A majority of the Southeast Asian student groups at Brown University focus on promulgating the cultural aspects of Southeast Asia . However, insufficient attention has been paid to socio-political developments, especially in consideration with a US-dominated global political as well as cultural scene.
The Singaporean community at Brown University is attempting to breach this gap by organizing a Singapore Lecture Series, a forum that focuses on international relations and democratization, for prominent Singaporeans who have taken initiatives in the unfolding of their lives, to enter into discussion with Singaporean students from the Northeastern region of the US and other non-Singaporean Brown students.
Recommended by Anonymous Coward: "They brought in Francis Seow and Colin Goh last year. This will be a subsequent continuation of the lecture series. Singaporeans from Top Universities across America will be attending this. Brown University, will be for two days, the place in America with the highest concentration of brilliantly intellectual Singaporean Youth. The movers and shakers of Singapore Society Tomorrow."
