Burma Studies Conference 2010: Burma in the Era of Globalization
The coming International Burma Studies Conference will be held in France, at Universite de Provence, Marseille, 6th-9th July, 2010.The conference is co-organized by Institut de Recherche sur le Sud-Est Asiatique (IRSEA-CNRS), Ecole francaise d'Extreme-Orient (EFEO), Centre Asie du Sud-Est (CASE-CNRS), Institut national des Langues et Civilisations Orientales (INALCO) and Center for Burma Studies (NIU DeKalb IL USA).
We invite panel participants to focus their proposals on the theme of understanding Burma/Myanmar’s position vis-a-vis processes of globalization. How does globalization contribute to change – or not – in Burma and also to our perceptions of Burma? Such an overview should be consequent to a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approach by specialists in anthropology, sociology, linguistics, political science, economics, history and archaeology; as well as in religion, literature, art and architecture.
Interested participants are asked to organize and submit panel proposals with 500-word abstracts by 1 December 2009.
Individual papers, for which a 250 word abstract is requested, are also welcome and will be duly integrated into the conference sessions by the organizers. The deadline for the individual paper proposals is 30 March 2010.
In addition to the title and abstract of the proposed panels and papers, please include the contributors’ names and academic affiliations, mailing address, email address, and specify equipment needs for the presentations.
