CFP : Atelier « Language and Social Hierarchy: Address and Self-Reference Practices in Southeast Asia », 21-22 juin 2019, Université de Sydney

Language and Social Hierarchy

Workshop on address and self-reference in Southeast Asia

Abstract due 30 March 2019

Research on address and self-reference in Southeast Asian languages has highlighted the dominance of a hierarchical, kinship-based model. Hierarchy manifests itself in people’s sensitivity to age and generational, institutional and socio-economic differences.

Studies of person reference in interaction have shown that the hierarchy-based system is as fixed as it is dynamic. While the terms for indexing age and generation within the same family are not alterable, people can negotiate positioning through alternative strategies


Despite this flexibility, it has been noted that, to convey symmetrical relations one may have to “step outside the system” in selecting terms, which illustrates of a tension between hierarchy and equality. This also tells us that social hierarchy remains the reference point relative to which practices of symmetry are measured. It also affirms our understanding of hierarchy as structurally stable ordering of social relations inherently intolerant of parity.

But what if it is possible to accomplish parity without stepping out of the system? How can we reconcile the tension between hierarchy and equality? Is reciprocal use of terms indexical of symmetrical relationship, or is it that we cannot assume reciprocal forms are synonymous with equal status? Is there a place for an argument that all social relations are inherently asymmetrical?

We invite scholars with expertise on Southeast Asian languages to participate in this workshop to debate these issues and offer a fresh perspective on the relationship between language and social hierarchy. In doing so, we hope to arrive at greater understanding of how addressing and self-reference practices constitute a fundamental aspect of social life in the region.

Appel à articles – Ho Chi Minh Ville, terrain de jeux métropolitain(s) / Ho Chi Minh City, a metropolitan playing field – n° 52 Revue EchoGéo collègues,
Nous avons le plaisir de diffuser un appel à articles pour le numéro n°52 de la revue EchoGéo intitulé « Ho Chi Minh Ville, terrain de jeux métropolitain(s) / Ho Chi Minh City, a metropolitan playing field » :
Ce dossier thématique a pour ambition de rendre compte du récent renouvellement des travaux de recherche sur la plus grande métropole du Vietnam contemporain, Ho Chi Minh Ville (ancienne Saigon) et ses 10 millions d’habitants. Le sous-titre de l’appel « terrain de jeux métropolitain(s) » peut s’entendre de deux manières, faisant à la fois référence aux jeux d’acteurs renouvelés auxquels donne lieu le processus de métropolisation de Ho Chi Minh Ville et au retour en nombre des chercheurs sur le terrain vietnamien depuis la fin des années 1990, après des décennies marquées par la guerre et une relative fermeture du pays. Ho Chi Minh Ville permet ainsi de poser la question de la spécificité de la production métropolitaine, comme de la production scientifique, en contexte autoritaire.
L’appel à articles complet et les recommandations aux auteurs pour les normes de présentation du texte, de la bibliographie et des illustrations sont disponibles en ligne :
Nous attendons les soumissions d’articles (environ 30 000 signes + les illustrations) au plus tard pour le 15 juillet 2019. Les articles peuvent être rédigés en français, en anglais ou en espagnol.
Les articles sont à envoyer aux coordinateurs du dossier, Marie Gibert-Flutre ( et Clément Musil (, avec copie à Karine Delaunay (, secrétaire éditoriale, qui les transmettra aux évaluateurs.
La sortie du numéro est prévue pour le printemps 2020.
Pour rappel, EchoGéo est une revue en accès ouvert (open access) disponible sur la plateforme
N’hésitez pas à faire circuler cet appel le plus largement possible dans vos réseaux de recherche respectifs et à nous solliciter pour toute question.
Un grand merci d’avance, 



Marie Gibert-Flutre (Université Paris-Diderot, CESSMA) et Clément Musil (UMR AUsser)

