SEA Chat (Southeast Asian Chat) is the monthly agenda of Center for Southeast Asian Social Studies which invites students to discuss about countries in Southeast Asia region. It is expected to provide a clear picture of the state of the country, share information, and be a way to understand each other.

With the theme “Unstereotyping Southeast Asia”, this time SEA Chat invited Gibson Haynes, an American Southeast Asia researcher from John Hopkins University.
Southeast Asia is a very diverse and multi-layered sub-region in Asia which consists of different nations with different ethnicities, languages, cultures, and societies. Besides, Southeast Asian nations considerably share distinctive socio-cultural features, in terms of language spoken, ethnicities, religion, culture, and society which differed from one to another. Specifically, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore are highly considered as Southeast Asian diverse nations, ethnically, linguistically, religiously, culturally, socially, and politically. But they are diverse in different ways and cope with diversity in different ways (Ali, 2011).
