Queering Indonesia: Self, Subjectivity and Crisis

Submitted by on – No Comment


IFJ Vol.4 No.1, March 2016Indonesian Feminist Journal Vol. 4 No. 1 March 2016

Those experiences defend a specific understanding of philosophy as social critique. It owes its conceptual tools from the long struggle against racism and the history of slavery. In Indonesia, the tradition of phenomenology explores women’s experiences facing state violence as well as society’s unjust treatment against LGBT’s voices. The relationship between language and linguistic meaning as cultural marker has sharpened the way state and society rejected equality. Indonesia fails to think of history of transgendering, of Srikandi’s transgendering in Mahabharata epic. Or the ritual role of Banyuwangi transgendered males.
