バングラデシュ研究会・ゾミア研究会

京都大学でのイベントのお知らせです。今月下旬(3月21日と23日)に、東南アジア地域研究研究所に、ウィレム・ファン・スヘンデル(Willem van
Schendel)教授(アムステルダム大学)をお招きし、二回発表していただきます。
ファン・スヘンデル氏は、バングラデシュ近代史研究の第一人者であると共に、アジアを中心とする国境の比較研究もリードしてきました。また、東南アジア研究と南アジア研究を主な文脈として、地域研究のあり方について新鮮な視点を繰り返し提示しています。(「ゾミア」という造語を最初に提案したのもvan
Schendel氏です。)

*Abstract* for “Rethinking Flows, Spaces and Visualisation in Asian Studies” by Willem van Schendel


The flows and networks that shape the lives of billions of Asians develop, fragment and recombine continually. A more systematic understanding of these dynamics is indispensable for the future of Asian studies. We know much about the vast and long-lived networks that historically drew large parts of Asia together. Such key networks sustained the spread of Buddhism and Islam, the rise of empires, and patterns of mass migration and long-distance trade. Understanding these is imperative for anyone wishing to sketch the broad contours of inter-Asian connectivity today.

But these connections hardly provide a full picture.
Attention to sweeping interconnections should not impede the exploration of finer details and more quirky linkages, not least because the major inter-Asian networks bypassed many parts of Asia. How did and do these parts connect to other spaces?

I use the example of an Asian society that was barely involved in the sweeping interconnections to argue for a repositioning of the study of Asia that goes beyond simply linking the core concerns of ‘area studies.’ This society sits astride two major Asian regions: South Asia and Southeast Asia. The literature constructs it as isolated, peripheral, and, until very recently, without important external connections.

I challenge this view and try to demonstrate the remarkable fluidity of networks and how they recombine in unexpected ways. Paying closer attention to such recombinations may advance the study of Asia. Unfamiliar connections radiating from the ‘fault lines’ of Asia knowledge – from the borderlands between the conventional regions of area studies – can provide a starting point.

17:00 – 18:00 Discussion



*Abstract* for “Fragmented Sovereignty and Unregulated Flows” by Willem van Schendel

In recent years, the idea of the Silk Road has been reconceptualised as an inter-state enterprise led by China – a politically and culturally sanitised venture in which engineering feats and economic planning will lead to a ‘win-win attempt for all.’ In this talk I look at the frailties of such technocratic planning in view of flows and networks that states cannot control, or even clearly perceive. I consider an ‘economic corridor’
that links the overland and maritime Silk Roads – the stretch of land connecting Kunming and Kolkata across Myanmar and Bangladesh. This corridor presents many of the obstacles that the ‘New Silk Road’ is likely to face, notably distrust among states, implementation deficits, fragmented sovereignty and the vigour of unregulated flows across international borders. My presentation suggests that the plan, far from offering a ‘win-win’ solution, will produce unintended and unpredictable outcomes with many losers.
