In Memoriam
The great Cambodian architect, Vann Molyvann died on 28th September at Siem Reap at the age of 91. Educated in France and with the diploma of the Beaux Arts in 1956, and several times appointed Minister, Vann Molyvann founded theUniversité Royale des Beaux-Arts of Phnom Penh in 1965 while at the same time building the town’s most important monuments: the Monument de l'Indépendance from 1958, the Olympic Stadium, Chatomukh Hall and the Bassac theatre. Exiled shortly after the the coup d’etat which deposed Prince Sihanouk in 1970, Vann Molyvann returned to Cambodia as of 1992. He was the principal mover in the registering of Angkor in World Heritage and the founder of the Autorité pour la Protection du Site et l'Aménagement de la Région d'Angkor (APSARA) in 1995. As he was related to the family of Henri Marchal, Vann Molyvann was very close to EFEO researchers and personnel and was particularly attached to our late lamented colleague Pascal Royère. In April 1994, he masterminded, with Denys Lombard co-signatory of the convention that formalised it, with a four-year delay, the return of the EFEO to Cambodia.

  • Paola Calanca (EFEO), Guillaume Carré (EHESS) and Pierre-Yves Manguin (EFEO):
Seminar EHESS L'Asie maritime : pouvoirs et gens de mer
From the 1980s up until the present day historical studies of maritime Asia have developed a great deal in the Occident, as much on the Indian Ocean as on the China Seas, and have been crossed by the currents which still today influence their development. Although taking on the thematics and methodoligies already firmly established in Europe and the United Sates, these works also often make use of the results of the research that has been done in Asia since the 1960s, which can be considered from more than one point of view as ground breaking attempts at maritime, or transnational history. However, these studies have certainly hinged on economic, political or diplomatic exchanges, and the entire areas of this vast field remain to be explored and amplified.
It would thus seem necessary to take up the records of the maritime history of East Asia and of the South-East Asia Asiatic before the opium wars, beginning with the subject of the appropriation of maritime space by authorities or social groups. While taking into account current debates on global history, this relation with the sea will be studied and situated in the specific temporal and geographical environments appropriate to the different cultural areas of maritime Asia. With an approach aimed at being attentive to the development of local histographies, past and present, we shall begin by considering the maritime population and the neighbouring territories, the better to understand the relationship of local populations and political with the sea, and the relation of those latter with the populations who draw their sustenance from the coast.
from 31st January 2018, Wednesdays from 15H to 17, EHESS (105 Bd. Raspail, salle 10)

The Paris EFEO seminar is on Thursday 5th October from 16h to 18h. Chen Hsi-yuan (Institute of History and Philology, Academia Sinica) speaks on "The many faces of the prison god in late Imperial China", Maison de l'Asie, 22, avenue du Président Wilson, 75116 Paris, Grand salon, 1st floor.

In traditional China, every local government had a facility to accommodate prisoners, and every local jail had a built-in shrine to worship the Prison God. Conceivably, the Prison God was the sole deity available for the inmates to say prayers to. Some might confess their (true) crimes and seek for absolution; others prayed for fair or better treatment behind bars; and some would long for a quick imperial pardon. Those who were suffering from wrongful convictions might pray for eventual exoneration. Since the local magistrate was the chief priest of the official cults as well as in charge of law enforcement, he needed the Prison God's divine assistance in keeping prison inmates in safe and secure custody. Willingly or not, the Prison God was invited to share the responsibility of enforcing the law or preventing miscarriage of justice.
This paper examines the establishment of the Prison God Shrine from the Capital down to local governments, and traces the Prison Gods' worldly identities, including Gao Yao, the Minister for Law of the legendary sage-king Shun; Xiao He, initially a local yamen runner who eventually became the first Chancellor of the Han Empire; and Ašitu, a Manchu warden who released prisoners on a one-day parole to allow them to enjoy their family reunion on the New Year's ev
