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. Hosted by the Programme on Modern Burmese Studies at St Antony’s College at the University of Oxford, it highlights analyses, research, and opinions from students, faculty, and community members at the University and beyond.
In addition to pieces posted by those currently in Oxford, Tea Circle also features regular guest contributions from experts on Burma/Myanmar.
Tea Circle has emerged from a longstanding commitment to Burma/Myanmar on the part of the University and St Antony’s College. Not only does St Antony’s count Daw Aung San Suu Kyi among the College’s Honorary Fellows, but her late husband, Dr Michael Aris, was a Fellow of the College from 1989 until his death in 1999. St Antony’s also coordinates, in collaboration with the Department of Politics and International Relations at Oxford, The Charles Wallace Burma Trust Fellowship, which annually brings a scholar or practitioner from Myanmar to Oxford to engage in collaborative research.
