Thailand Update: Protests Revisited

Please join us for a two-day conference on Monday, March 15, 2021 (from 14:00-16:15 CET) and Tuesday, March 16, 2021 (from 14:00-16:30 CET)

Since the emergence of mass student-led rallies in mid-July 2019, political protest has once again become a major focus of interest in Thailand. This year’s Thailand Update (the sixth so far) links discussions of previous rounds of protest – notably the 6 October 1976 events, the subject of a major new 2020 book by Thongchai Winichakul – to ask searching questions about these recent demonstrations.

Online via Zoom. Registration Required. 
A virtual reception via Zoom with the use of breakout rooms will follow the completion of the Day 1 of the conference.

This event is co-sponsored by the Weatherhead East Asian Institute, the New York Southeast Asia Network and the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies.
