2015 Council on Thai Studies (COTS) Conference – OHIO University Libraries

COTS 2015


The Council on Thai Studies (COTS) invites students and scholars of Thailand to submit paper abstracts for the 2015 COTS conference at Ohio University. We welcome all topics and disciplines. Please submit abstracts of no more than 250 words to Jeffrey Shane at shane@ohio.edu by August 21, 2015. Individual presentations will be limited to 15-20 minutes, depending on the number of submissions. For further information, please contact Shane@ohio.edu.

The Council on Thai Studies, established in 1972 at Northern Illinois University, was conceived as a forum in which scholars and students engaged in the study of Thailand could assemble to exchange ideas, share their research, and test the validity of their contentions and approaches to understanding Thailand. The COTS conference is free and open to the public.
