About the Burma Studies Group
The Burma Studies Group (BSG), a subcommittee of the Southeast Asia Council of the Association for Asian Studies, provides a forum for students, scholars and researchers of Burma and Burma studies, broadly defined, and from any disciplinary perspective. Our aim is to be encouraging and inclusive of work on all ethnic nationalities, the region's many cultures, and diasporic studies as well.
