"Social Identities in Contemporary Indonesia; a new framework of studying Asia" is a collaborative project, run by a team of researchers from The Australian National University and University of Freiburg, and sponsored by Australia's Group of Eight (Go8) universities and the German Academic Exchange Service.


This project takes one of the most challenging tasks in contemporary scholarship on Asia, namely how to articulate and analyse the dynamics of rapidly transforming societies in the region in the twenty-first century. It explores the formation and contestation of social identities, new subjectivities and cultural imaginations, as well as to build new approaches to the study of Asia. Focussing on Indonesia, the project examines intersecting and competing identities along gender, ethnicity, class and national/regional/cosmopolitan lines.
