  • Islamic Manuscripts in the National Archives of the Philippines by Isaac Donoso
 Abstract :Despite being one of the most important collections of Philippine documents in jāwī script, the National Archives of the Philippines have been seldom employed by researchers. César Adib Majul even confessed to the puzzling condition of the original archive in the preparation of his landmark Muslims in the Philippines. Nevertheless, he was the first to unearth its treasures. After several years of extensive work, we have developed a picture of its contents and values. In this paper, we will present an introduction to the nature of Philippine Islamic manuscripts by describing the contents, scope and language of the jāwī documents preserved at the National Archives of the Philippines.”

Buddhist Literacy in Early Modern Northern Vietnam, 23-24 septembre


Presented by Rutgers: The State University of New Jersey & The Vietnamese Nôm Preservation Foundation

“Our symposium seeks to break down these artifical barriers by examining a set of religious texts now housed at Thắng Nghiêm and Phổ Nhân, two syncretic Buddhist temples located 15 km southwest of Hanoi, in northern Vietnam. The collection was gathered from the surrounding region by the current abbot beginning in 1997, and represents a diverse library of primarily secular xylographic and epigraphic texts, composed over the latter half of the 2nd millennium, and written in both Literary Chinese and vernacular Vietnamese “ Chữ Nôm” (an extinct character script used to represent vernacular Vietnamese, until its replacement by the Latin alphabet in the early 20th century). As one contributor points out, these texts are remarkable for their pedestrian character, providing a uniquely mundane portrait of literacy in early modern northern Vietnam. These texts were recently digitized through the groundbreaking efforts of the Vietnamese Nom Preservation Foundation (VNPF), making the entire collection accessible to scholarly examination for the first time…”

CERI : Dix ans après le coup d’Etat de 2006 : La Thaïlande dans l’impasse autoritaire


Lundi 19 septembre | 17h00

Dix ans après le coup d’Etat de 2006 qui renversa Thaksin Shinawatra, la Thaïlande semble s’enfoncer durablement dans la dictature.Elle est aujourd’hui l’un des seuls pays au monde à connaître encore une dictature militaire. Le 7 août dernier, les Thaïlandais ont accepté par référendum une constitution entérinant le pouvoir de l’armée; le chef de la junte au pouvoir, Prayuth Chan-Ocha s’est déjà déclaré prêt à assumer le poste de premier ministre après la tenue d’élections.  Ce panel abordera les questions de la démocratie et de l’Etat en Thaïlande sous les angles de la science politique, de l’histoire et du droit.
