The ongoing global pandemic caused by the Covid-19 virus is indiscriminately affecting everyone. No one is prepared to live under an outbreak that limits our social activities. However, the Covid-19 outbreak is only one out of many pandemics throughout the history of humanity. A number of researches in this field have been successfully done; notwithstanding, more initiatives must be stimulated. 

In doing so, the Department of History, Universitas Gadjah Mada, will organize the 3rd International Summer School in Transnational History, “Resilience and Control: Transmissible Disease and the Rise of Modern Society”. This year, the summer school will be held virtually between 2-22 August 2021.

Learning Outcome

  • Students critically understand the impact of a pandemic in various regions of Southeast Asia
  • Students produce scientific paper through collaborative work
  • Students manage to build transnational cooperation and networks with their fellow students but also with academics in Southeast Asia.
