The Traffic in Hierarchy: Masculinity and Its Others in Buddhist Burma

Fri, September 28, 2018 | SAC 5.118

Faculty Book Launch: Ward Keeler

Please join us this Friday for a noon-hour launch party for Professor Ward Keeler's new book.
 
Until its recent political thaw, Burma was closed to most foreign researchers, and fieldwork-based research was rare. In The Traffic in Hierarchy, one of the few such works to appear in recent years, author Ward Keeler combines close ethnographic attention to life in a Buddhist monastery with a broad analysis of Burman gender ideology. The result is a thought-provoking analysis of Burmese social relations both within and beyond a monastery’s walls.
 
Refreshments will be provided.
