Nicolas Lainez : Par-delà la traite des femmes vietnamiennes en Asie du Sud-Est – Anthropologie économique des carrières intimes

[ndlr] Avis de la soutenance de thèse de Nicolas Lainez, anthropologue à l’EHESS.

Soutenance de thèse d’anthropologie présentée publiquement par Nicolas LAINEZ

sous la direction de Michel Bozon

Par-delà la traite des femmes vietnamiennes en Asie du Sud-Est. 

Anthropologie économique des carrières intimes

À partir d’une enquête sur la traite prostitutionnelle conduite au Viêt Nam, au Cambodge et à Singapour, cette thèse propose une anthropologie économique des relations intimes que les femmes prostituées vietnamiennes nouent avec des opérateurs informels de crédit, avec des facilitateurs de la migration prostitutionnelle, avec des employeurs de l’industrie sexuelle, avec leur famille ainsi qu’avec les hommes qui rétribuent leurs services. Alors que l’économie de marché, à laquelle le Viêt Nam adhère depuis les réformes du Renouveau (Doi Moi) en 1986, pousse ces femmes à entreprendre, à investir, à s’endetter, à consommer et à migrer, de nombreuses embûches se dressent sur leur chemin : exclusion du marché de crédit, coût élevé de la migration transnationale régulée, obligations de solidarité familiale, inégalités de genre, risques de stigmatisation. Pour se frayer un chemin dans cet univers d’opportunités et de contraintes, elles utilisent l’intimité comme une ressource polyvalente et stratégique afin d’augmenter leurs marges de manœuvre et d’étoffer leurs répertoires d’action.

La réflexion proposée s’appuie sur un concept capable de rendre compte de la fluidité des parcours et de l’articulation entre économie et intimité : les carrières intimes. Cette perspective invite à examiner les parcours de dette à la lumière de l’évolution récente des marchés financiers et de la migration prostitutionnelle, mais aussi les trajectoires de care au regard du régime « familialiste » de bien-être promu par l’État, les carrières sexuelles au prisme des inégalités de genre et notamment de la division sexuelle du travail, ainsi que les carrières morales en référence à la politique de lutte contre les « fléaux sociaux ».

Nourrie d’un solide socle empirique privilégiant l’ethnographie économique de l’intimité et le suivi longitudinal ainsi que d’une longue expérience avec les ONG luttant contre la traite en Asie du Sud-Est, cette recherche dépasse rapidement son objet initial, la traite, pour mettre en relief des aspects inédits de la vie des femmes vietnamiennes et interroger la place de l’intimité dans l’économie de marché. Sur le plan théorique, ce travail construit son objet sur l’anthropologie de l’esclavage, la sociologie « déconstructiviste » de la traite, la sociologie économique de l’intimité et la sociologie des carrières.

Call For Papers – Vietnam Forum 2016 [ISEAS]

[ndlr] Appel à communications sur le thème « Viêt-Nam, 30 ans de Renouveau et au-delà », organisé par l’ISEAS à Singapour les 24 et 25 mars 2016. Date limite de l’envoi du résumé de communication (250 mots) le 17 juillet 2016.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Vietnam Forum 2016

“Vietnam: Thirty years of Doi Moi and beyond”

24-25 March 2016

Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (ISEAS)

30 Heng Mui Keng Terrace, Singapore 119614

———————-

The Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) adopted the Doi Moi (Renovation) policy at its sixth National Congress in 1986, opening up a new chapter in the country’s modern history. Under Doi Moi, Vietnam has undergone significant socio-economic reforms that transformed the country from a backward centrally-planned, autarkic economy into a dynamic market-based and highly internationally integrated one, and one of the most successful stories in terms of poverty reduction in Asia’s contemporary history. The country’s political system has also adopted various reforms to facilitate economic development and good governance. At the same time, Vietnam’s foreign policy has also been renovated under Doi Moi as Hanoi abandoned the ideology-based foreign policy making to pursue the “diversification and multilateralisation” of its international relations. As such, Vietnam has transformed itself into a well respected international partner with increasing influence over regional affairs.

Next year will witness another milestone in the country’s development as the CPV will convene its 12th National Congress to review the past 30 years of Doi Moi and to introduce new policies to guide the country’s future development. In particular, there have been calls for a second Doi Moi (Doi Moi 2.0) to lift Vietnam out of prolonged economic difficulties since 2008 and to establish a new growth model for the country. Therefore, economic reforms, if any, introduced by the Party at the Congress will have important implications for Vietnam’s future economic performance. Moreover, official documents adopted by the Congress may also shed light on how the CPV will deal with mounting pressures for further political reforms as well as foreign policy challenges brought about by China’s increasing assertiveness in the South China Sea.

