Call- for papers: Burma Update 2019
We are delighted to announce this call for submissions on the name of the Myanmar Research Centre of the Australian National University. Suggestions by Friday, August 3, 2018, with the meeting to be hosted at the Australian National University on March 15 and 16, 2019. Myanmar Update will take place on Friday, March 15 and Saturday, March 16, 2019 at the Australian National University, Canberra.
Organized by ANU's Myanmar Research Centre, at the College of Asia and the Pacific, the motto of the event is "Living with Myanmar". It is a meeting issue in answer to the challenge that the Myanmar population continues to face as they live with the legacy of sixty years of junta government.
Myanmar has undergone far-reaching changes and reform since 2011. In Myanmar, the establishment of a new administration headed by the National League for Democracy was also a crucial landmark in the country's move towards a more comprehensive state. Yet for many the daily battles have remained the same and have often deteriorated in recent years.
After the last meeting in 2017, Myanmar's troubled border areas have been the scene of an escalation of hostilities that have driven more than 800,000 Rohingya, Kachin, Shan and Karen refugees inward or across the border. This dynamic has hampered Myanmar's political ties with its neighbours and revealed the ruptures at the core of Myanmar's transformation to partially civil government.
Based on the 2017 Update, which dealt with the topic of "Transformations", the 2019 Convention will examine the inconsistencies, equivalencies and complexity of "Living with Myanmar". How is it to be able to cope with the social ities, socialitys and politics that influence the lives of many peoples inside and outside Myanmar?
In what way do humans creatively and productively deal with the historic, geographical and academic complexity of Myanmar? Scientists and practicians are invited to explore these issues, with a focus on how ordinary individuals, civil servants, civil servants and outside stakeholders shape the way they interact with Myanmar. Organizers of the Myanmar Update Konferenz are inviting interested academic, analyst, researcher and experts who are interested in the overall subject "Living with Myanmar" in one of the following thematic areas:
Also we welcome suggestions for our Myanmar speaking panels, which can be presented in one of the previous topics in Burma, in the same form as for English-language contributions. Organizers are particularly interested in receiving suggestions to examine the subtleties and dynamism of life with Myanmar from the city and countryside.
We also welcome documents that are challenging the topic! As well as these meetings, the meeting will feature a policy speech and policy and economic update speeches by guest contributors. Like in earlier updates, the organizers are interested in getting suggestions from new votes, both inside and outside the scientific community.
Of course we are especially interested in new Myanmar vocals. Gladly we advise and accompany attendees who have little knowledge of presenting internationally. Papers in Myanmar will be approved and, if necessary, translations will be available for their participation at the meeting in a non-Burmese class.
You can also submit your abstracts, titles and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. if you have trouble with this page. This summary should not exceed 300 words and should show how the document will deal with the overall topic of "Living with Myanmar". Note that only suggestions of the highest possible content matching the topics of the meeting will be accepted.
The people whose suggestions are approved will be informed within four week after the expiry of the time limit. Organizers of the meeting may also invite people whose contributions are approved to review their suggestions to deal with topics not addressed by other speakers. Convenors are also interested in suggestions for shorts, book presentations or other conference-related events.
Contributors must provide a first complete design of 5000 to 8000 words by 31 January 2019. An updated release proposal will be needed two month after the conference to comply with the release dates for the Myanmar Update session.
