Wednesday 13 September

Lecture by Michael Willé and Aafke de Jong (graduates Indonesian languages and cultures at Leiden University) about the coming into being of the Indonesian language, Bahasa Indonesia, which plays an important part as social, cultural and political factor and in the forming of an identity.
How does the modern Indonesian language relate to the usage of the old Javanese shadow puppet theatre (wajang) and the cast system of Bali? What does Indonesian mean to the young rock artist in Jakarta? Which mixed forms are there and how do Dutch-Indionesian people in The Netherlands (actors like Wieteke van Dort, Ricky Risolles, Coen Pronk and the monthly paper Moesson) use them?
Illustrated with many visio- and audio-examples.
