Call for Papers
We are now accepting submissions
Deadline to Submit: April 30, 2020
Contact the conveners at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Board of Trustees of the Burma Studies Foundation, the Burma Studies Group and the Center for Burma Studies cordially invite you to participate in this exciting conference! We invite papers or multi-media presentations on all aspects of Burma/Myanmar Studies, broadly defined, including (but not limited to) anthropology, art history, environmental studies, health, history, literature, linguistics, music, political science, popular culture, religious studies, sociology and urban planning.
In addition to the academic conference, the Center for Burma Studies will also be hosting a series of cultural events.
We welcome individual participants to submit their proposed paper in the form of a title and 200 max. word abstract/summary, pasted into the webform by April 30, 2020. For the conference itself, we will gather individual papers into thematic panels. For individual presenters, please see this panel participation as an opportunity to explore diverse topics and forge new connections; scheduling needs and the variety of submissions can sometimes preclude thematic cohesion of papers.
Accepted participants will be notified on or before May 30, 2020.
Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to seeing you in DeKalb in September!
