The coming International Burma Studies Conference will be held in France, at l’Institut de Recherche sur le Sud-Est Asiatique (IRSEA-CNRS), Université de Provence, Marseille, 6th-9th July, 2010.

We invite 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.

A list of organised panels is available at the Panel tab.

Individual papers, for which a 250 word abstract is requested, are welcome and will be duly integrated into the conference sessions/panels by the organizers. The deadline for the individual paper proposals is 30 March 2010.

Please send your title and abstract to:
