Between the Mountain and the Sea: Positioning Indonesia
July 9-10, 2012
Gadjah Mada University, Yogyakarta, Indonesia
Background - Call for Papers
The past dozen years since the fall of Suharto saw dramatic transformations in various aspects of life in Indonesia. From being a country in distress, in danger of dissolution, plagued by economic crisis and violence and battered by man-made and natural disasters, Indonesia now cuts a figure, or so we are told, of a rising Garuda poised to claim a prominent place in the world. Inside Indonesia the struggle against corruption, lawlessness and intolerance is ongoing and more and more Indonesian citizens are becoming aware of their positions in their own community within Indonesia and beyond. It is precisely the enormous diversity of the physical, socio-economic, cultural and political contexts of Indonesian people's lived experience that sets a fluid and fertile, if contested, grounds for (re)imagining and (re)positioning Indonesia in the scheme of things--global, regional, local, transnational or translocal.
As an interdisciplinary conference bringing together once again scholars from Indonesia and many other nations, the Fifth International Indonesia Forum seeks to provide a platform for scholars who keenly follow developments in Indonesia to discuss the various ways and contexts by which the state, scholars, individuals, civil society organizations, and other interest groups have recreated, redefined or re-imagined Indonesia's past, present and future in response to, or along with, its changes: political, environmental, climatic, religious, conceptual, geo-strategic, social, pop cultural, and intellectual. Papers that deal with the various aspects of positioning Indonesia in the global or regional stage, in the increasingly fragile natural environment, as well as positioning Indonesian citizens and communities within this multicultural nation are welcome.
The Fifth International Indonesia Forum Conference sponsored by Yale University and Gadjah Mada University will be held at Gadjah Mada University in Yogyakarta on 9-10 July 2012.
Persons wishing to present papers at the conference are invited to submit a one-page abstract in electronic form (PDF or MSWord), as well as a brief CV to Frank Dhont at the following address:frank.dhont@.... All papers will be presented in English. Deadline for submission of abstracts: March 31, 2012.
