LuceSEA Transitions: Environment, Society and Change Project awarded $1 million grant
Our University of Hawai’i at Mānoa Center for Southeast Asian Studies (UH CSEAS), in partnership with the East-West Center, was recently awarded a $1 million grant from the Henry Luce Foundation for the LuceSEA Transitions: Environment, Society and Change project.
Led by CSEAS Director Dr. Miriam Stark, and with over 38 core team members and collaborators from across the US, Southeast Asia, Europe and the Pacific, this 5-year project will explore socioeconomic and environmental shifts that are transforming Southeast Asian societies in a time of accelerated climate and environmental change.
The project aims to:
- Enhance collaboration and equality with SEA-based research partners by embedding training and collaboration opportunities into research and professional opportunities;
- Support SEA-based workshops to share information and help early career researchers develop professional skills;
- Develop and make available college-level SEA curricular resources on environmental issues and agrarian transitions as Open Educational Resources (OER) and for-credit online courses available using digital technology.
