Public Memory : James Scott

Invitation to a lecture with Professor James C. Scott of Yale UniversityImage

The role of public memory in the transition from a closed, autocratic society to one increasingly linked to global flows of capital and information is just beginning to be explored by Burma scholars, specialists, and indeed the public. These discussions have the potential to animate and clarify the question of how publicly shared memories of the past are implicated in collective and individual acts of commemoration, resistance, and capitulation.

Professor James C. Scott of Yale University and author of influential texts on politics and anthropology in Southeast Asia, including The Art of Not Being Governed: An Anarchist History of Upland Southeast Asia, will give a lecture on the topic of public memory this week at Pansodan Scene.

We cordially invite you to join Professor Scott’s lecture and participate in the discussion by sharing your questions, views, experiences.

At Pansodan Scene, Wednesday, 19 February 2014, 5:00pm-7:00pm. Free & Open to the Public
