Du Ramayana au Reamker… à la lumière des ombres [TukTukTV]

[ndlr] A voir sur la chaîne Tuk Tuk TV (Youtube) un documentaire de Patrick Kersalé.

Le Reamker est la version khmère de la célèbre épopée du Ramayana indien. Dès le Xe siècle, il est représenté dans les bas-reliefs des temples hindous du Cambodge. Il s’est transmis par la tradition orale jusqu’à nos jours malgré les vicissitudes de l’histoire. Sa représentation à travers le théâtre d’ombres a failli disparaître à jamais avec la révolution khmère rouge. Mais c’était sans compter sur la ténacité d’une poignée d’hommes animés par une foi à toute épreuve…

Cambodge : une cité perdue antérieure à Angkor [SciencePost]

[ndlr] Signalement d’un article.

Des archéologues ont découvert dans la jungle du Cambodge une cité perdue du nom de Mahendraparvata, une ancienne cité khmère plus ancienne que la célèbre cité d’Angkor.

Depuis 2013, une cité khmère est fouillée dans la jungle du Cambodge. Cette dernière a été découverte par Damian Evans, un archéologue australien collaborant avec l’École française d’Extrême-Orient, avec l’aide de Jean-Baptiste Chevance, directeur de la Fondation Archéologie et Développement basée à Siem Reap, ville touristique comptabilisant 4 millions visiteurs chaque année.

Lào có Tổng Bí thư 78 tuổi [BBC]

[ndlr] Alors qu’au Viêt-Nam le PCV s’apprête à élire un nouveau Comité central qui lui-même désignera le Bureau Politique et le futur Secrétaire général du parti,  le Parti populaire révolutionnaire du Laos (ພັກປະຊາຊົນປະຕິວັດລາວ) vient de désigner son nouveau Secrétaire général : Bounnhang Vorachith, l’ancien vice-président de la RDPL (depuis 2006) aujourd’hui âgé de 78 ans !

Chính khách 78 tuổi được bầu làm Tổng Bí thư Đảng Nhân dân Cách mạng Lào hôm 22/1.

Ông Bounnhang Vorachith vốn là Ủy viên Bộ Chính trị, Thường trực Ban Bí thư Đảng Nhân dân Cách mạng Lào, Phó Chủ tịch nước Cộng hòa Dân chủ Nhân dân Lào.

Ông Bounnhang là phó chủ tịch nước Lào từ 2006. Trước đó, ông từng giữ chức thủ tướng.

Ban Chấp hành Trung ương khóa mới vắng bóng đương kim tổng bí thư và thủ tướng, là chỉ dấu cho thấy hai ông sẽ nghỉ hưu.

Ban Chấp hành mới, gồm 77 thành viên sẽ lãnh đạo đảng và đất nước trong năm năm tới, có những thành viên thuộc thế hệ trẻ hơn mà nhiều người trong số họ là con cái của các nhà lãnh đạo cũ, theo báo The Nation của Thái Lan.

Hai nhà lãnh đạo kỳ cựu sắp ra đi là những người từng có chân trong nhiều năm tại Bộ Chính trị Lào.

Cả hai đều không có tên trong danh sách Ban Chấp hành được công bố hôm thứ Sáu, dấu hiệu cho thấy sự nghiệp chính trị của họ đã đi đến hồi kết khi quyết định không tái cử.

UCRSEA Post-Doctoral Fellowship 2016.2017

[ndlr] Post-doctorat à Toronto sur la résilience climatique urbaine en Asie du Sud-Est. Date limite de candidature : 10 février 2016.

The Urban Climate Resilience in Southeast Asia Partnership (UCRSEA), located in the Asia Institute at the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto, invites applications for a one-year UCRSEA Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Urban Climate Change Resilience. Research proposed must be pertinent to UCRSEA’s focus on building urban climate change capacity, particularly in the Mekong region. The Fellowship will commence 1 July 2016, with an annual salary of C$45,000 plus benefits.

The Partnership addresses vulnerabilities to climate change in urbanizing areas of Southeast Asia with the goal of enhancing resilience and, hence, economic and social well-being. Individual and community vulnerabilities in the region are linked to global environmental change and to the rapid pace of urbanization and economic integration of the region. Specifically, we seek to provide vulnerable peoples in transitional states with the space to learn about and share in decisions about protecting themselves from the economic, social and physical impacts of climate change.

Qualifications
The successful applicant is expected to reside in Toronto, Canada during the term of the Fellowship, and will have the opportunity to participate in the intellectual life of the Munk School of Global Affairs and larger University of Toronto community during the 2016-2017 academic year. Support for conference and research travel in Southeast Asia is available.

Eligibility is limited to applicants who have received their PhD in a relevant discipline within the three years prior to the start date of the UCRSEA fellowship (i.e. July 2013 or later). All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority.

Responsibilities
In addition to pursuing an intensive research project, the post-doctoral fellow is expected to participate as a member of the UCRSEA team.

Core responsibilities of the post-doctoral fellow include:

  • Conducting research of relevance to the UCRSEA project;
  • Presenting two research seminars at the Munk School of Global Affairs, with the first in the Fall of 2016 and the second in the Spring of 2017;
  • Preparing an original, full-length research paper for publication as part of the UCRSEA Paperseries;
  • Participating in the UCRSEA Virtual Graduate Student Seminar.

Other responsibilities, to be identified with UCRSEA partners and directors based on the fellow’s interests and UCRSEA’s research agenda, could include:

  • Planning UCRSEA conferences, events, or workshops, in conjunction with UCRSEA partners;
  • Preparing research papers for publication as part of the UCRSEA Papers series;
  • Participation in other UCRSEA research projects and initiatives; and
  • Providing research assistance and support to the UCRSEA Co-Directors.

 Applications

The deadline for applications is 10 February 2016 at noon (EST). The committee will notify applicants of their decision by 10 March 2016.

Application instructions can be found here.

Funding
