Serving and Working for Others: Negotiating Legal Status and Social Relations of Household Laborers in Late Imperial China

Claude Chevaleyre (2020), "Serving and Working for Others: Negotiating Legal Status and Social Relations of Household Laborers in Late Imperial China", in Journal of Global Slavery, Volume 5, Issue 2, juillet 2020. P.170-203.

Over the past decades, “wage labor” has been a lingering issue in studies on the development patterns of late imperial China. The legal reconfiguration of the category of “hired laborers” (gugong 僱工) between 1588 and 1788, in particular, has been foregrounded as a salient manifestation of the “incipient capitalism” going hand in hand with the emergence of a “free” labor market and with the decline of bound labor.

Un « paradigme Fukushima » au cinéma

Élise Domenach, Maîtresse de conférences en études cinématographiques, École normale supérieure de Lyon, Membre de l’Institut d’Asie Orientale, "Un « paradigme Fukushima » au cinéma", Article du mois, Gis Asie, juin 2020. URL : http://www.gis-reseau-asie.org/fr/un-paradigme-fukushima-au-cinema

Neuf années se sont écoulées depuis que le tremblement de terre et le tsunami du 11 mars 2011 ont entraîné la catastrophe nucléaire la plus grave depuis Tchernobyl dans la centrale de Fukushima Daiichi (Tohoku, Japon). Les cinéastes japonais s’en sont bien vite saisis, et le cinéma qui est né de cette catastrophe a durablement transformé le medium lui-même, ainsi que le monde qu’il projetait. Nous prendrons pour exemple de ces transformations Tenzo de Tomita Katsuya (Semaine de la critique, Cannes 2019), l’un des films les plus marquants de ces dernières années sur le sujet.

Historians at the Court: How Cultural Expertise in Qing Law Contributes to the Invention of Hong Kong “Chinese Customary Law”

Jérôme Bourgon (2020), Historians at the Court: How Cultural Expertise in Qing Law Contributes to the Invention of Hong Kong “Chinese Customary Law”, Law and History Review, Cambridge University Press, Volume 38, Numéro 1, Février 2020. pp. 85-98

This paper relies on the narrative of a renowned historian of Qing law from China mainland who has been called by Hong Kong High Court in 2007, to witness as an expert in “Chinese customary law.” At the opening of the trial, he recognized one well-known and estimated colleague from Taiwan in the expert engaged by the other party. During one week, these two legal historians called up a vast array of knowledge in Chinese history, culture, and law, to ensure the triumph of their party. [Lire la suite]

Handbooks and Anthologies for Officials in Imperial China

Claude Chevaleyre & Jérôme Bourgon (2020), notices dans Pierre-Étienne Will, Handbooks and Anthologies for Officials in Imperial China: a Descriptive and Critical Bibliography (2 vols). Brill, 2020

The 1,165 entries of Handbooks and Anthologies for Officials in Imperial China by Pierre-Étienne Will and collaborators provide a descriptive list of extant manuscript and printed works—mainly from the Song, Ming, and Qing dynasties—created with the aim to instruct officials and other administrators of imperial China about the technical and ethical aspects of government, and to provide tools and guides to help with the relevant procedures. Both generalist and specialized texts are considered. Among the latter, such disciplines as the administration of justice, famine relief, and the military receive particular attention. Each entry includes the publishing history of the work considered (including modern editions), an analysis of contents, and a biographical sketch of the author.

Dictionnaire biographique du haut Moyen Âge chinois

Claude Chevaleyre (2020), 107 notices (traduites de l'anglais) in François Martin et Damien Chaussende (dir.), Dictionnaire biographique du Haut Moyen-Âge chinois : Culture, politique et religion de la fin des Han à la veille des Tang (IIIe-VIe siècles), Paris : Les Belles Lettres, 2020.

Le haut Moyen Âge de la Chine, qui s’étend du IIIe au VIe siècle de notre ère, fut une période particulièrement troublée sur le plan politique. Elle vit en effet s’établir sur le sol chinois une vingtaine d’États plus ou moins éphémères, dont certains furent fondés par des populations étrangères venues des steppes nordiques. Ces quelques siècles n’en furent pas moins extrêmement riches et bouillonnants du point de vue culturel. Ils virent en particulier le bouddhisme s’acclimater au sol chinois et le taoïsme se constituer en véritable religion organisée. La littérature connut d’importants développements, notamment dans le domaine de la poésie et de la prosodie. L’art bouddhique connut un âge d’or et donna lieu à de splendides réalisations sous la dynastie des Wei du Nord. La culture de cour qui se constitua dans les États chinois du Sud exerça quant à elle une influence profonde sur les arts, qui devait se maintenir pendant des siècles, notamment sous les Tang...

Sold People: Traffickers and Family Life in North China, written by Johanna S. Ransmeier, 2017

Claude Chevaleyre (2020), "Sold People: Traffickers and Family Life in North China, written by Johanna S. Ransmeier, 2017", book Review in T'oung Pao, Volume 105: Issue 5-6, pp. 636–643.

Sold People is a rarity. Based on her Ph.D. thesis,1 Johanna Ransmeier’s first monograph is the kind of book that sets a milestone and opens a new research field. In the space of 395 pages, Sold People takes the reader on a fascinating journey into the often-overlooked world of slaving and human trafficking in northern China (1870s-1930s). Although the topic has long been a recurring issue in the field of social history of the late Qing and Republican periods, few scholars had attempted to address it comprehensively and on its own right.2 For this reason alone, Johanna Ransmeier’s remarkable work will remain a landmark study and, it is to be hoped, inspire a new generation of social historians of China.

The Abolition of Slavery and the Status of Slaves in Late Imperial China

Claude Chevaleyre (2019), “The Abolition of Slavery and the Status of Slaves in Late Imperial China”. In The Palgrave Handbook of Bondage and Human Rights in Africa and Asia. Dir. Alessandro Stanziani and Gwyn Campbell, Palgrave, 2020, , p. 57-82.

In the West, human bondage remains synonymous with the Atlantic slave trade. But large slave systems in Africa and Asia predated, co-existed, and overlapped with the Atlantic system—and have persisted in modified forms well into the twenty-first century, posing major threats to political and economic stability within those regions and worldwide. This handbook examines the deep historical roots of unfree labour in Africa and Asia along with its contemporary manifestations. It takes an innovative longue durée perspective in order to link the local and global, the past and present. Contributors trace shifting forms of forced labour in the region since circa 1800, connecting punctual shocks such as environmental crisis, conflict, market instability, and crop failure to human security threats such as impoverishment, violence, migration, kidnapping, and enslavement. Together, these chapters illuminate the historical and contemporary dimensions of bondage in Africa and Asia, with important implications for the fight against modern-day bondage and human trafficking.
