DE L’OUBLI AU TAPIS ROUGE : LE CINEMA COREEN, UNE ETOILE MONTANTE

Après la courte gloire des lendemains de la libération, le cinéma coréen est tombé dans l’oubli jusque dans les années 1990. Depuis vingt ans, il produit des films connaissant un vif succès à travers le monde entier. Cette trajectoire est à l’opposé de celle du cinéma français qui peine à tenir son rang ancien. Comment expliquer un tel contraste ? Après une analyse argumentée des politiques du cinéma en Corée et en France par Jimmyn Parc, deux jeunes cinéastes, Yoonyoung Choi (Corée) et Stéphane Demoutiers (France), feront part de leurs expériences et vécus, avant de débattre avec la salle.

Avec :
Yoonyoung Choi, cinéaste, Année Zéro
Stéphane Demoustier, cinéaste, Année Zéro
Présentateur : Jimmyn Parc, Sciences Po
Modérateur : Patrick Messerlin, Sciences Po

SILICOSIS AND LABOR CONDITIONS IN ASIA : A COMPARATIVE AND CONNECTED VIEW

With:
Paul-André Rosental, Sciences Po
Bernard Thomann, Inalco
Kuntala Lahiri-Dutt, Crawford School of Public Policy, Australian National University

This round table will be devoted to discussion of the book Silicosis. A World History that, at the time of the conference, will just be published by Johns Hopkins University Press under the direction of Paul-André Rosental.The book relates doubly to Asia. Firstly? silicosis is quintessential "transnational" disease in the sense that the same medical definition was literally "negotiated" in the interwar period, between employers, unions and medical experts, under the auspices the International Labour Office. Since then, international agencies - ILO always but WHO - have played a major role in the promotion and implementation of national legislation in Asia.
Moreover silicosis, which not only hits the miners but workers from many industrial sectors, "traditional" (stonecutters, construction workers, farmers slate pencils) or "modern" (grit Turkish or Bangladeshi jeans), concerned and concerns, more than ever, the Asian countries. The fight against this health scourge, which goes beyond the walls of the mine, factory or workshop to affect the environment, in dependent of new forms of social mobilization.
It is from this dual perspective, comparative and connected, that researchers brought together in this roundtable will review the history and present of silicosis on the Asian continent.

FROM J-POP TO K-POP: THE RISE OF A NEW CULTURAL
HUB IN EAST ASIA


Among the many contents of Hallyu, K-pop and its idol groups are some of its leading and most popular elements. However, in order to better understand the rise of K-pop, it is important to analyze J-pop and its previous dominance in East Asia. Those two trajectories  will be the topic of the discussion.

BEIJING, TIANANMEN 1989 : A PREFIGURATION OF THE « OCCUPY » MOVEMENT?
A testimony by Wang Dan, Student Leader of the 1989 pro-Democracy Movement

With:
Wang Dan, Chinese history professor at National Tsinghua University, in Hsinchu, Taiwan
Chair : Jean-Philippe Béja, Emeritus Research Fellow,  Sciences Po-CERI, CNRS

Wang Dan is addressing the crowd in Tiananmen Square with a headband marked with jueshi characters (hunger strike), grabbing a megaphone, his eyes hidden behind tortoiseshell glasses. The image of this twenty-year-old student has become a symbol of the immense popular movement that shook the Chinese Communist Party in the spring of 1989. Enrolled in the second year of a history degree at the prestigious Beida (Peking University), this son of a professor has become one of the main spokespersons of a movement for democracy, whose viewers around the world have followed the evolution with passion. A brilliant student, he had created in 1988 the Democratic Salon of Beida which had become a hotbed of discussions on the democratization of China. Those discussions lead to the ignition of debates among the younger generation.
Today, Wang Dan has a Ph.D in history from Harvard University. He presently teaches Chinese history at National Tsinghua University, in Hsinchu, Taiwan.
