Abstract

Sleeping Beauties, Hidden Forces - Archaeological and historical sites and the dynamics of heritage formation in colonial and postcolonial Indonesia studies the dynamics of archaeological knowledge production and heritage formation in colonial, postcolonial and contemporary Indonesia. The main question is: what was the impact of archeological research and knowledge on colonial and national identity formation and perceptions of (trans)national citizenship? What notions of time and space, of history and political geographical borders, of self and other have been connected to archeological and historical heritage and what is their meaning today in academic/museological and state-based discourses?
