Research Institute of Northeastern Art and Culture
The Research Institute of Northeastern Art and Culture was established to facilitate the University’s mission of conserving and promoting Isan art and culture. In its earlier years, the center received financial support from various organizations which enabled it to carry out numerous projects and expand its operational scope over the years. The initial project took place in 1970 when the center was known as the Center for Northeastern Art & Culture.
|In 1986, the center took its present name and a budget was allocated for its current five-story building designed in a contemporary northeastern Thai style to reflect the uniqueness and beauty of Isan art and culture. The building has since been the main center for gathering information relating to Isan art and culture as well as for administration, exhibition and research activities. At present, the Institute offers two post-graduate programs, a Master of Arts program and a Doctor of Philosophy program in Cultural Studies.|
