In collaboration with the Research Office/Faculty of Arts, the Herb Feith Centre is currently hosting a three-week workshop (4-22 November 2019) for ten Early Career Researchers from Indonesian Islamic Higher Education institutions on research methodology and writing and publication in the humanities and social sciences.
