MAI warmly welcome three new academic staffs (on Indonesia and Korea)
* Herb Feith Professor Ariel Heryanto
Professor Heryanto is regarded as one of the world’s most influential analysts of contemporary popular culture and of radical political movements in Indonesia since the 1980s. His focus on the politics of everyday life and relationships between language, media and popular culture have revolutionised the field of Indonesian Studies by connecting insights from anthropology, political science and cultural studies. He is currently working closely with Professor Koichi Iwabuchi at the Monash Asia Institute to reconceptualise Asian Studies to provide more emphasis on the cultural flows that shape modern Asian societies. Professor Heryanto’s appointment also adds to the already strong cohort of scholars working on aspects of Indonesia at Monash.
Faculty Welcome Lunch will be held on 22 March 2017, Taste Baguette, Monash University, Clayton campus.
