Tea Circle (I): Retrospective on the use of blogs to open virtual civic Venues
26 Nov (Sat) 2pm-3:30 pm
Venue: Room 4th floor BACC – SEAJunction
Tea Circle, established in 2015, is now housed in the Asian Institute at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy at the University of Toronto. It represents a virtual forum for new and emerging perspectives on Burma/Myanmar during its current period of political and economic transition. The blog highlights analysis, research, opinions, book reviews, multi-media presentations and other types of submissions from a global audience of contributors. The session will review some of the recent highlights and how it can expand virtual civic spaces post 2021. It will introduce Tea Circle’s redesigned website & fully bilingual approach, invite collaborations as a platform for multi-media archives, and reflect on Tea Circle’s impact by revisiting an article from the archives, with commentary from the author and a reader.

About Tea Circle
Tea Circle was established in November 2015 as a forum for new and emerging perspectives on Burma/Myanmar during its current period of political and economic transition. It highlights analysis, research, opinions, book reviews, multi-media presentations and other types of submissions from a global audience of contributors. Tea Circle is run by a group of dedicated volunteer editors and is particularly focused on creating opportunities for contributors from Myanmar.
It is now a part of the Centre for Southeast Asian Studies, housed in the Asian Institute at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy at the University of Toronto. We are grateful for the institutional and financial support provided to Tea Circle, including from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC)’s Knowledge for Democracy – Myanmar Initiative.
