Event description
THE 39TH INDONESIA FORUM POSTGRADUATE SYMPOSIUM

About this event

Formed in 1991, the Indonesia Forum (IF), previously known as the Indonesia Interest Group, is an informal and open network of academics, students and administrative staff of the University of Melbourne who share a common interest and professional involvement in Indonesia. Members keep in touch by e-mail and hold meetings, seminars and discussions. For the past ten years the IF has hosted major functions which have brought together the wider Melbourne Indonesian and campus-based Indonesia-interested communities. The Forum also plays a policy advisory role on Indonesia-related issues within the University and works closely with the Asia Institute and with Indonesian students and students studying in Indonesia-related areas.

In 1999 the Forum arranged its first postgraduate roundtable for students studying in Indonesia-related fields. This year marks the 39th Annual Indonesia Forum Postgraduate Student Symposium. The Symposium showcases the research of postgraduate students working in and on Indonesia, including PhD and Research Masters students from across Australian and Indonesian universities. The Symposium provides a key forum for students of Indonesia, regardless of their discipline, to network and share emerging ideas and research findings. At the Symposium there is a strong focus on building and extending transnational research networks between Indonesia and Australia, and sustaining an Indonesia-focused research community that is highly inclusive and supportive of the ongoing careers of current postgraduate students.

This year’s Symposium will be a virtual event using the ZOOM platform. The program features six interdisciplinary panels of papers presented by students and chaired by University of Melbourne academic staff. There is a strong emphasis on brief presentations and extensive group discussion of the work presented. The day will end with a special Round Table Discussion on the impact of COVID-19 on Indonesian researchers and research in Indonesia, and the diverse strategies and innovations people have applied to continue their research during the pandemic.
