Mapping Cultural Nationalism: The Scholars of the Burma Research Society, 1910–1935
Author: Boshier, Carol Ann;
This detailed study of the Burma Research Society (founded in 1910 and flourishing until the 1930s), its membership and published output contextualizes the Society within its metropolitan and regional setting, as well as drawing on a broader, transnational intellectual landscape. This timely work on the Society’s intellectual legacy has the potential to inform current debates in Myanmar at a time when the activities of ultra-nationalist groups threaten other religions and ethnicities’ rights as citizens. The study will be of interest to historians and students of colonial Burma as well as anyone interested in the roots of the identity issues currently to the fore in Myanmar.
