Lectures are a regular activity at The Siam Society and take place on an almost-weekly basis, in the evening. They are given in English by an appealing mix of speakers including authors, visiting scholars, leading experts and enthusiasts.
The subject matter is diverse, in line with The Siam Society’s mission to promote knowledge of the arts and natural sciences of Thailand and its neighbouring countries, and have covered new archaeological finds, Thai history, antique textile collections, contemporary Thai artists and designers, and much more. The lectures often end with a lively Q&A session. Special lectures that are conducted in Thai are usually scheduled on Saturdays, during the day.
The Siam Society is deeply grateful to the James H.W. Thompson Foundation for its generous support of the 2018–2019 Lecture Series.
Members (and their spouse) may attend lectures for free, as well as students with a valid student ID card.
Non-members are welcome to attend for a small contribution of THB 200.
