The Center for Southeast Asian Studies at Northern Illinois University is pleased to host the annual meeting of the Council on Thai Studies (COTS 2016), October 28–29, 2016 at the Barsema Alumni and Visitors Center.

First held at Northern Illinois University in 1972, the annual meeting of the Council on Thai Studies (COTS) is designed to be an informal gathering for scholars to receive interdisciplinary prepublication feedback from other scholars in Thai Studies and to workshop research in progress. The NIU Council on Thai Studies defines “Thai Studies” to include all topics from any discipline on Thailand, Tai/Thai people (in Thailand and the diaspora), Tai/Thai language(s), Tai/Thai culture(s) and Tai/Thainess.
