Since the early history of Indonesia, the Indonesian people have continually been in contact with a number of foreign cultures. Particularly, Hinduism, Islam, and the West have had significant impact on the development of Indonesian culture. This course is designed as an introduction to the rich performing arts and culture of Indonesia. A principal theme will be the differing intercultural and interreligious experiences in the two neighboring and related cultures of Java and Bali. In light of the increasingly contentious global geopolitical environment in our post-9/11 world, the course pays special attention to the impact of the recent deeper Islamization of Indonesian society on performing arts. A portion of the course is devoted to demonstrations and workshops, including instruction of performance of Terbangan (an Islamic frame drum ensemble) and Gamelan (percussion ensemble of Java and Bali).
