We are happy to announce that The Henry Luce Foundation has awarded SEAP a grant to support the newly-established Graduate Education and Training in Southeast Asian Studies (GETSEA), formed with the mission of enhancing graduate education in Southeast Asian Studies across North America.
The consortium is a cross-institutional network led by eight current and recent National Resource Centers (NRCs) on Southeast Asia, with SEAP serving as its institutional host. With the support of the Luce Foundation, GETSEA will work to expand the collaborative infrastructure between the centers of Southeast Asian Studies, including a rotating monthly seminar, a mentoring network, and shared language instruction. More information about these initiatives will be available soon.
This collaboration between NRCs will be particularly critical as we continue to adapt to new virtual learning environments and allow our graduate students and faculty to take advantage of expanded curricular and networking opportunities. This grant will allow SEAP and our fellow NRCs to foster innovation in our collaborative scholarship, and to come together during a time of social distancing to strengthen our scholarly interactions.
The seven other members of the consortium are the National Resource Centers on Southeast Asia at:
- The University of Michigan
- Northern Illinois University
- The University of Hawai’I at Mānoa
- The University of Washington
- The University of Wisconsin, Madison
- The University of California, Los Angeles
- The University of California, Berkeley
