CIMS Brown Bag Talk: Unremembering the Loss of the Dutch East Indies, 1945-1995 - Free

This talk will touch on key themes of Dr Paul Doolan's recently published ‘Collective Memory and the Dutch East Indies. Unremembering Decolonization' (De Gruyter, 2021), a book that explores “how five decades of representing and remembering decolonization fed into an unremembering by which some key notions were silenced or ignored.”
