12th International Conference on Thai Studies

University of Sydney

Sydney, Australia


Tuesday 22 – Thursday 24 April 2014


The University of Sydney will host the Twelfth International Conference on Thai Studies (ICTS12) in April next year.   This is a reminder that proposals for panels are due by the end of this month.  Full details of the conference, and the online forms for panel and paper proposals and for registration are available at:




Since 1981, ICTS has been held every three years at different universities in and outside Thailand.  This will be the first ICTS to be held in a city outside Thailand that has a significant Thai population, and this will help define the over-arching theme of the conference. Thailand in the World also anticipates the ASEAN Community in 2015, recognizes the globalization of the Thai economy, and follows a longstanding interest of ICTS in the broader world of Tai cultures beyond Thailand’s borders.  As previously, the conference will be also open to a wide range of themes in the field of Thai Studies.



We look forward to seeing you in Sydney in 2014!
