SEAMEO Regional Centre for History and Tradition
ANNUAL PROGRAMME
MYANMAR HISTORY FROM MYANMAR PERSPECTIVES
23 - 29 November 2015

There have been different perspectives and interpretations on Myanmar history since it was viewed by different people. The perspectives and interpretations of Myanmar scholars, however, are not too well known because Myanmar scholars publish mostly in the Myanmar language. As the 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.
