Connectivity and divergence

Join the Australian National University's Indonesia Project and the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre for the launch of Digital Indonesia: connectivity and divergence (ISEAS Singapore 2017).

When: 11:30am-2pm, Friday, 28 July 2017

Where: Sutherland Room, level 4, Holme Building, Science Road, University of Sydney

Digital Indonesia: connectivity and divergence (ISEAS Singapore 2017), edited by Dr Ross Tapsell from the ANU's College of Asia and the Pacific and Dr Edwin Jurriëns from the University of Melbourne will be launched at the University of Sydney by Dr Ross Tapsell, author of the chapter, 'The media industry'. 

The launch will be followed by papers from Professor Gerard Goggin (Professor of Media and Communications Department, University of Sydney), Dr Ross Tapsell, and Mr Bede Moore (Co-founder of Lazada Indonesia).

Digital Indonesia: connectivity and divergence is the product of the Indonesia Project's annual conference, Indonesia Update. The 2016 conference theme, 'Digital Indonesia', resulted in a collection of interdisciplinary essays exploring the digitalisation of Indonesia.

The publication presents ground-breaking analysis of the impact of digitalisation in one of the world’s most diverse, geographically vast nations. In weighing arguments about the opportunities and challenges presented by digitalisation, it puts the very idea of a technological revolution into critical perspective.

This interdisciplinary collection of essays by leading researchers and scholars, as well as e-governance and eCommerce insiders, examines the impact of digitalisation in Indonesia on the media industry, governance, commerce, informal sector employment, education, cyber crime, terrorism, religion, artistic and cultural expression, and much more. Books will be for sale at the launch.
