"Planet Burma - Society Home Page

Here we focus on the Society itself.

Who We Are and What We Do Non-political by definition, we welcome "Burmese", "Myanmar" and western members without distinction.
Frequently Asked Questions
Our Lectures. Members are able to attend (normally) seven meetings a year, on the premises of the Medical Society of London. We have a wealth of speakers, all expert on some aspect of Burma, and new subjects are covered as often as possible.
Society Information

Summaries On this web site, Society members can see (currently) 48 summaries or transcripts of previous lectures, many of them illustrated with the original slides, in our Members' Area. The full contents of our Members' Area - including these talks and many other things too - are listed for all to see on a comprehensive site map.
Just as an example... Most of these illustrated summaries can only be seen by logging in as a Society member - however, we have put one mini version on the open pages of this web site. In May 2005, Peter Evans gave a very colourful talk on the Water Festival in Burma, including both pictures and video on the big screen - and you can see the mini summary by clicking here. (NB - the full version of his summary, which is ten times as long, can be seen in the members' area.)
