Celebrating a Lifelong Intellectual Partnership (Fukuoka Grand Prize, 2017)
Date and Time: Monday October 2nd 4p.m.-6p.m.
Venue: Inamori 3rd floor, Mid-size meeting room
We are honored to welcome Professor Pasuk Phongpaichit and Dr. Chris Baker, awardees of the Fukuoka Grand Prize, 2017 and long-time friends of CSEAS. We hope to take this chance to celebrate the award and hear about their lifelong work, which covers unparalleled width and versatility: from political economy of Thailand since the 1980s to the present, history of Ayutthaya, to Thai classical literature. Always so willing to engage in discussion with us in Kyoto, this time Ajarn Pasuk and Chris have agreed to talk about their work with some personal touches in response to our request to hear about the wonder of how they have worked together.
