Résumé : Investigations into 19th century Chinese indentured migration — the nominally paid procurement of peasants for export labour — tend to leave women and children inadequately represented. Inclusive of all those displaced, this presentation focuses on the integral components of various trafficking networks, from profit-driven traders to state institutionalisation. By putting into dialogue various networks of Chinese mobility usually studied separately, this study will problematize current conceptualizations about the « coolie trade » and Chinese indentured migration, and shed new light onto the place of Chinese labour migration in global dynamics related to the configuration and decline of the colonial world.
