From late May to early June I gave a series of guest lectures at several universities in Makassar – Hasanuddin University (Unhas), Muhammadiyah University of Makassar (Unismuh), and Bosowa University (Unibos) – on social science methodologies, trends in research on Indonesian Islam, and state-society relations in Southeast Asia respectively. I wrote a bit about the lecture at Unismuh here. The other two events were great too – at Unhas, I had a lot of fun discussing about social science methodologies and philosophy of science with academic colleagues (graduate students and lecturers, whereas at Unibos I managed to spark a pretty lively discussion on capitalist transformation and state-society relations in Southeast Asia with international relations students. Again, many thanks for colleagues and friends in Makassar for these opportunities!
