Symposium : Reframing the Archive: The Reuse of Film and Photographic Images in Postcolonial Southeast Asia
1er juin 2017, Centre of Southeast Asian Studies, SOAS
Call for papers – Deadline: 31st January 2017
In recent years, the decision to engage with colonial and postcolonial archives has become increasingly commonplace within Southeast Asian film, photography and visual culture. Whilst this renewed interest in archival materials has resulted in an increased awareness of the complexities of lens-based media, it has also allowed practitioners to challenge both the dominant narratives of colonialism and their neo- and postcolonial legacies. In the case of Cambodia and its diasporas, this archival impulse – and its accompanying modes of (re-) appropriation – is exemplified by films such as Rithy Panh’s La France est notre patrie [‘France is our Homeland’] and Davy Chou’s Golden Slumbers. Whereas the former offers an insight into the hypocrisies of French colonial rule, the latter takes its lead from the development of twentieth century Cambodian cinema. Yet despite differing in their aims and emphases, these projects share a number of common characteristics – namely, a desire to foreground the importance of preserving and revisiting archival materials: two imperatives which have acquired a particular significance in the aftermath of the Khmer Rouge regime.

Colloquium with Prof. Nam C. Kim, Department of Anthropology, University of Wisconsin-Madison
Vietnam’s ancient past lives on in the national imagination of Vietnam today, illustrating close ties between the archaeological record, ancient texts, and the aspirations and political agendas of living communities. As an illustrative case, research on the ancient Co Loa settlement offers interesting insights and theoretical implications. Beyond significance for early urbanism and state formation in ancient Southeast Asia, the Co Loa case also highlights how archaeology can impact historical reconstruction and notions of national identity, while also affecting efforts to claim and preserve cultural heritage. This lecture explores these relationships, and the ways in which the ancient past can inform, challenge, and be appropriated by disparate stakeholders.

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.

The Sarawak Museum Department (SMD), through its Sarawak Museum Campus Project, is welcoming applications in 2017 for 12 fellowships (postdocs) based at the Sarawak Museum in Kuching (Malaysia), an ASEMUS member.
The Sarawak Museum Campus Project is a State-funded project to revive the international status of the Sarawak Museum and to build a new museum to showcase Sarawak’s rich cultural and historical heritage which will incorporate education and public outreach programmes. Its main goal is to establish a world-class museum campus and become one of the best museums in the region.
The fellowships will be granted for the period of one year, and research will be concentrated on material culture and the significance of the museum collections. Part of the assignment will also be to exchange knowledge with the museum’s curators and to assist in capacity building. To make the research sustainable, expert sessions will be organised to engage community members and other professionals involved in the knowledge sharing and validation process.
