Burma book launch

Date: 
Monday, June 11, 2012 - 16:00

NIAS Press is pleased to announce the publication of two new books on Burma. The first of these is the latest volume published in our Gendering Asia series:

The Authority of Influence : Women and Power in Burmese History
Jessica Harriden

First book to explore the relationship between gender and power throughout Burmese history from pre-colonial times to the present day.

In celebration of its publication and the ongoing success of the Gendering Asia series, an informal book launch will be held at NIAS. This will comprise:

. A short talk by Kyoko Kusakabe on internally displaced people in Burma and her reaction to an advance copy of the book that she received.
. Brief comments by Gerald Jackson, Editor in Chief, NIAS Press.

Refreshments and nibbles will be provided plus copies of the book will be on display (and available for purchase by attendees at a discounted price).

This event will be part of the workshop "Re-visiting Gender in Development", being held at NIAS all next week, but will be a public session taking place outside the conference room, in the main area at NIAS. All interested attendees are welcome.

Venue: NIAS main area, 3rd floor, Leifsgade 33
Time: Monday 11 June, 16:00

Attendees may also be interested to look at the second Burma book just published by NIAS Press. This is:

Modern China-Myanmar Relations : Dilemmas of Mutual Dependence
David I. Steinberg and Hongwei Fan
First book-length study examining the increasingly important and dynamic relationship between China and Myanmar.
