About this book

This book investigates the importance of gender and resistance to silences and denials concerning human rights abuses and historical injustices in narratives on transnational memories of three violent conflicts in Indonesia. Transnational memories of violent conflicts travel abroad with politicians, postcolonial migrants and refugees. Starting with the Japanese occupation of Indonesia (1942–1945), the war of independence (1945–1949) and the genocide of 1965, the volume analyses narratives in Dutch and Indonesian novels in relation to social and political narratives (1942–2015). By focusing on gender and resistance from both Indonesian and Dutch, transnational and global perspectives, the author provides new perspectives on memories of the conflicts that are relevant to research on transitional justice and memory politics.

Reviews

"​Stoltz's exploration into three violent struggles in Indonesia (1942-45; 1945-49 and 1965) raises crucial questions about the role of silence, voice and agency in these Indonesian conflict zones. Drawing on post-colonial, gendered, and intersectional perspectives, Stoltz demonstrates the power of these approaches for understanding our complicated, often conflicted, postcolonial world. The book will interest scholars, social activists, and government agencies around the world."— Jane Parpart, Visiting Professor, University of Massachusetts, Boston, USA; Emeritus Professor, Dalhousie University, Canada; Adjunct Professor, University of Ottawa and Carleton University, Canada
"In this innovative approach to memory politics and transitional justice, the author uses an insightful analysis of four major novels to discuss the silences about the three major periods of violence in modern Indonesian history, both from the Indonesian and the Dutch side."— Saskia E. Wieringa, Chair of Women’s Same-Sex Relations Crossculturally, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands 
“In recent years both fields Memory Studies and Transitional Justice increasingly intersect, leading to important conceptual debates, to which this book makes its contribution. Highlighting the intersectional nature of people’s experiences of injustices, the author has an important message when addressing the structural dimensions of marginalisation; how historical conflicts resulted in inequalities that still hurt.”— Nicole Immler, Associate Professor, University of Humanistic Studies, the Netherlands
