Appel à contributions pour un numéro spécial de la revue Journal of Burma Studies

Journal of Burma Studies Special Issue

Call for Abstracts

Myanmar’s Mobilities: Infrastructure, Communication and Migration

What do smartphones and dams have in common, despite being situated at opposite ends of an electric grid? They can be sources of social change, controversy, degradation and inspiration, depending on what aspect is under scrutiny. As elsewhere, in Myanmar technologies of communication and transportation have played crucial roles in changing not only how people survive, but what they think, feel and eat. The environments have also been transformed in these processes.

In this Special Issue, the Journal of Burma Studies seeks to draw together an interdisciplinary collection of papers on the broad theme of Myanmar’s Mobilities. Mobilities can include research about communication and transport technologies, including (but hardly limited to): phones, the Internet, YouTube, Social Media, telegraph, rails, rivers, aircraft, porters and mules. The other sides of the communication and transportation, of course are the transported and the mobile, thinking about products, migrants, legal issues, remittances, popular culture and contact.

The Journal would especially like to reach out to PhD Students and Junior Scholars to consider submitting their research to this issue; as an interdisciplinary theme, we welcome novel approaches, including those from geography, history, sociology, ichthyology, literature, engineering, communications, geology, anthropology and religious studies, to name but a few. We welcome any paper proposal that highlights a certain aspect of mobility in Myanmar, and challenges us to see new angles for how to understand either a historic moment, process, or contemporary condition in the mobile.

Abstracts should be a maximum of 250 words, and sent as email attachment in .doc or .docx format. Include on the same page of your abstract your name, affiliation and preferred email address. Please also wrote “Journal of Burma Studies Special Issue: Mobilities” in the title of your email.

Abstracts due: 30 June 2019

Please send your abstracts (and address any questions) to

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)
