The Center for Southeast Asian Studies organizes and sponsors a number of events such as lectures, film screening, workshops, symposia, conferences, exhibits, and performances throughout the year. Several of these events are in collaboration with other U-M units, and are often free and open to the public. To see what we have planned for this semester, please visit our 2020 Lecture Series page.
Sinking City, Between Civilization and the Deep Blue Sea
Understanding that lessons learned in Jakarta can have a global impact, University of Michigan alumus Frank Sedlar set out to help with flood mitigation in Jakarta. Frank earned his master of science degree from Michigan Engineering and also studied the Indonesian language while at the university. Photojournalist and filmmaker Marcin Szczepanski and writer Ben Logan from Michigan Engineering chronicled Frank’s experience while in Jakarta working on modern solutions to Jakarta’s growing problem.
Please join us for an opening reception on Friday, October 21 at 5 PM at the International Institute Gallery. Refreshments will be served.
