Wednesday, 6 October, 2021 - 12:30 to 14:00

Based on my new book Faces of Indonesia, 500 postcards, 1900-1945, the presentation will highlight the extraordinary diversity of the people of Indonesia prior to independence. I will argue that on the one hand, the decreasing visibility of this diversity today (in clothing, for instance) is an indication of successful nation-building. On the other hand, however, it also points to an erosion of valuable cultural resources possessed by the various groups.
