“Vietnam – Fleeting Encounters”



“Vietnam – Fleeting Encounters” by Chu Viet Ha, 18/04/2016, Invisible Photographer Asia

“I photograph to see what the world looks like in photographs.” Garry Winogrand once said. In many ways, Winogrand’s words appropriately describe the images of Chu Viet Ha, Hanoi-based street photographer and architect. Chu Viet Ha’s fleeting moments collected from the streets of Vietnam are a personal, evolving endeavour to not only frame his people and city, but an investigation of their lights and shades.”

SEAP Gatty Lecture Series : “Past Lives, Present Tense: Past-Life Memory in Contemporary Cambodia” by Erik Davis, 21/04/2016, Cornell University


“Past-life memory in Cambodia is common. In the dominantly Buddhist culture, past-life memory is usually interpreted in terms of the Buddhist cycle of saṃsāra, where past-life memory is often a prerequsite for advanced stages of spiritual accomplishment. However, in practice, past-life memory is often deeply disturbing to the rememberer, their family and their community. This presentation discusses three examples of contemporary past-life memory out of Erik’s fieldwork in Cambodia, highlighting the practices that surround such memory and uses to which such memories are put. Examples include a young girl who remembers being her own uncle, a spiritual leader who claims to be the most important Buddhist leader of the Cambodian twentieth century, and another woman who put two families together in her youth, and has maintained their connections into her eighties.”

Western Popular Music and the Postcolonial Imaginary (proposed edited volume)

“We invite 400-word abstracts dealing with any aspect of Western popular music/videos and the postcolonial imaginary by 17 May 2016.”

“In highlighting Beyoncé as a Hindu goddess for their recent music video “Hymn for the Weekend,” the popular music group Coldplay sparked broad-based criticism from South Asian critics, for a variety of reasons, often dealing with cultural colonialism and appropriation. This is, of course, not the first time Western music artists—in songs and/or videos—have appropriated postcolonial symbols and stereotypes in their work; such practices have been occurring since at least the 1960s. David Desmondhalgh’s work, for example, has done much to address questions of difference, representation and othering in music from an ethnomusicology viewpoint. But aside from occasional commentary, in the popular press and in individual scholarly essays, this genre has inspired relatively less critical conversation when compared with films, or other modes of cultural production …”
