Religious and Cultural Inclusion and Exclusion in Myanmar History △
12–14 December 2018
Chiang Mai University
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.
As a journal devoted to giving voice to public intellectuals and the civic space vital to rational discourse on the most important issues facing Burmese society, we invite applications from intellectuals who can contribute to an original, rational, and historically informed dialogue on this issue. The participants selected will present their papers at an intensive three day workshop to be held at Chiang Mai University. Final papers, revised on the basis of the discussion and debate, will be published (both physically and digitally) in an issue of the IJBS. We hope and anticipate that this issue of the journal will represent an important advance in the understanding of religion and culture in the political life of Burma, contemporary and historical.
The workshop will be held at Chiang Mai University, 12–14 December 2018. Participants will be the guests of CMU’s Regional Center for Social Science and Sustainable Development.
We anticipate inviting between 12 and 20 people on the basis of the quality of their applications
