Item description for Clearing a Space: Postcolonial Readings of Modern Indonesian Literature by Keith Foulcher & Tony Day...
This collection draws together the work of authors from Indonesia, Australia, North America, and Europe in the first comprehensive attempt to relate modern Indonesian literature to the insights and approaches of postcolonial theory and literary criticism.
The essays in the collection range over the history of modern Indonesian literature from its beginnings in the late 19th century to its diversity and growth in the 1990s. Some offer fresh readings of well-known texts; others draw attention to aspects of the Indonesian literary tradition that have hitherto escaped the notice of scholars and critics. Grounded in detailed analysis of local contexts, yet enlivened by comparative and theoretical perspectives, the collection places Indonesian literature at the heart of contemporary cultural concerns.
The contributors include Doris Jedamski, Paul Tickell, Henk Maier, Keith Foulcher, Thomas Hunter, Barbara Hatley, Goenawan Mohamad, Tony Day, Melani Budianta, Marshall Clark, Michael Bodden, Will Derks, and Ward Keeler.
