Edited by Catherine Raymond from NIU’s Center for Burma Studies and Jane M. Ferguson from Australian National University, The Journal of Burma Studies seeks to publish the best scholarly research focused on Burma/Myanmar and its minority and diasporic cultures from a variety of disciplines, ranging from art history and religious studies, to economics and law.

“We are pleased to partner with the NIU Center for Burma Studies on this important and unique journal,” said UH Press Interim Director and Publisher Joel Cosseboom.

Ferguson looks forward to collaborating with UH Press to launch innovative and engaging issues of The Journal of Burma Studies. “University of Hawaiʻi Press has consistently produced some of the most exciting publications on Southeast Asia as well as Burma/Myanmar Studies, so I am delighted that (the journal) will now work with them,” she said.

The journal is jointly sponsored by the Burma Studies Group and the NIU Center for Burma Studies. Published since 1997, the journal draws together research and critical reflection on Burma/Myanmar from scholars across Asia, North America and Europe. Subscribe to the journal.
