Book launch – Dreams made small: The education of Papuan Highlanders in Indonesia

The School of Social Science invites guests to the book launch of Jenny Munro’s book Dreams made small: The education of Papuan Highlanders in Indonesia at the Anthropology Museum, The University of Queensland, Michie Building.

Description

For the last five decades, the Dani of the central highlands of West Papua, along with other Papuans, have struggled with the oppressive conditions of Indonesian rule. Formal education holds the promise of escape from stigmatization and violence. Dreams Made Small offers an in-depth, ethnographic look at journeys of education among young Dani men and women, asking us to think differently about education as a trajectory for transformation and belonging, and ultimately revealing how dreams of equality are shaped and reshaped in the face of multiple constraints.
