Men at the Margins: Masculinity and Ceasefire at the Indo-Burmese Frontier


  • Tanya Jakimow, Duncan McDuie-Ra


My thesis focuses on how men respond to ceasefire and the closing of conflict in the Indian state of Nagaland along the India/Burma border, a frontier state that, until recently, hosted a violent war for independent sovereignty that involved highly gendered roles linked to Naga customs and pervasive armed conflict.
