14th International Burma Studies Conference

Political Crisis, Social Resilience and Cultural Vibrance in Myanmar

New Dates: September 16 - 19, 2021
​Northern Illinois University
At the Center for Burma Studies, we are delighted to announce the new theme for the rescheduled biennial International Burma Studies Conference.

We welcome your participation​ to one of the longest-running international conferences on the country.
​The extended deadline for submission is May 20, 2021.

Important Announcement

The Center for Burma Studies made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 conference to 2021. We continue to follow the safety protocols set in place by the leadership at Northern Illinois University. 

At this time, it is still unclear when a gathering of 300 scholars can take place on campus. We will announce in the near future the form (hybrid or fully online) of the conference.

This website remains the best place to stay up-to-date. The call for papers submission form is active. Scholars who submitted an abstract or panel for the 2020 conference should resubmit their abstracts by the new deadline.
