GETSEA Consortium Picks Up Steam

The consortium for Graduate Education and Training in Southeast Asian Studies (GETSEA) is getting underway!

GETSEA is a newly-established consortium supported by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation through its Luce Initiative on Southeast Asia (LuceSEA). In collaboration with eight current National Resource Centers, GETSEA works to expand the collaborative infrastructure between the centers of Southeast Asian Studies.

This semester, GETSEA is supporting “A Workshop on Translation and Southeast Asian Studies,” a six-part workshop on translating works from Southeast Asian languages into English. The workshop is run by Tyrell Haberkorn of the University of Wisconsin-Madison – a GETSEA consortium member – and offers graduate students a no-credit online opportunity to refine their work on translation for their intellectual/public/activist practice.

GETSEA continues to solicit proposals for similar “mini-course” proposals from faculty members at participating institutions for the winter and spring 2021.

Applications are also open for members of the Graduate Student Advisory Council, which offers graduate students at participating institutions an opportunity to influence the direction of the consortium. Work is beginning on the creation of a needs assessment to determine what faculty and graduate students at GETSEA institutions are most interested in addressing, including facilitating language instruction, cross-institutional mentoring, and more.
