Dibawah ini merupakan abstract dari Islamisation and its opponents in Indonesia: How Past and Present Compare”,
The Islamisation of the Javanese is a process that has been going on at
least since the 14th century, with many twists and turns to the story.
From the point of view of those who have promoted deeper Islamisation,
there has been both progress and opposition. This history is the
subject of a series of three books by Merle Ricklefs. The first two have been published: Mystic synthesis in Java: A history of Islamisation from the 14th to the early 19th centuries (2006) and Polarising Javanese society: Islamic and other visions, c. 1830-1930 (2007). Research on the period since the 1930s is ongoing, with the current focus on the period since c. 1998.
The variety of Islamic styles in Java is complex and the social,
political and cultural dynamics more complicated than simple categories can suggest. Comparing the past – especially after the mid-nineteenth century, when social polarisation and conflict emerged over issues of religious identity – with the events of the last decade suggests a number of parallels and contrasts that may help us to understand current dynamics.
In his talk, Professor Ricklefs will explore these parallels and
consider what light they may shed on contemporary affairs in Indonesia .
