In­done­sian Her­itage So­ci­ety’s Evening Lec­ture Se­ries

19 Septem­ber – 12 De­cem­ber

Since 1973, the In­done­sian Her­itage So­ci­ety (IHS) has been or­ga­niz­ing the Evening Lec­tures Se­ries to fa­cil­i­tate dis­cus­sions about var­i­ous kinds of top­ics re­lated to In­done­sia. This year the foun­da­tion has de­cided to fo­cus on history, so­cial de­vel­op­ments, art, pol­i­tics and eco­nomics. The Evening Lec­ture Se­ries takes place at Eras­mus Huis and is open to the pub­lic. The lec­tures cost Rp. 50,000 ( US$ 3.70), or Rp. 30,000 ( US$ 2.75) for stu­dents. The lec­ture has started in Septem­ber, dis­cussing the cul­tural her­itage in Banda Is­lands. The up­com­ing lec­tures will start Oc­to­ber 17 with the theme ‘ Where Aus­tralia Col­lides with Asia.’ Ian Bur­net, who has spent thirty years liv­ing and trav­el­ing across In­done­sia will tell the re­mark­able story of his jour­ney when fol­low­ing the epic voy­ages of Bri­tish naturalist Al­fred Rus­sel Wal­lace around the eastern ar­chi­pel­ago. On Novem­ber 21, IHS will host an in­ter­ac­tive dis­cus­sion on the National Cap­i­tal In­te­grated Coastal Devel­op­ment and a col­lab­o­ra­tion project in­volv­ing In­done­sia and the Nether­lands that aims to pre­vent flood­ing in Jakarta in a ses­sion named ‘Gi­ant Sea­wall: Bless­ing or Curse?’ The fi­nal lec­ture will be held on De­cem­ber 12, ad­dress­ing the is­sue of pre­serv­ing tex­tiles in In­done­sia. Krzystof Mu­sial will be lead­ing the talk, ar­gu­ing that the peo­ple need to work to­gether to pre­serve tex­tiles, which have been around for cen­turies.
