Poets, Performances, Politics. Some Reflections on Modern Indonesian Literature

Dr Will Derks
Youth and Ageing in Southeast Asia(SoSe 21)

Modern Indonesian literature has always been approached  against the background of a Western  set of ideas about literature.

My argument will revolve around the interface between print-literacy on the one hand and orality on the other. Based on that I will also try to suggest some of the consequences this may have for the way we should approach and study it.
