One enterprising four year old boy wowed the crowd with his rendition of “Fly me to the moon” and also took the title and the 50,000 Baht first prize.

Thai Studies Conference to be held at Siam City Hotel, Bangkok

By Reinhard Hohler

The Research Institute for Languages and Cultures of Asia, Mahidol University, is pleased to announce the 11th International Conference on Thai Studies on July 26-28, 2011. Held every three years, the International Conference on Thai Studies is a well-established forum for researchers across disciplines to share knowledge and perspectives on Thailand, Thai culture and society and the connection between Thailand and the world.

In 2011, the conference marks the 30th Anniversary of two special occasions: first, the inauguration of the Thai Studies Conference, initiated in 1981 in India by a small group of Thai and Indian scholars, and secondly, the founding of the Research Institute for Languages and Cultures of Asia, Mahidol University, devoted to research and studies on diverse linguistic groups and cultures of Asia.

The conference is intended to reflect on the course of Thailand’s history and to envision the way forward, as the country has undergone crucial changes and challenges. Panels will engage in such topics as Thailand and ASEAN or Thailand and the Mekong Sub-region (GMS) among others.

The venue of the conference is the plush Siam City Hotel, Bangkok (E-mail: [email protected]), while one of the main sponsors of the conference is Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB).

Chiang Mai University students joined together on June 16 to perform the annual “Wai Khru” ceremony. Wai Khru is performed at schools around the nation every year to give students the opportunity to pay their respects to their teachers and offer their gratitude for their work.

The ceremony at CMU Convention Center began with a Buddhist prayer followed by the students' recitation of the wai khru chant, showing respect for and offering gratitude to the teachers, and asking for the teachers' blessing of their studies. This chant was written by Thanpuying Dussadee Malakul Na Ayutthaya, the wife of the headmaster of Triam Udom Suksa School where the modern ceremony originated in 1941. Students then presented teachers and administrators flowers, candles and incense sticks.

Chiang Mai University President Professor Dr. Pongsak Angkasit called on the students to persevere, be committed to be good students and to achieve academic success.

In addition, advanced registration for early voting is taking place at the Student Union building on the CMU campus.

On June 10 the student union for the Political Science Faculty marched along Huay Kaew Road passing out leaflets to bystanders prompting people to register to vote. While voting is compulsory in Thailand, many do not as there are no real penalties for not voting.
