Research Interests
I am interested in the historical sociology of Indonesia and Southeast Asia. My dissertation work focuses on the uneven and combined development of colonialism and revolutionary nationalism in Indonesia. I seek to decenter both Western actors and nationalist elites in my account of Indonesian independence by framing it as an intersocietal process in which subaltern agents played a leading role.
