Southeast Asia Demystified
With nearly 10% of the entire world’s population, hundreds of languages and tens of thousands of islands, South East Asia is a fascinating region. Did you know that Indonesia houses more Muslims than any Arab country? Or that the lesser-known country of Papua New Guinea is home to more languages than any other nation in the world? Let’s discover South East Asia together and hear from our guests who grew up in its various corners.
History and Politics of Myanmar
This February, a coup d’état took place in Myanmar (also known as Burma) and plunged the country into chaos as nationwide protests took place. How much do we actually know about the contributing factors and the desired outcomes of the protests? How did the British and Buddhism affect the path that the country took leading up to 2021? Don’t miss this opportunity as our Burmese guest gives us a crash course on Myanmar’s history.
