1-3 October 2019

Monash University has announced a Call for Papers for an interdisciplinary conference, “Chinese Indonesians: Identities and Histories“.

  • What are some of the new features or trends in the studies of Chinese Indonesians, and how do they compare to recent studies of ethnic minorities elsewhere?
  • What have been the new discoveries in the field in the past 30 years or so? What research questions have been raised? Why have they been asked in some areas and not in others?

The keynote lectures will be given by Dr Karen Strassler, Associate Professor of Anthropology, Queens College and CUNY Graduate Center, USA, and Dr Hilmar Farid, Director General of Culture, Ministry of Education and Culture, Republic of Indonesia.
