Southeast Asian Studies Serials
In 2006, the Center for Khmer Studies initiated a Translation Capacity Building Project to systematically publish translations in the social sciences and to develop a younger generation of Cambodian translators. Beginning with a one-week workshop on theory and the technical aspects of translation, CKS identified a core team of translators, who through a peer-review process began to translate selected academic texts from their respective sessions of the Junior Faculty Training program.
The Southeast Asian Studies Series is the outcome of this training program. The Series is currently comprised of six texts, each focusing on a specific theme in Southeast Asian Studies, providing a much needed Khmer language resource in the social sciences. The CKS thanks the Rockefeller Foundation for supporting this training program.
