THE CENTRE FOR SOUTHEAST ASIAN STUDIES AT THE ASIAN INSTITUTE
The University of Toronto houses one of the strongest concentration of scholars in North America working on Southeast Asia in the social sciences and the humanities. The Centre for Southeast Asian Studies is comprised of scholars working and teaching on Southeast Asia at the University of Toronto. The Centre’s mandate is to provide a forum to discuss, initiate, plan, and coordinate research, teaching, and other activities relating to Southeast Asia. As a constituent unit of the Asian Institute at the Munk School of Global Affairs, the Centre seeks to complement the broader coordinating role of Asian Studies at the University of Toronto by providing a more focused attention to teaching, research, and other activities relating to Southeast Asian studies.
The Centre for Southeast Asian Studies holds an annual seminar series organized by the Asian Institute at the Munk School of Global Affairs, in addition to organizing a range of specialized conferences and workshops.