Theme and topics

Against this backdrop, ISEAS will organize the Vietnam Forum 2016 on “Vietnam: Thirty years of Doi Moi and beyond”. The Forum will provide a timely opportunity for Vietnam watchers to review and examine the various socio-economic, political and foreign policy transformations that Doi Moi has produced over the past 30 years as well as their national and regional implications. Held at a critical juncture of the country’s development, the Forum will also be an appropriate platform for scholars and policy makers to share their views on Vietnam’s contemporary challenges and its future trajectories.

The Forum is multidisciplinary, and we welcome papers on a broad range of topics as long as they address the general theme of the Forum. Papers with comparative approaches (especially between Vietnam and China) are also welcome. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • Vietnam’s current economic restructuring; SOE reforms; the role of private and foreign-invested sectors; the role of foreign aid and foreign actors in Vietnam’s economic development; Vietnam’s outward FDI; the role of overseas Vietnamese in Vietnam’s economic development; the development of Vietnam’s financial sector…
  • Vietnam’s political reforms under Doi Moi; the CPV’s legitimacy and political challenges; politics within the CPV; administrative and judicial reforms; corruption and the fight against corruption; constitutional reform…
  • Vietnam’s social and cultural changes under Doi Moi; immigration and demographic changes; urbanization process; inequality; middle class; Vietnam’s education reform…
  • Vietnam’s foreign policy evolution under Doi Moi; Vietnam’s contemporary foreign policy challenges; Vietnam’s relations with major countries and ASEAN; Vietnam and the South China Sea disputes; Vietnam’s international economic integration…

Forum’s format

The Forum will be divided into four consecutive panels, focusing on four research areas: economics; politics; social and cultural issues; and foreign policy. Each panel will address the overall theme of the Forum with a focus on their specific area.

Each panel will be composed of 4-5 participants, each participant has 20 minutes to present their paper and 10 minutes for Q&A. Depending on the quality of the papers submitted, however, the number of participants in each panel may be increased or decreased so that the best participants/papers will be selected.

It is expected that an edited book based on a number of selected papers will be published within 12-18 months after the Forum concludes.

Submission of abstracts and full papers

Interested scholars should submit author information, paper title and an abstract (maximum 250 words) via the Forum’s website before 17 July 2015. Selected authors will be notified via email on 24 July 2015.

The deadline for full papers to be submitted is 29 January 2016. Please note that authors who do not submit completed papers by due date may be asked to give up their place in the Forum.

The papers must be original research that have not been published or are not being considered for publication anywhere else.

The papers should be between 6000-8000 words, using endnotes and following the rules set out in Chapter 15 of the Chicago Manual Style, 12th edition, 1969.

Conference grants

ISEAS will cover economy class round-trip airfare and accommodation (2 to 3 nights) for selected participants, plus per diems during the Forum.

Key dates

  • Abstract submission: 17 July 2015
  • Selected participants announced: 24 July 2015
  • Full paper submission: 29 January 2016
  • Forum organized: 24-25 March 2016

Contestations of Memory in Southeast Asia – Roxana Waterson and Kwok Kian-Woon (eds)

ContestationsOfMemoryInSEAContestations of Memory in Southeast Asia applies a new theoretical literature on social memory to remembered events in Burma, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines and Indonesia. Highlighting connections between theorizing based on European examples and unresolved memory issues in East and Southeast Asia, the authors show how comparative study of the interpenetration of politics and lived bodily experience, of communal and personal memories, and of dominant and suppressed narratives, can yield insights into the human potential to become either perpetrators, victims or bystanders.

The memories found within different groups in any society are open to negotiation, suppression, contestation, or revision in the ever-evolving politics of the present. The searching and close-grained analyses of contemporary issues found in the volume vividly illustrate the essentially plural and multivocal nature of social memories, and demonstrate the intricate connection between transnational, national and sub-national politics. Readers seeking a more nuanced and complex understanding of the past and of its continued relevance to the present and future, will find here much food for thought.

Roxana Waterson is an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology at the National University of Singapore.
Kwok Kian-Woon is an Associate Professor in the Division of Sociology, School of Humanities and Social Sciences at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
