Burmese Sociocultural Adjustment to Thai International Programs: An Analysis of the Impact of Historical Revisionism
Rhein, Douglas
Educational Research for Policy and Practice, v15 n3 p189-208 Oct 2016
This research explores the perception and experiences of 15 Burmese international students temporarily studying at two international colleges in suburban Bangkok, Thailand and compares their impressions of and reaction to history with 10 Thai students studying at the same international colleges. This ethnographic exploration of Burmese sociocultural adjustment to Thai international programs aims to clarify the historical causes of the present day tension through in-depth interviews of the affected student groups. An historical analysis of causation and the student response is necessary to understand the relationship between these neighboring countries.
