The Ronald and Janette Gatty Lecture Series (formerly known as the Brown Bags) is a weekly lecture series featuring advanced SEAP graduate students as well as academics, diplomats, researchers, and others who have expertise in Southeast Asia. A history of the series and its origins is available in the Fall 2021 SEAP bulletin

These talks are held at the Kahin Center at 12:15pm, though during Spring 2022 members of the Cornell community are also welcome to participate by Zoom. The broader public may be able to participate in some Zoom lectures. Please check back on this page for the latest information on public attendance for each talk.

Beverages will be served outside before the talk, and in accordance with current Cornell guidance we will be wearing masks indoors. Feel free to bring your own brownbag lunch and eat outside with us before the talk. Some of our speakers will present only on Zoom and will not be physically present at the Kahin Center, but for those talks people are still welcome to join us at the Kahin Center for a screening of the talk.

The full poster for the Spring 2022 Gatty Lecture Series is available here. 

Recordings for some of our previous virtual Gatty lectures are available on the Global Cornell YouTube channel.
