My research has focused on how Indonesians perceive and describe the relationship between the past and the present when it comes to the mass killings and detentions of 1965-1966 and their aftermath. In "Ripples, Echoes, and Reverberations: 1965 and Now in Indonesia," which is based on over two years of fieldwork in Java, I illuminate the ways in which the events of 1965-1966 continue to emerge in daily life in Indonesia today, powerfully shaping the subjectivities, social worlds, experiences, and identities of people nearly 50 years after the killings first began.
