Friday Forum Lecture Series

The Center for Southeast Asian Studies organizes a weekly lecture forum on Southeast Asia. A wide range of topics are presented by invited guest lecturers from the U.S. and abroad, as well as by UW-Madison faculty, graduate students, and community members. Lectures are every Friday from 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm, and alumni, friends, and the public are always invited to attend.

Currently, the Fall 2023 Friday Forum Series format will be primarily in-person. Exceptions are noted for talks where relevant. Recordings of lectures will be available dependent on speaker preference. Find them on our Youtube channel here.
