Established in 1947, Southeast Asia Studies was the first area studies program at Yale - and by all accounts the first in the country to establish a program for the study of Southeast Asia in all disciplines. See SEAS History. . .

INDO-PACIFIC COLLECTION, YALE UNIVERSITY ART GALLERY:

"A rare treat. . .Only a handful of U.S. museums devote space to the cultures of the Indian and Pacific Oceans—Here they are kept together, inviting us to see connections and explore diverse cultural expressions, from refined court arts to the spiritually charged talismans of headhunters." Lee Lawrence, "Eastern Expansion," Wall Street Journal
"The installation is enrapturing . . ." Holland Cotter, New York Times Art Review        

ERIK HARMS WINS BENDA PRIZE

Congratulations to Erik Harms on receiving the 2014 Harry J. Benda Prize in recognition of his achievement as the author of Saigon's Edge - On the Margins of Ho Chi Minh City.

"Saigon’s Edge explores life in Hóc Môn, a district that lies along a key transport corridor on the outskirts of Ho Chi Minh City. Erik Harms puts forth a revealing perspective on how rapid urbanization impacts people living at the intersection of rural and urban worlds and opens a window on Vietnam’s larger turn toward market socialism and the celebration of urbanization. . . More than a local case study of urban change, Harms's work also opens a window on Vietnam's larger turn toward market socialism and the celebration of urbanization—transformations instructively linked to trends around the globe."
