Cross-border scholarship on Northeast India-Burma-Yunnan relations and interaction

The India-China Corridor project has held its third workshop, engaging with emerging scholarship on cross-border interaction and relations across Northeast India, Burma/Myanmar, and Yunnan in China. The first two workshops were held in Guwahati, Assam in India in 2017 and in Kunming, Yunnan in China in spring 2018. The workshop in Kyitkyinga was the first time ever that an international research meeting on this scale was held in the Kachin State in Burma. Participants from China, Burma, India, Bangladesh, Singapore, Japan, Great Britain, the Netherlands, and Sweden met for four days in Myitkyina. The workshop was organized by the project team, including Gunnel Cederlöf at the Centre for Concurrences in Colonial and Postcolonial Studies, Linnaeus University, Willem van Schendel at Amsterdam University, Mandy Sadan at the School of Oriental and African Studies, and Dan Smyer Yu at Yunnan Minzu University, in collaboration with the Kachinland Research Centre at Myitkyina headed by Danseng Lawn. It was supported by the British Academy and the Swedish Research Council.
