CFP : 13th International Burma Studies Conference

CFP : 13th International Burma Studies Conference :

Distant Past(s), Latest News : Scholarly Insights on Burma/Myanmar, 3-5 August 2018, Bangkok

Under the auspices of the Center for Burma Studies (Northern Illinois University, US)

Since Myanmar began its bumpy path to democratization,  the global media discourse has been dominated by actors from the business, political, and civil society spheres. Yet it is a more crucial time than ever for academic and scholarly voices to share their insights and knowledge and play a role in the Myanmar’s development.  With this purpose, the Board of Trustees of the Burma Studies Foundation, the Burma Studies Group, and the Center for Burma Studies cordially invite you to participate in the 13th International Burma Studies Conference in Bangkok from August 3-5, 2018.

Taking an inclusive and multidisciplinary approach, the conference will examine all scholarly aspects of Burma/Myanmar studies in the aim of presenting a multi-faceted approach of the country at this turning point in its history. Recent political and economic events -including ongoing conflicts in Rakhine and Kachin State- will be given due, as well as development in the arts and the sciences. Therefore, research papers in fields such as anthropology, history, archaeology, art history, heritage studies, international relations, political sciences, economy, religious studies, environment and development studies, public health, linguistics and literature, music are all welcome.
