International Journal of Indonesian Studies
Issue 3: Spring 2016
IJIS 3 presents an engagingly diverse range of papers and essays in a wide range of unique fields of scholarship in contemporary Indonesian studies. In this issue, we have encouraged publication of a number of collaborative papers between Indonesian and non-Indonesian scholars. As well, there are several excellent essays by non-Indonesian scholars that successfully complement the essays and papers by the Indonesian scholars to whom IJIS is devoted.

IJIS 3 presents research papers from the fields of linguistics, anthropology, legal studies, education, journalism and neo-natal health studies. The essays cover the work of revered poet W.S Rendra, the socio-political and historical conditions underlying the emergence of English teaching in Indonesia, the second part of an examination of Wahid’s FIQH paradigm, and a critical discussion of the influence of Walter Benjamin on Benedict Anderson’s influential treatise on nationalism that has had substantial impact on Indonesian discourses.
