In addition to conferences, workshops,
study groups, cultural events and film
screenings, the Council hosts an annual lunchtime
Seminar Series featuring invited speakers
from a variety of disciplines and institutions chosen
for their ability to contribute to discussions of
ongoing research by Yale students and faculty, and
to reach interested audiences throughout the University.
Nearly all of the Council's events are free and open
to the public.
The Council sponsors specialized workshops and presentations
organized by subsidiary consortiums of students and
faculty such as the ongoing Yale
Indonesia Forum and the Yale
Vietnamese Studies Group.
The Council helped to launch the Cambodian
Genocide Project at Yale, supports programs of
Art Department at the Yale Art Gallery, and regularly
co-sponsors numerous activities in association with
related organizations throughout the University. The
Council works with the student board of ALSEAS
(Alliance for Southeast Asia Students) to coordinate
support for activities of the various Southeast Asian
student groups on campus. (See KASAMA,
