CSEAS Lecture. Communal Violence in Myanmar: Roundtable Discussion

Monday, March 27, 2017
12:00-1:30 PM
Room 1636 School of Social Work Building Map
Since 2012, Myanmar has experienced recurrent, sporadic, collective acts of lethal violence, realized through repeated public expressions that Muslims constitute an existential threat to Buddhists. Much of this has been directed at those who identify as Rohingya, but it has not been limited to this category. The panelists discuss the narratives, genealogies and typologies of this violence, drawing on scholarship from South and Southeast Asia.
