「ゾミア研究会」

こういうのも回ってきた。「ゾミア」は和訳も出たが、ジェームズ・スコットたちが「意図的に国家を持とうとしない世界」に
与えた名前である。しかし中国の「生番」「熟番」をRaw and Cooked Barbariansと訳すのは面白いね。

*************************************************************

Please join the upcoming two-part seminar:

*“Ethnic relations and ideas of civilization in China’s Southwest”*


*Dr. Magnus Fiskesjö* (Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology, Cornell University).


The events are hosted by the "Zomia" Study Group Seminars. Anyone is welcome to attend.


Dr. Fiskesjö’s research concerns ethnic relations and ideas of civilization, in particular Chinese civilizing ideals casting minorities or barbarians in supportive roles, and with notions of sovereignty, citizenship, and state organization thrown in the mix. Hi research relates to some of the classical anthropological debates regarding the history and dynamics of center-periphery and ethnic relations, especially in the China-Burma borderlands, where he conducted ethnographic and historical research during the 1990s, and most recently in 2006. His ethnographic research has mainly concerned Wa cultural areas (the Wa are Mon-Khmer speaking people, living at the "edge of empire"), the conditions of their historical autonomy, and the place of sacrifice and religion in local and regional history and economy. Other aspects of my research involve ethnic minorities and majority-minority relations in other parts of China, including the Southern Great Wall in Hunan-Guizhou, and in neighboring Southeast Asian nations, especially Burma, Laos, and Thailand.

*Part 1. *

*June 8 (Mon), 16**:**00-18**:**00*

*“The Wa former headhunters of the China-Burma frontier”*


Place:Tonan-tei (Room 201), Inamori Foundation Memorial Building, Kyoto University


Abstract: There is a longstanding view of the Wa people of the Burma-China frontier, which juxtaposes the contradictory notions that the Wa were both "primitive" headhunters and opium exporters, at the same time. In this presentation, revisiting Wa history and society, I suggest an alternative understanding which requires dispensing altogether with the notion of primitive headhunting, which I think is a recent, and misleading, idea. I argue that headhunting, is ―like the opium export trade―a recent historical phenomenon contingent on the integration of the Wa into a larger regional system, likely only since the mid-to-late 19th century. Also, Wa "headhunting" was not a hunt for heads, but warfare that involved trophy-taking, itself a widespread global phenomenon. At the same time, like the trophies of the past, the notion of "primitive" itself was not only deployed by outsiders such as the Chinese for the Wa, but also by the Wa themselves, in a curious modern-era dialectic that continues to this day.


*Part 2. *

*June 9 (Tue) 11**:**30- 13**:**30 *(Please bring your own lunch)

*“**The Southern Great Wall: Drawing the Line Between Raw and Cooked
Barbarians”*


Place:Tonan-tei (Room 201), Inamori Foundation Memorial Building, Kyoto University


Abstract: The northern Great Walls of China are widely known, but the project of the Ming and Qing imperial Chinese courts to copy the northern wall-building on the southern "barbarian" frontier remains almost unknown in scholarly circles. In this paper I review the Ming and Qing-era history of the construction and maintenance of an anti-barbarian wall, the "Miao frontier border wall," in what today is the Miao and Tujia borderland of the modern Hunan and Guizhou provinces. I discuss various theories put forward mainly by Chinese local historians to explain this wall project, which started in the 15th century. I also present my own understanding that the wall represented an attempt to further the assimilation of so-called "Cooked" (熟 shu) barbarians "inside" the wall, while also at the same time imposing an important symbolic framing as "Raw" (生 sheng) barbarians of the people left beyond the wall. Finally, I discuss the curious present-day afterlife of the "Southern Great Wall" as a tourist attraction.
