Décès de Jayne Susan Werner, spécialiste du Viêt-Nam

[ndlr] Nous répercutons cette triste nouvelle reçue sur le réseau du Vietnam Studies Group (VSG) le 1er février dernier.

A la suite d’une longue maladie, la chercheuse Jayne Werner est décédée en ce début d’année 2018. Spécialiste de l’histoire vietnamienne moderne et contemporaine, elle est l’auteure de plusieurs monographies clés, dont une sur le Caodaïsme sous la colonisation et la guerre et une autre sur le genre à l’époque du Renouveau (depuis 1986). Comme l’indique sa page personnelle en ligne, elle a également co-édité plusieurs autres livres, deux sur la guerre américaine et un second sur les questions de genre.

Sa courte biographie en ligne la resitue dans le paysage international de la Vietnamologie :

Elle fait partie de la génération inaugurale des érudits du Viêt-Nam formés à l’Université Cornell et dans les autres centres de recherche sur l’Asie du Sud-Est aux États-Unis au cours des années 1960. Au cours de sa première année à Cornell, elle est tombée sous le charme des études vietnamiennes et de ce pays, une passion continue. Elle a fait son premier voyage au Viêt-Nam en 1972 et parle le vietnamien et le français.

Elle eut ensuite une longue carrière d’enseignement et de recherche à l’Université de Columbia (1981-2015) puis en tant que Professeure émérite à l’Université de Long Island.

Elle avait récemment publié (2012) avec George Dutton et John Whitmore, un instrument de travail capital sur les sources de la tradition vietnamienne sous la forme d’un « reader » rassemblant les textes clés de cette tradition du Viêt-Nam ancien à l’indépendance nationale. Plusieurs chercheurs lui ont rendu hommage comme George Dutton, son collègue et ami, ou l’historien David G. Marr dont elle était étudiante à Cornell en 1969-1971 dont il souligna la rigueur intellectuelle et son étude pionnière sur le Caodaïsme.

Maritime trade on the Biển Ðông Sea (the South China Sea) in History – 10/11/2015

[ndlr] Annonce d’un séminaire à New York sur l’histoire du commerce en Mer de Chine méridionale.

New York (November 10th, 2015).

The Institute for Vietnamese Culture & Education ( IVCE) is pleased to announce a seminar on Maritime trade on the Biển Ðông Sea (the South China Sea) in History.

Topic I: Archaeological finds in the Biển Đông Sea (otherwise called the South China Sea), and historical documents found in the archives of Vietnam, Japan, China and Western countries reveal the important role of the Biển Đông Sea and Vietnam in the maritime trade network of the world between the Xth and the XXth centuries, especially in the Grand Commercial Era of world (XVIth to XVIIIth centuries). Vietnam is located on the vast western continental shelves running lengthwise along the Biển Đông Sea, where a series of harbors were convenient for the trade ships of international merchants to dock and do business since the XIth century. Vietnam also possessed and frequented several archipelagoes in the Biển Đông Sea, including the Paracels (quần đảo Hoàng Sa) and the Spratlys (quần đảo Trường Sa), that lie on these busy trade routes. Presented by Dr. Trần Đức Anh Sơn.

Topic II: State regulations on foreign maritime trade areas and merchants and state expeditions to archipelagos in the Biển Đông Sea (the South China Sea) under the various dynasties, from the Lý, Trần to the Lê and Nguyễn, in Vietnam (Xth to XXth centuries). The legal and general historical documents, such as: Đại Việt sử ký toàn thư [Complete Annals of Đại Việt], Khâm định Việt sử thông giám cương mục [Comprehensive Annals of Vietnam as Ordered by the King], Lê triều chiếu lệnh thiện chính [The Book on Good Government of the Lê Dynasty], Phủ biên tạp lục [Miscellaneous Chronicles of the Pacified Frontier] show how foreign trade areas were established and foreign merchants’ movements regulated. Besides promoting foreign trade, the State also made itself present in the Biển Đông Sea by launching state expeditions to the Paracels (quần đảo Hoàng Sa) and Spratlys (quần đảo Trường Sa) for salvage and asserting sovereignty. Presented by Dr. Tạ Văn Tài.
