SEAMEO Regional Centre for History and Tradition
Annual Programme
MYANMAR HISTORY FROM MYANMAR
12-18 November 2014

Myanmar history is viewed differently by different people and there are many perspectives and interpretations of Myanmar history but the perspectives and interpretations of Myanmar scholars are not too well known because Myanmar scholars publish mostly in the Myanmar language. The SEAMEO Regional Centre for History and Tradition (SEAMEO CHAT) has a role in putting together a picture of Myanmar's past, its development, and its mosaic of cultures and traditions, especially their strengths and weaknesses and ability to adapt in changing circumstances, as seen from the perspectives of the present community of scholars in the country.

  • Nature of the Programme
  • The programme will run for seven-days from 12 to 18 November 2014 and will consist of a series of lectures and discussions conducted by prominent Myanmar scholars and a five-day trip to the historical cities of Bago, Mandalay and Bagan.
