Dawa Drolma (Bay Path University), " The Renaissance of Traditional Dzongsar Craft-making in the Meshö Valley: An Insider’s Perspective on New Economic Processes and Identity Transformations in Sino-Tibetan Borderlands "

As a member of a deeply-rooted traditional craft-making family in the Meshö (Sman Shod) Valley of Kham region, I will present the results of my ongoing fieldwork and academic study on the renaissance of Buddhist craft-making that is beginning to flourish in the Sino-Tibetan borderlands. Meshö is a remote valley in Dergé County (Kandze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture), Sichuan Province, where the majority of its 5,343 residents are agro-pastoralists. The area is famous for the monastery of Dzongsar, one of the largest monastic universities in Kham during the first half of the twentieth century. In the 1980s, when the renovation of ...

Mark Frank, " Chinese Physiocracy: Kham as Laboratory for the Agrarian Theory of China "

When a nation-state looks to intensive agriculture for its national essence, what are the implications at the local level? This paper looks at agricultural colonization efforts (tunken屯垦) of the Chinese state in Kham during the Republican era (1912-1949) and places these efforts in the context of a national discourse on agrarianism. Chinese nationalists circulated theories about agrarianism (or nongben zhuyi) as a necessary feature of Chinese civilization since ancient times. Elements of imperial Chinese agrarianism, distilled through early modern movements in Japan, France and elsewhere, were reinserted into Chinese nationalist politics under Chiang Kai-shek, resulting in what I call “the ...

Scott Relyea (Hamline University), " Settling Authority: Sichuanese Farmers in Early Twentieth Century Eastern Tibet "

From 1907 to 1911, some 4,000 commoners from the Sichuan Basin ventured west. Enticed by promises of large tracts of uncultivated land and three years of free rent, seeds, animals, and farm implements, they ascended the Tibetan Plateau seeking new lives for their families – and new benefits for a changing China. At the start of the twentieth century, Kham was a borderland on the cusp of political and societal transformation. Situated between Sichuan Province and central Tibet, its polities and population stood at the center of a local struggle for authority between Chengdu and Lhasa, a struggle with regional ...

Fabienne Jagou, " Manchu Officials’ Khams Travel Accounts: Mapping a Course Through a Qing Territory "

Throughout the Qing dynasty (1644-1911), more and more travelers –officials, military and merchants- went to the Southwest border of China and dedicated some of their time to writing travel accounts, poetry, to drawing maps or to sketching what they saw. As such, frontier officials actively contributed to collecting geographical and anthropological data about the border areas. They then provided the Peking Court with first-hand information to help it draw up policies and secure administrative control of the border. Regarding the officials posted to Tibet, their personal writings took the form of travel diaries, notebooks, or poems, and testified mainly to ...

Explorer l'Univers en 3D avec MUSE

Notre compréhension de la formation des premières galaxies, et de leur évolution pendant presque 13 milliards d'années pour aboutir aux galaxies comme la Voie Lactée, a fait un bond considérable depuis une vingtaine d'années. Ces progrès sont dus en grande partie au télescope spatial Hubble qui, depuis 25 ans, nous donne chaque jour les images les plus riches (mais aussi les plus belles!) jamais réalisées de l'univers. Mais une chose manquait encore à Hubble pour sonder efficacement l'univers en profondeur: une troisième dimension! MUSE, un ...