Dear colleagues,
We are delighted to launch the call for papers for the issue n°52 of the journal EchoGeo entitled « Ho Chi Minh City, a metropolitan playing field » :
This issue will document the recent resurge of research projects on contemporary Vietnam’s largest metropolis, Ho Chi Minh City (formerly known as Saigon) and its 10 million inhabitants. Our subtitle, “metropolitan playing field”, can be understood in two ways: as a reference to the new interactions between diverse players provoked by the metropolization of Ho Chi Minh City; but also as an allusion to the late 90s’ boom in researchers’ interest in Vietnam, after decades of war and relative lockdown. Ho Chi Minh City offers an opportunity to question the specificities of metropolitan production – as well as that of academic production – in an authoritarian context.
The full call for papers and contributor guidelines for text formatting, bibliography and illustration standards are available online:
The papers, written in French, English or Spanish, should be in the region of 30,000 signs (plus illustrations). They must be sent by the 15th July 2019 to this issue’s coordinators, Marie Gibert-Flutre ( and Clément Musil (, with a copy to Karine Delaunay, editorial secretary (
The papers will be published in issue 52 of EchoGéo (Spring 2020).
EchoGéo is an Open Access Journal, available on

Please, circulate widely. For any question, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best regards,
Marie Gibert-Flutre (Université Paris-Diderot, CESSMA) et Clément Musil (UMR AUsser)

CFP Journal of Global Buddhism invites submissions on Buddhist youth

This special issue for the Journal of Global Buddhism invites submissions on Buddhist youth in and across a range of geographical locations, including research on lay and monastic Buddhist youth in both majority and minority Buddhist contexts. It takes a broad view of ‘Buddhist youth’ that includes not only those who have been raised in Buddhist families and accept traditional tenets of Buddhist philosophy, but also young people who self-identify as Buddhist without being raised as Buddhist, and young people who engage in Buddhist teachings and practices without necessarily identifying as Buddhist. In light of ongoing debates regarding definitions of ‘youth’, other definitions of Buddhist youth will also be considered, especially if they relate to one or more of the topics listed below.

We are especially interested in contributions from Southeast Asia and Myanmar, in particular. Please consider submitting an abstract if this is near your field of study:

Young people are often at the forefront of religious change. As research on Buddhism proliferates, a focus on Buddhist youth can shed new light on the changes taking place as Buddhist teachings, practices, institutions and resources are transformed, modified and redefined across different contexts.

Papers which focus on the global south are particularly encouraged, as are papers which engage with and advance existing and emerging theoretical and conceptual directions. We welcome multidisciplinary perspectives, e.g. sociological, political, anthropological, religious studies, Buddhist studies and youth studies perspectives, as well as insider and/or outsider research.

Topics may include (but are not limited to) the following:

• Engagements with Buddhist practice and thought, contemporary manifestations of mindfulness, religious nationalism, and the politics of gender, sexuality, race and class

• Transnational and technologically-mediated flows
and mobilities

• Generational differences and/or continuities

• Issues of transmission and modernisation

• Buddhist youth transitions to adulthood

• Buddhist youth identity and belonging

• Buddhist youth organisations

• Buddhist education in schools

• Hybrid religious identification

150 words abstracts are due 22 February 2019. Authors whose abstracts have been accepted will be informed by 8 March, and will be invited to submit full articles by September 1.

All submissions and questions regarding the special issue should be addressed to the coeditors:

Symposium Phnom Penh Octobre 2019

Appel à communications

Langues, cultures et éducation en Asie du Sud Est : identité et diversité 

Université Royale de Phnom Penh, 16-19 octobre 2019


(English below)

L’Asie du Sud-Est est vue comme un ensemble à partir de la Chine ou du Japon (Southern SeasNanyang, Nampo)[1],  de l’Inde (« territoire d’or », suvarnabhumi ou Suvarnadvipa)[2] ou à travers un prisme occidental et en particulier nord-américain – dominant depuis la Deuxième Guerre Mondiale.

