of the British and French geographical policies in imperial margins and observe the relations between imperial geographical politics and science on the ground.

Soutenance de thèse Kunthea CHHOM, Le rôle du sanskrit dans le développement de la langue khmère : Une étude épigraphique du VIe au XIVe siècle – 16 décembre 2016

Kunthea CHHOM, Le rôle du sanskrit dans le développement de la langue khmère : Une étude épigraphique du VIe au XIVe siècle, EPHE, thèse de linguistique, dir. Dominic Goodall, co-dir. Michel Antelme, soutenue le 16 décembre 2016 (kchhom@yahoo.com).

Le Cambodge ancien (VIe – XIVe siècle) est riche en inscriptions, composées principalement en sanskrit, en vieux khmer et en deux langues (sanskrit et khmer). L’impact du vocabulaire sanskrit dans l’enrichissement linguistique du khmer n’avait pas encore étudié jusque-là en détail. Le présent travail propose d’examiner les inscriptions khmères et sanskrites comme un ensemble. Il traite des sujets et des domaines dans lesquels les éléments sanskrits apparaissent dans les inscriptions khmères ; à savoir : les donations, la datation, les bénédictions-malédictions, les noms propres, l’orthographe, le vocabulaire de l’administration royale, les fonctions des serviteurs dans les temples, la prosodie, la dérivation, les objets offerts aux dieux et les objets cultuels. Les emprunts sanskrits dans chaque domaine présentent différentes caractéristiques dans leur interaction avec les mots khmers ; certains d’entre eux prennent des connotations locales, d’autres deviennent des modèles de « calques » du sanskrit vers le khmer. Si les premières inscriptions semblent favoriser le sanskrit (dans certains cas, sous des formes prākritisées), celles du xe siècle sont en khmer et se distinguent par l’abondance de nouveaux emprunts au sanskrit. Le xe siècle est aussi marqué par l’apparition de textes qui contiennent des passages équivalents dans leurs versions sanskrite et khmère ; et au xiie et xive siècle nous trouvons deux inscriptions comprenant des passages équivalents en khmer et en pāli. Ces passages montrent que les textes sanskrits jouent non seulement le rôle « rhétorique » qui était réservé au sanskrit mais aussi le rôle « documentaire » considéré comme propre aux textes khmers.

The role of Sanskrit in the development of the Khmer language: An epigraphic study from the 6th to the 14th century

Ancient Cambodia (6th –14th century A.D.) is relatively rich in inscriptions, composed mainly in Sanskrit, in Old Khmer and in both languages (Sanskrit and Khmer). The impact of Sanskrit on the linguistic enrichment of the Khmer language has not been studied in detail. The present study proposes to examine the Sanskrit and Khmer parts together. It deals with the domains where Sanskrit elements appear densely clustered in the Khmer inscriptions, such as descriptions of donations, formulations of dating, boons and curses, proper names, orthography, royal administration, accounts of the functions of servants in temples and of objects offered to gods and cult objects. It also touches on areas where there appears to have been less palpable influence, such as prosody and morphological derivation. The Sanskrit loanwords in each domain show different features of interaction with Khmer terms: some of them acquire local connotations; some may be “calques” from Sanskrit into Khmer. (Calques of Khmer expressions in Sanskrit are also considered.) If the early inscriptions seem to favour Sanskrit (in some cases, in Prākritised forms), those from the 10th century A.D. onwards are increasingly in a form of Khmer characterized by an abundance of new Sanskrit loanwords. The 10th century is also marked by the appearance of some texts containing “equivalent” passages in their Khmer and Sanskrit portions; later on, in the 12th and the 14th century we find two inscriptions with equivalent passages in Khmer and Pāli. These passages prove that Sanskrit texts play not only the “rhetorical” role for which they are famous, but also the “documentative” role associated with the Khmer texts.
