Thailand in the World

International Conference on Thai Studies
22-24 April 2014
University of Sydney, Australia

Please do propose your individual paper and submit an abstract online by September 1 (2013) at sydney.edu.au/southeast-asia-centre/thai-studies-2014/submission-guidelines-form.php

Presentations to the conference will cover a wide range of areas of study: the humanities; the social sciences including economic, social and political disciplines; developments in medicine, science and technology; the fine arts, design and architecture; education; environment. This is not an exhaustive list.

The conference organisers particularly encourage the offer of contributions on various sub-themes:
• the global spread of Thai culture: pan- Tai-ism • the Thai diaspora especially in Europe, North America and Australasia • the world in Thailand: the expatriate impact on Thailand; institutional change from outside • Thailand in the coming Southeast Asian economic, social, strategic and cultural communities • Thailand’s geo-political setting, with special reference to Myanmar, China and the Greater Mekong Sub-region • Thailand within international communities of education, medicine and scientific and technological research.

Intending participants should not feel bound by this list of possible sub-themes, however, and should feel free to suggest other possibilities and to outline their corresponding offers.
