    Conference, symposium - Economy

    Croissance, innovation et inégalités

    Leçons japonaises pour le monde

    Ce colloque international a pour ambition de discuter certains des grands défis économiques, politiques et sociétaux du XXIe siècle - la croissance, l’innovation et les inégalités -, avec la conviction qu’il est possible d’apprendre des réponses japonaises en la matière, notamment du point de vue des politiques publiques. Il est crucial de se pencher sur ces questions dans le contexte de montée des incertitudes et des contestations sous différentes formes. Dans une perspective pluridisciplinaire et en croisant les regards France-Japon, cet événement rassemblera des personnalités des mondes académiques, institutionnels et de l’entreprise.

    Taoist Studies in France - critical historiographies

    Historiographies critiques

    L'objectif de cette journée d'étude est de dresser un premier panorama exploratoire sur le développement des études taoïstes en France. Comment les savoirs sur le taoïsme ont évolué, du terrain aux textes, des textes aux terrains, avec le développement des sciences humaines et sociales ? Quelles influences se sont exercées sur ce champ.

    Policing port cities during the colonial era : Tianjin and Shanghai interaction between Western and Oriental police forces, 1860-1945

    Limits of the western police model in China

    In the past 20 years, the Research Center on Shanghai History (ECNU) and the Lyon Institute of East Asian Studies (IAO) have established close cooperative relations : joint projects, joint publications, joints conferences, as well as the co-training of graduate students have become significant and regular markers of increasingly close relationships. On this basis we hope to further co-promote Shanghai and Tianjin as centers of new urban history and social order. This project will avail new archival materials (municipalities archives), memoirs of policemen, photography, illustrated journals, correspondances, police reports etc…

    Art History for Artists: Interactions Between Scholarly Discourse and Artistic Practice in the 19th Century

    The development of art history as a discipline during the 19th century has been variously associated with the politics of national identity, the needs of a growing bourgeois public in search of cultural capital, or of an expanding art market. However, the role of art training, and art practitioners themselves in the shaping of the discipline remains unexamined. Courses in art history had been systematically introduced in the curricula of art and architecture academies since the late 18th century, and spaces of art education count among the first institutional homes of the discipline, well before the establishment of autonomous university chairs. This conference aims to explore the interactions and productive tensions between art practice and art scholarship in the 19th century.

    Causes and Connections. On Divination and other Inquiries into Nature and Humans

    International Colloquium in Honor of Professor Geoffrey E. R. Lloyd

    Dans le cadre du PRI « Pratiquer le comparatisme : terrains, textes, artefacts », ce colloque international réunit ethnologues, philologues et philosophes autour des travaux de Geoffrey Lloyd et de leur apport à la pratique du comparatisme. En prenant appui notamment sur son ouvrage Cognitive Variations (2007), nous souhaitons interroger le problème de la coexistence de causalités autour d’un même événement, en mettant en perspective des pratiques rituelles saisies en contexte divinatoire et des savoirs prédictifs constitués en corpus de connaissances.

    Individual itineraries and the circulation of scientific and technical knowledge in East Asia (16th-20th centuries)

    How did individuals' geographical mobility contributed the circutation of  knowledge in East Asia (16th-20th centuries)? In China, Korea and Vietnam, the bureaucratic systems dictated a specific mode of mobility of the elites. But the ways in which individual itineraries shaped the circulation of knowledge need to be studied not only for civil servants, but also for various socio-professional groups, such as the scholars privately employed by high officials, craftsmen, medical doctors, traders, Buddhist monks, and emperors themselves. To these groups should be added the actors of the globalisation of knowledge during this period.

    History of science, technology and medicine in East Asia

    Ce séminaire se veut un lieu de présentation de leurs travaux en cours par des chercheurs travaillant sur l’histoire des sciences, des techniques et de la médecine en Asie orientale, région où le chinois classique a longtemps été le principal véhicule des savoirs d’élite. Il s’adresse aux chercheurs et étudiants spécialistes de l’Asie ou historiens des sciences, des techniques et de la médecine. Nous nous y intéresserons autant aux savoirs « traditionnels » de la Chine impériale et de ses voisins qu’aux périodes moderne et contemporaine.

    L’œuvre scientifique des missionnaires en Asie

    Des missionnaires chrétiens, de divers ordres et de multiples pays d'Europe, ont souvent été les premiers à explorer des régions inconnues de l'Asie. Une journée d'études est proposée pour cerner l'extension et les limites de la relation culturelle et scientifique qu'ils ont contribué à établir entre les deux continents. Trois domaines offrent un intérêt particulier : étude de langues ; nouvelles connaissances et échanges scientifiques en astronomie, cartographie, histoire naturelle, etc. ; informations sur l'histoire, les littératures, les coutumes, les religions.Prenant place dans une série de réunions organisées conjointement depuis 2006 par l’Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres et la Société asiatique, cette journée entend témoigner de l’esprit commun qui les anime au service de l’orientalisme conçu de la façon la plus ouverte.
