IJIS 2: 2015

International Journal of Indonesian Studies

Issue 2: Autumn 2015

The IJIS AUTUMN 2015 issue presents a variety of subjects in the field of contemporary Indonesian Studies: political history, linguistics, Islam and democracy, gay issues, the environment, education, intellectual property securitization, consumerism and literary and translation studies. We are particularly proud to present the study of the ‘gay Indonesian migrant’, as we feel it is an important, rare and encouraging contribution to a marginalized discourse in contemporary Indonesian studies. And, congratulations to all contributors for whom English may well be their second, third and sometimes even fourth language. We are again very appreciative of the artistic contribution made by Dewi Candraningrum:
