Founded in 1972 at Northern Illinois University, the Council on Thai Studies (COTS) is an informal consortium of scholars with interests in Thai Studies. The annual COTS meeting was designed as a space for scholars, students, and practitioners to share works in progress, preliminary findings, notes from the field, as well as projects that are more developed on topics related to Thai Studies as broadly defined.

COTS is hosted by NIU, University of Wisconsin-Madison and Ohio University on a rotational basis. COTS is a free event and is open to the general public.

Register for the conference today.
