COMPLEXITIES IN REMEMBERING: MEMORY OF VIOLENCE IN POST NEW ORDER INDONESIA

Grace Leksana has been working in several projects related to memory and reconciliation in Indonesia, together with the Indonesian Institute of Social History (Insitut Sejarah Sosial Indonesia/ ISSI). Currently, she is working on a PhD project of post-New Order memories in Indonesia – a joint project between KITLV, Leiden University and NIOD. Her research focuses on the construction of Indonesia’s collective memory and the changes that occur along with regime shift. For this research, she will use a combination method of oral history and archival research to examine how local villagers live through different regimes of memory construction. The research also aims to place the local villagers as agents of memory and scrutinize further local mechanisms that persist, modify, or even confront, the memory construction. This four year research project will be conducted in two villages in Malang District, East Java.

Supervisor: prof. dr. H. Schulte Nordholt
