Charlotte Galloway is attending the International Burma Studies conference in Singapore, 1-3 August. Held biannually, the conference is the major forum for scholars working across all fields relating to Burma to meet and share their research. Charlotte is an invited participant for the round table panel discussion on ‘Conserving and sharing Burma’s heritage’. She spent time in the first half of this year while in OSP researching, cataloguing and teaching museology at the Sri Ksetra Museum, and Field School of Archaeology at Pyay. Sri Ksetra is one of the ‘Pyu City Sites’ which was inscribed onto UNESCO’s World Heritage List on June 22 this year, Burma’s first listing. Charlotte has been researching in Burma for 15 years, with a specialist focus on the region’s early Buddhist art.
Sally Bamford, Centre for Art History and Art Theory PhD student, is also presenting at the conference, on her Nat spirit imagery research.
