Imaginaires nationaux : de l’empire colonial aux états-nations d’aujourd’hui

Portrait du Prince Phetsarath Ratanavongsa (1890-1959), chef du mouvement indépendantiste Lao Issara (Laos Libre), premier ministre du Laos de 1942 à 1945 et vice-roi du Royaume du Laos

Le Laos, des principautés royales à l’État-nation

Séance 5 : mardi 8 novembre 2016

Cette séance sera consacrée à la construction du Laos, de la situation précoloniale à la République Démocratique Populaire d’aujourd’hui. A travers la figure du Prince Phetsarath, leader du mouvement Lao Issara (Laos libre) nous verrons sur quoi se fonde le nationalisme laotien et nous soulèverons la question du neutralisme pendant la période de la guerre civile entre le Gouvernement royal et le Pathet Lao.

Comme pour ses voisins indochinois, la construction du Laos se décline à travers l’avènement de plusieurs périodes clés (période coloniale, occupation japonaise, révolution, guerre civile) et l’avènement d’une succession de régimes politiques (protectorat français, Royaume du Laos, République Démocratique Populaire du Laos depuis le 2 décembre 1975…).

“Crossings in Southeast Asia”

Cornell Southeast Asia Program’s

19th Annual Graduate Student Conference

March 10-12, 2017

Kahin Center for Advanced Research on Southeast Asia

Cornell University in Ithaca, New York

Crossings evoke the process of traversing and negotiating terrains, waters, temporalities, identities and paradigms. How do crossings challenge the boundaries of these concepts in the studies of Southeast Asia? In thinking about intersections of old and new ideas, what crossings have scholars attempted and what obstacles have they faced? Cornell Southeast Asia Program’s 19th Annual Southeast Asian Studies Graduate Student Conference is inviting submissions that engage these questions. The conference will be held March 10-12, 2017 at the Kahin Center for Advanced Research on Southeast Asia at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Professor Anne Blackburn from the Department of Asian Studies at Cornell will be joining us as our keynote speaker.

Symposium : Reframing the Archive: The Reuse of Film and Photographic Images in Postcolonial Southeast Asia

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

https://www.soas.ac.uk/cseas/events/01jun2017-reframing-the-archive-the-reuse-of-film-and-photographic-images-in-postcolonial-southeast-.html

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.
