The Plight of the Rohingya

October 23, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Origins and Prospects Panel Discussion with

Charmaine Craig (Creative Writing)
Tamara Ho (Gender & Sexuality Studies)
Emily Hue (Ethnic Studies)

Over 5000,000 Rohingya have recently been driven out of Myanmar due to violent attack by the country’s army, causing a refugee emergency. In this public conversation, we will consider: the history of majority nationalism and ethnic conflict in Burma/Myanmar, the perceived complicity of de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi, the role of Islamophobia in the current conflict, and the subject of refugee resettlement in an area of US travel- and “Muslim-bans.”
