Participants will be asked to read "A World in Fragments: Bali in the Aftermath of Mass Violence" from her book-in-progress on the aftermath of mass violence in Indonesia. Dr. Dwyer's presentation will address her current research focusing particularly on the selected reading. 

Professor Dwyer’s current research project, which has been supported by a grant from the United States Institute of Peace, addresses the aftermath of political violence in Bali, Indonesia. Working in collaboration with the Balinese anthropologist Degung Santikarma and with university and activist colleagues in Indonesia, she has spent over four years conducting intensive ethnographic fieldwork on how the state-sponsored violence of 1965-66, in which an estimated 500,000-1 million Indonesians were massacred as alleged communists, shifted cultural landscapes, shaping possibilities for personhood, political agency, community identity and narrative. 

Lunch will be provided!

Please RSVP to Alison Castel ASAP at and she will provide Professor Dwyer's selection.
