Critical Histories of Activism: Indonesia’s New Order and its Legacies

Call for Papers

UCLA Indonesian Studies Conference
April 13-14, 2013
Conveners: Jeffrey Hadler and Nancy Peluso (University of California, Berkeley)
Web announcement: www.international.ucla.edu/cseas/indonesia/article.asp?parentid=128788
Deadline: January 7, 2013
This conference will give scholars and activists an opportunity to reassess the emergence or resurgence of new forms of activism and protest during the New Order period in Indonesia. In the face of state violence and repressive actions towards large segments of the population political and cultural activists developed techniques of action and expression that survived policing or thrived in its constant presence. Some of these modes of action and activism lasted beyond the fall of Suharto but for others the new political era required different critical tactics.
