Based on 15 years experience of California Polytechnic State University's South-East Asia Summerschool, SEAS together with Prof. Harold Kerbo will organize a 4-weeks summer school programm in 2011. 'Study Experience South-East Asia' will take place from 11 July to 8 August 2011. The programme will include fieldtrips and as well as lectures in both Thailand and Cambodia. The programme's name can therefore be taken literally - study as well as experience South-East Asia through a broad range of different acitivities. Participants will gain insight into Thai & Cambodian society & history, poverty reduction & development policies as well as tourism studies - taught and guided by international lecturers.
Also, we would be more than happy if you are interested in helping us to promote the programme. There is a range of options from receiving flyers or info sheets to forwarding this information. In order to facilitate this we provided files for download as well as more information on our website. Thank you very much!
From 2011 on SEAS is launching a new membership concept building on close co-operation with selected partners: the 'SEAS Card'. SEAS is an institutionally independent organization, thus we mostly rely on project funding as well as our members' contributions. With the SEAS Card our members will benefit from a number of co-operations with our partners. Besides that, becoming a member will allow you to be updated on what we do, exchange ideas with others who are interested in, or studying and working on South-East Asia, purchase our publications at a reduced price, use us as a facilitator for your own ideas and projects and much more.
Our annual membership is 28€ for regular members, 14€ for students and others eligible for reduced membership fee. Find more information here.
