See details of guest speakers below
HANI YULINDRASARI is a lecturer in the Early Childhood Teacher Education Program, Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia in Bandung, Indonesia. She is currently completing her doctoral thesis on “Negotiating masculinities: the lived experience of male teachers in Indonesian early childhood education.” By examining gender narratives among male teachers, the research examines the diversity of masculinities in Indonesia including a range of ‘nurturing masculinities’.
NOOR HUDA ISMAIL focusses his research on the Indonesian foreign fighters, hegemonic masculinity and globalization. His internationally acclaimed documentary film Jihad Selfie (2016) traces the steps of a young man from Aceh as he was about to go to Syria to join ISIS. In his work, Ismail contends that the ‘masculine’ is not only a personal practice but a political decision which requires the struggle for limited resources, the mobilisation of power and tactics.
BENJAMIN HEGARTY is completing his doctoral dissertation on the changing possibilities for queer intimacy and the feminine transgender body in authoritarian Indonesia (1966-1998). He will share with us his insights on changing notions of being a complete man (laki-laki komplit) as the New Order ideology of marriage and household is an increas-ingly difficult path to follow and new sites of pleasure and possibilities for economic suc-cess induce a different and more ambiguous future of masculinity in the post-authoritarian period.
EVI ELIYANAH is completing her doctoral thesis “Reconfiguring Masculinity: Reel New Man and Gender Politics in Indonesia”. It unravels the complex power struggle in recon-figuring and legitimating an alternative ideal masculinity projected to replace the status-quo hegemonic masculinity in a less likely front of gender politics: commercial cinema.
DR. SARA NINER is an expert in the field of gender and development with a long-term interest in those issues in the post-conflict environment of Timor-Leste. Her current re-search explores gender roles in the post-conflict setting of Timor-Leste (East Timor), fo-cussing on the implications for change and continuity in constructions of masculinities over time.
Associate Professor Julian Millie is ARC future fellow in the Anthropology, working on publicness in Indonesia’s regional Islamic spheres. His forthcoming book Laughing, cry-ing, thinking: Islamic oratory and its critics will be published by Cornell University Press.
Ariel Heryanto is the new Herbert Feith Professor for the Study of Indonesia, Faculty of Arts. His latest book is Identity and Pleasure; the politics of Indonesian screen culture (2014).
