Metamorphosis: The Imperial Transformation of Lower Burma, 1850-1940
October 18, 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm
In this presentation, connections are made between and among a broad array of changes associated with British imperial control in Lower Burma. Not only did the advent of British control lead to well-known changes in political authority and economic structure/orientation, but also to profound environmental and demographic changes, to possible psycho-social reconfigurations, and, perhaps most troubling, to deleterious biometric changes in the Burmese population.