Côtoyant des traits culturels, artistiques, religieux ou linguistiques communs, produits d’histoires et de trajectoires en partie partagées, la singularité des expériences locales reste quant à elle bien réelle, en dépit de ruptures apparentes dues notamment à l’histoire coloniale, aux luttes d’influence des grandes puissances internationales et à la mondialisation

Le panorama ethnolinguistique de l’ASE offre une diversité remarquable tant sur le plan génétique que typologique. Cette diversité illustre les dynamiques entre langues, cultures et éducation qui se manifestent à travers différents modes de transmission de savoirs – familiaux, corporatifs, communautaires, étatiques. Leur hiérarchie relève de paradigmes historiques particuliers. Ce sont précisément ces dynamiques interactionnelles qui participent à la construction des identités locales, nationales et supra nationales.

A l’occasion des 75 ans de l’IRD et de la création du « Centre pour les Sciences Humaines et Sociales » au Cambodge en octobre venant clôturer le projet GEReSH-CAM, le présent colloque choisit d’examiner la singularité des pratiques linguistiques, culturelles et des modes de transmission de savoirs sur le temps long dans la diversité – et parfois la proximité – des contextes, contemporains ou anciens, de l’Asie du Sud Est.

Dans le domaine de l’éducation, on s’intéressera aux différentes formes de transmission de savoirs incluant les modes traditionnels (dans le cadre de systèmes ésotériques ou exotériques, qu’il s’agisse de structures anciennes existant dans les sociétés sans Etat ou de structures de savoir indianisées, sinisées ou islamisées) et les systèmes éducatifs contemporains formels et informels. On s’interrogera sur la transmission culturelle au regard des langues et des normes qui leur sont associées à différents niveaux (famille, école, religion, corporation) pour assurer la transmission des savoirs et des pratiques qui constituent ces cultures. On s’intéressera également aux pratiques scolaires qui peuvent être partagées entre des objectifs nationaux d’homogénéisation linguistique et culturelle et une prise en compte de la diversité linguistique et culturelle au travers des programmes, des politiques linguistiques et éducatives spécifiques, de la production de manuels ou de pratiques particulières. En particulier, on pourra s’intéresser aux processus d’inclusion ou d’exclusion scolaire, à la diffusion de normes étatiques et à l’ensemble de la communauté éducative (enseignants, familles, élèves).

Dans le domaine linguistique et culturel, on s’intéressera en particulier à l’unité et à la diversité des expériences individuelles, ethnoculturelles et nationales et à l’appréhension particulière du monde au travers de ces différents prismes. La langue – qu’elle soit celle de communautés minoritaires, d’une communauté nationale, écrite ou orale – est en effet à la fois outil de la transmission culturelle et partie prenante du complexe culturel, bien souvent son premier signe extérieur. La question du legs colonial et du rapport entre langues et cultures locales et langues et cultures globalisées ainsi que les problèmes liés à des descriptions des langues font également partie du centre d’intérêt du colloque.

Le colloque sera le lieu privilégié du dialogue entre les travaux portants sur différents cas régionaux ou nationaux à propos de l’Asie du Sud Est. Les communications pourront concerner des études de cas ou des contributions plus méthodologiques ou théoriques. Les disciplines suivantes sont particulièrement concernées : sciences du langage, sciences de l’éducation, sociologie, anthropologie, géographie, histoire et archéologie.

Ce colloque donnera lieu à une publication collective.

Modalités de soumission :

Les communications auront une durée de 25 minutes suivies de 5 minutes de discussion. Une session de posters sera également organisée.

Les langues de communication seront le khmer, le français ou l’anglais ; une traduction simultanée est prévue, il est néanmoins fortement souhaitable que les intervenants comprennent deux des trois langues. Les résumés des communications (de 500 mots maximum) doivent être envoyés à  avant le 5 mars

Les étudiants et les chercheurs dont les propositions seront retenues peuvent solliciter des subventions, pour leur voyage et séjour, qui seront attribuées en fonction des possibilités financières de la conférence et de la qualité de leur proposition de communication. La priorité sera accordée aux étudiants et chercheurs des pays d’Asie du Sud Est.

