Active Minds Seminar

Myanmar (Burma)

Thursday, November 15th | 6:30 pm | Sam Gary Library

Formerly known as Burma, Myanmar is the second largest country in Southeast Asia. Colonized by Britain in the 19th century, the country achieved its independence in 1948 and has been involved in internal sectarian conflict ever since. The country's modern history has been a mixture of military rule and human rights abuses. Recent events, suggesting an emergence of democracy have been marred by reports of the Buddhist majority government targeting the Rohingya, a Muslim minority population. Join Active Minds as we explore the country's history and importance in the world today.
