SEAC Café

A chance to ask difficult questions, discuss the topics that interest you most and hear more from academics across LSE working on Southeast Asia.

 

The SEAC Café consists of a series of small group sessions over the course of the year giving all LSE students the opportunity to engage with LSE SEAC Associates in an array of fields all focused on the Southeast Asia region.

These sessions are group meetings for open discussion in a more informal setting. Registration is required in advance and group sizes will be limited to ensure discussion topics can be kept relevant to all attendees. The Cafe is now closed and will reopen in Michaelmas Term 2022.
