A research chair for the study of Indonesia is of particular significance for the Faculty of Arts, the Centre of Southeast Asian Studies, Monash University and Australian society. It continues and reinforces Monash’s commitment to the critical examination of complex political, cultural and historical issues in Indonesia and strengthens the university’s capacity to foster scholarship on Indonesia to the highest standard.

The inaugural Herb Feith Professor for the Study of Indonesia, Greg Barton, was appointed in 2007 until 2015.
