M. Fiskesjö.

Burma (Myanmar) is rapidly gaining in importance, with political change on several fronts, following on decades of military rule, and a new openness to contacts with Western countries. This seminar is intended as an introduction to modern and historical Burma, and also as a new beginning in Cornell-Burma contacts. Through a series of guest presentations by experts from various academic fields and on a range of aspects, and also through critical readings about Burma, we will learn about history, religion, politics, ethnic minority issues, and more. The seminar is created for upper level undergraduates and graduate students and will provide an important starting point for comparativists, Asian studies students in different specializations, and all those in interdisciplinary studies interested Asia.
