Call for Papers
The Independent Journal of Burmese Scholarship announces a Workshop/Conference on the Theme:
Religious and Cultural Inclusion and Exclusion in Myanmar History
In view of the traumatic political events of the past year, we anticipate that a substantial number of papers will examine Islam and the Rohingya issue. We emphasize, however, that we welcome papers that examine other ethnic and religious groups that fall within this theme.
The new book, Buddhist Visual Cultures, Rhetoric, and Narrative in Late Burmese Wall Paintings (Hong Kong University Press, 2018), by Dr. Alexandra Green, Henry Ginsburg Curator for Southeast Asia at the British Museum, will be launched 9 May, 17:00-20:00, at the Centre of South East Asian Studies, SOAS, University of London.
