Dear All, 

The Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS), Kyoto University recently started an initiative to document the ongoing worldwide situation under the effects of the Corona Virus pandemic: Corona Chronicles: Voices from the Field. The platform aims capture what is happening on the ground and present different perspectives and voices from Southeast Asia and other regions.

It is providing regular up-to-date commentary, analysis and thoughtful insight into how COVID-19 is impacting individuals, communities and nations as well as research initiatives. This platform will disseminate comparative perspectives from across different regions to share knowledge and responses. These are not limited solely to academic analysis, but also welcomes nuanced commentary from writers, filmmakers, journalists, healthcare experts, and others. We will carry articles in English and a selection will be translated into Japanese. We encourage and welcome submissions especially from people who are based in Southeast Asia and content will be updated on a weekly basis.
