Gatty Lecture Series
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 typically held at the Kahin Center at 12:30pm, though during Fall 2022 people are welcome to participate by Zoom. Several of this year's lectures will take place at 8pm on Thursday evenings, or on a different day - please see the notes below for each talk.
In accordance with SEAP tradition, lunch will be served.