Languages, Cultures and Education in South East Asia: Identity and Diversity 

Royal University of Phnom Penh, October 16th-19th 2019


For China and Japan, Southeast Asia is regarded as a unique group of countries sharing many common characteristics (Southern SeasNanyang, Nampo)[1]. For India, the group is known as “Golden Territory” or Suvarnabhumi or Suvarnadvipa[2]. After the WWII, the concept has been further reinforced, particularly among North American. 

With common cultural, artistic, religious and even linguistic features, which are products of partially shared histories and trajectories, the uniqueness of local experiences is still real, despite apparent disruptions caused by colonial histories, struggles for influence among superpowers and globalization. 

Along these lines, the conference theme is “Languages, Cultures and Education in Southeast Asia: Identity and Diversity.” The conference coincides with the Institute of Research for Development’s (IRD, France) 75th anniversary and marks the ending of the GEReSH-Cam project as well as the launching of the “Center for Human and Social Sciences” in Cambodia. 

This international conference examines the uniqueness of linguistic and cultural practices and ways of knowledge transmission from past to present. It also shines light on diversity and proximity of Southeast Asian contexts in ancient time as well as the present.  

In the field of education, the conference intends to promote a discussion on various forms of knowledge transmission, including traditional models, either esoteric or exoteric systems of the ancient structures in stateless societies or those knowledge structures influenced by India, China or Islam. Contemporary formal and informal education systems will also be parts of the discussion. Specifically, the conference will explore cultural transmission through languages and norms at different levels (family, school, religion and social group) and how such transmission is ensured. The conference intends to understand how schools are trying to implement state policies of linguistic and cultural homogenization while at the same time trying to address the issues of linguistic and cultural diversity in their curricula.

As for the field of language and culture, the conference will discuss issues of uniqueness and diversity among individuals, ethno-cultural and national experiences, and the specific conception of the world as seen through those lenses. Language – be it the language of a minority or a national community, oral or written – is both the means by which cultural transmission is performed and a part of the cultural complex itself. In other words, language is the foremost manifestation of cultural complexity. Issues such as colonial legacies and relations between local and globalized languages and cultures as well as the description of languages will also be examined in this conference.

The conference aims to showcase various national and regional case studies for comparisons among different contexts in Southeast Asia. We welcome papers and presentations in the form of case studies as well those dealing with methodological or theoretical issues related to languages, cultures and education. The following disciplines are especially encouraged: languages and linguistics, education and cultural studies, sociology and anthropology, geography, history and archeology.

Please note that an edited book will follow the conference.

Submissions types:

§  Individual presentations: 25 minutes papers plus 5 minutes discussion are welcome.

§  Posters presentations.

Papers may be submitted in Khmer, English or French; although a simultaneous translation will be available, speakers will make the most of the conference if they understand at least 2 of the 3 languages. Proposals of no more than 500 words should be send to before March 5.

Students and researchers whose papers/presentations are accepted may receive financial support for their travel and conference costs in Cambodia. Financial support will be allocated depending on financial availabilities and proposal quality with priority given to students and scholars from Southeast Asia.

14th Singapore Graduate Forum on Southeast Asian Studies (22-26 July 2019, Singapore)

CALL FOR PAPERS (Deadline: 22 February 2019)

14th Singapore Graduate Forum on Southeast Asian Studies


Date : 22-26 July 2019
Venue : National University of Singapore
Website :


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 14th Singapore Graduate Forum on Southeast Asian Studies on 22-26 July 2019.

This five-day forum, the fourteenth 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.

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, academic rankings and statistics, as well as 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 2019, which brings some 28 graduate students to ARI for a six-week period. These students will also participate in the Graduate Forum.


Graduate students should submit a 300-400 words abstract of their proposed paper to Ms Tay Minghua at no later than 22 February 2019. Please click here for the Application Form. 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 2019. Those selected will have to submit full-length papers, of around 4,000-5,000 words in length, by 20 June 2019.
