Middle Classes, new Media and Indie Networks in Post-Authoritarian Indonesia DP0984681

This project documented and critically analysed the activities of a digitally-equipped generation of urban middle class Indonesians in shaping public culture. It focused on 'indie' (for independent) networks, sites of the production and consumption of films and music that make intensive use of new media technologies. The project was the first in depth study of the wider socio-political significance of the boom in self-produced media in Indonesia at a time when post-authoritarianism and the digital age coincided.
