The Siam Society

Under Royal Patronage, the Siam Society is recognized as being the bastion of maintaining Thai tradition and culture. Since inception in 1904 the Society has organized thousands of lectures, displays and workshops on a range of topics focusing on both Thailand and the region. The Society has a characteristically busy schedule of events on offer in May with three lectures taking place.

12 May 2005 sees a lecture entitled "SANGKACHAI OR KACCAYANA - THE FAT THAI MONK" by François Lagirarde. The lecture explores the history, fact and myth behind the ‘fat monk’ images that are subject to remarkable devotion throughout the kingdom. A feature of the lecture will be a large number of photographs taken in both Thailand and Burma.

Possibly on a lighter note, 19 May 2005 sees an illustrated lecture and a food-tasting party entitled "SPICE & HERBS FOR THAI AND CAJUN TASTE of Thai and Cajun (Hot Louisiana Food) Cuisines" led by Doug Harrison and Lowell Barton, co-authors of a new book on the subject called ‘It’s Hot!’ released by Asia Books. The lecture will present the story and history of the herbs and spices that make Thai and Cajun (hot Louisiana food) the two fastest growing cuisines in the world. The final event in May is on 31 May 2005 and entitled "A WALK AND A DRINK IN AYUTTHAYA, 1636 (AND FOUR BOOKS)" by Chris Baker and Dhiravat na Pombejra. The talk outlines events in December 1636 when a group of Dutch merchants went on a picnic outside Ayutthaya, got a bit drunk, and fell into a brawl. The consequences of the incident were probably a little more than one might imagine! For further details on all Siam Society lectures held in May contact the Siam Society.
