Representing Karen historical networks

During my fellowship I am returning to the core project of my PhD research, tracing histories of Pwo and Sgaw Karen literate networks in nineteenth-century Myanmar. I am working to revise and extend this project, integrating more recent scholarship and expanding my focus to include different networks of exchange and cultural production. I am particularly interested in representing historical networks visually, so I plan to test some new tools for network visualization. I am pleased to have an opportunity to renew contacts with scholars in Japan who work on similar topics.
