  • Field Course in Conservation Biology & Global Health Tinjil Island, Indonesia, August 6th-27th, 2016 - August 6, 2016,

    Primate Research Center of Bogor Agricultural University (PSSP-IPB) in collaboration with Washington National Primate Research Center (WaNPRC), and the Center for Global Field Study (CGFS), University of Washington have conducted an annual field course in “Conservation Biology & Global Health” since 1995.  This unique international program allows students from Indonesia, the U.S., and other countries to study together at a remote field site as they participate in the field course and conduct individual research projects in Conservation Biology, Animal Behavior, Primatology, Environmental Science, and Global Health.  For additional information see our recent news story at:

    The program has been conducted on Tinjil Island, located about 16 km off the southwest coast of Banten, Indonesia.  Approximately 600 ha in size, this remote island consists of lowland tropical rainforest and coastal/beach vegetation, and has been developed as Natural Habitat Breeding Facility for long-tailed macaques (Macaca fascicularis). The island is surrounded by coral reef that provides home to a variety of aquatic marine animals. To date, more than 235 students and staff from Indonesia, and 98 students and staff from University of Washington and other countries have participated in this field study program.

    In addition to the field course, an outreach education program has been conducted for elementary school students in villages on Java (near Tinjil Island). The activity has important purpose to build awareness on how to conserve environment and biodiversity, an understanding of the close relationship with humans, and how to promote human health.


    Priority to participate on this field course will be given to students from universities in Indonesia and University of Washington. If space is still available, other participants are welcome to join the program. A maximum of 18 participants will be facilitated each year due to limited facilities on the island.


    The Field Course in Conservation Biology & Global Health will take place on Tinjil Island, while outreach education program will be conducted at Muara Binuangen in Banten, Indonesia from August 6th-27th, 2016.

  • 6th International Symposium of Journal of Anthropology Indonesia Department of Anthropology, University of Indonesia - July 26, 2016,

    Post-Reformasi Indonesia: The challenges of social inequalities and inclusion

    Since Reformasi began in 1998, Indonesia has experienced tremendous political, economic, social, and cultural transformations. The nation has made significant progress in building a more democratic polity. The general election in 2014 was an important turning point. The newly elected president, Joko Widodo (widely known as Jokowi), is the first with no ties to the Suharto regime  which many people take as a positive sign of change.

    When we organized the first Symposium of Jurnal Antropologi Indonesia in 2000, we were optimistic that Reformasi would improve the lives of Indonesians everywhere. In particular, we believed that greater political equality and increased multiculturalism would lead to greater social and economic equality. However Indonesia is experiencing rising income gaps , conflicts over access to resources and jobs, increasing religious intolerance, and continued marginalization of groups and individuals. Some scholars predict that these problems will continue because reformasi alone could not address the root causes of inequality.

    For the 6th International Symposium of the Journal of Anthropology Indonesia, we invite Indonesian and foreign scholars to propose panels and papers to discuss pressing issues associated with inequality. The objective of the symposium is to explore the  social, political-economic, and cultural dimensions of these inequalities, their underlying causes, and the challenges of addressing them. We seek contributions that critically analyze various forms and processes producing inequalities, including government and non- government initiatives and interventions meant to address these problems.
