Abstract

The theme for this collection of articles is drawn front a March 2009 workshop on the broader topic of ‘Southeast Asian exiles: crossing cultural, political and religious borders’. From the dozen or so papers that ranged across the countries of southeast Asia, a selection of those focused on Indonesia are gathered together here.

The workshop brought together established and emerging scholars from Australia, Southeast Asia and Europe to analyse the production and articulation of cultural, political and religious networks formed by exiles from Southeast Asia The aim was threefold to explore the cultural, political and intellectual histories of exiles within and outside the Southeast Asia region; to examine how exiles engage in and maintain trans-national networks, based on cultural, political and religious affiliations within Southeast Asia and worldwide; and to explore how these networks have the potential to establish affiliations that figure as alternatives to the legal and cultural belonging to the nation state.
