CFP> Workshop: Religious and Cultural Inclusion and Exclusion in Myanmar History

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.
