Jarrod W. Brown, visiting professor from Berea College, will give a presentation on the current humanitarian crisis in Rakhine State, Burma (Myanmar). This presentation, based on historical research and fieldwork in Rakhine State, situates the current conflict in local history, as well as nationally in the context of Burma's longstanding armed ethnic conflicts, and the country's contemporary quasi-democratic reforms.
