Singapore Lecture Series at Brown

Got this in the mailbox. A trip to Providence, RI in April anyone?

---------------------------------------------------------

The Singaporeans at Brown will be holding our 2nd Singapore Lecture Series in April, and we would like to invite you to join us.

We held the first Singapore Lecture Series on our campus last year and invited speakers such as talkingcock.com founder Colin Goh (see attached article - he wrote about us!) and Francis Seow, the former solicitor general of Singapore.

This year, we are looking forward to receiving Singaporean personalities such as Dr. Cherian George, author of the famous book "Singapore: The Air-Conditioned Nation" and Mr. Alfian bin Sa'at, prominent Malay gay rights activist and playwright. Please visit our website http://www.brown.edu/Students/Students_On_Singapore/SLS/ for more information on the Lecture Series. You should also click on the "Register Now!" link on the website, to register if you're interested in coming for our event (it's commitment-free so please don't hesitate to register, we promise we won't come hunt you down).

Come! April 14th and 15th. It'll be a fun Singaporean get together (plans for a roti-prata supper/social underway) and intellectually stimulating - promise. Last year, we had Singaporeans from all across the East coast - Penn, Princeton, Vassar, Columbia, Yale, Harvard, BC, BU, Wesleyan, John Hopkins, MIT, Dartmouth etc. come join us and we trust that they had enjoyed themselves thoroughly.

Again, the link to click is http://www.brown.edu/Students/Students_On_Singapore/SLS/ -

I don't think it's that far. (At least not as far as where I am now) Go lah! I bet some of your peers are going.
