  • [halshs-02069979] The Macau-Liverpool Border
    11 mai 2019
    Some of today’s Macau landmarks stood in more solitary splendour in 1978 and were visible from afar. I stayed in the other-worldly Bela Vista Hotel for a night; while not too expensive, on a student budget I could not afford to stay longer. I recall that the staff, as in other hotels, would not accept tips. I’d visited Lisbon two years before, at the height of the mid-1970s Portuguese Carnation Revolutionary fervour where gratuities had, temporarily, disappeared, along with the old fascist order. But I hadn’t expected the tip-less culture to have been extended to Macau; but there again China’s Cultural Revolution had also left its scent. I stayed mostly in a cheap, ramshackle guest house on the island of Coloane, not far from the Tam Kung temple. The guesthouse, more a sort of a dormitory, was on a low promontory by the shore. The sunset over the channel that separated Coloane from China was almost magical.
  • [hal-02069639] China Imagined
    16 mars 2019
    How did China become China? And where is it leading us? We talk as if it had always existed: eternal China with its 5,000 years of uninterrupted history. But the name ‘China’ was first used by sixteenth-century Europeans, and its Chinese equivalent, Zhongguo, only gained currency in the mid-1800s. China Imagined is a thoughtful exploration of the idea of China, from the naming and mapping of its territory and peoples to the creation and rise of the modern nation-state. China’s early history describes a multilingual space, ruled by a homogeneous elite with its own minority culture—a far cry from Maoism’s national mass culture, or Xi Jinping’s state-controlled digital society today. Gregory Lee traces this complex, diverse entity’s evolution since the Opium Wars into a China made in ‘our’ image. Today, it is a great power integral to the global system, whether it comes to climate change, security or inequality. Given this rapid convergence with the West, Xi’s China holds up a mirror to our own nations. Trump’s America, Putin’s Russia and post-Brexit Europe all betray echoes of ’the Chinese Dream’. If China is a product of Westernisation, is it now the West’s turn to become China?
  • [halshs-02069891] Xi Jinping’s ‘China Dream’, technological nightmare and ‘hoodlum diplomacy’
    6 mai 2019
    Xi Jinping’s spectacular China Dream has morphed into an unmediated show of fear: the society of the spectacular Incubus. As Debord might have said, its spectacular poverty now presents itself as an immense accumulation of nightmares. (Article based on a chapter in China Imagined: From European Fantasy to Spectacular Power, published, 29 November 2018, by Hurst, London.)
  • [halshs-02069899] Le Rêve chinois en 2018
    3 avril 2019
    Pour des centaines de millions de personnes, le Rêve chinois s’est changé en cauchemar. Dans l’Europe de la Renaissance, les cauchemars étaient associés à « l’incube ». Le démon se serait couché sur ses victimes pendant qu’elles dormaient pour les suffoquer. L'état Chinois, maintenant technologiquement bien équipé, se comporte en Incube du XXIème siècle.

    If ‘China’, as Lee argues, is a product of Westernisation, then the West is itself in the process of becoming China. How did China become China? And where is it leading us?

But the name ‘China’ was first used by sixteenth-century Europeans, and its Chinese equivalent, Zhongguo, only gained currency in the mid-1800s.

  • [hal-01958204] Daniel Defoe, La Grande Tempête. Traduction et édition critique par Nathalie Bernard et Emmanuelle Peraldo
    23 janvier 2019
    Daniel Defoe, La Grande Tempête. Traduction et édition critique par Nathalie Bernard et Emmanuelle Peraldo, Collection Littératures du Monde, sous la direction d'Alain Montandon et Françoise Lavocat, Classiques Garnier, 2018. N°24, 244 p. Ouvrage publié avec le soutien du Laboratoire d'Etudes et de Recherche sur le Monde Anglophone (LERMA, Aix-Marseille Université) et de l'Institut d'Etudes Transculturelles et Transtextuelles (IETT, Université Jean Moulin - Lyon III) La Grande Tempête est la traduction de The Storm (1704), ouvrage publié par Daniel Defoe quelques mois après la violente tempête survenue à la fin de l'année 1703. Souvent considéré par la critique comme l'un des premiers écrits journalistiques de grande ampleur, le texte prend la forme d'un recueil d'environ 70 lettres qui témoignent des dégâts causés par cette catastrophe naturelle, ainsi que de divers cas de saluts attribués à la Providence divine.
  • [halshs-02069866] The Digitization of the Archives of the Lyon Sino-French Institute 里昂中法大學 – Opportunities, Risks and Ghosts
    3 avril 2019
    The Institut franco-chinois de Lyon (Lyon Sino-French Institute, hereafter IFCL), a constituent part of the then University of Lyon, was an institution dedicated to the education and welfare of students from China. Its stated purpose was to mentor Chinese students and ensure their integration into the French higher education system. Subsequent to the unhappy experience of the Chinese Study-Work movement in France, the IFCL project was initiated by important intellectual figures from the Chinese “New Culture Movement” including Cai Yuanpei 蔡元培 (1868-1940), Li Shizeng 李石曾 (1881-1973) and Wu Zhihui 吳稚暉 (1865-1953). Founded in 1921, the Institute hosted 473 students during the twenty-five years of its existence. After their studies in France, graduates returned to China to provide the skilled intellectuals China lacked. At least a quarter of them obtained a doctorate. Many of them had outstanding careers as writers, artists, scientists, jurists, university professors or politicians, and made a considerable contribution to the advancement of the Chinese nation-state and its modern intellectual and epistemological landscape. The Institute left an extensive collection of documents, which are now the property of Lyon’s Jean Moulin University (Université Jean Moulin-Lyon 3). The main technical goal of my project will be the organization, classification, digitization, storage, and production of online database of the archives. The resultant digitized research data will constitute the core object of this particular research project, and also provide essential data for further projects. The collection constitutes a unique example of the cultural and scientific dimensions of the heritage of global modernity. Central to the project is the hypothesis that the Institute not only contributed to the development of the Chinese nation-state, but was was indeed also constitutive of the new national consciousness.
