KASS #2: The Power of Language in Indonesian Literary and Cultural Expressions

The Power of Language in Indonesian Literary and Cultural Expressions

Language does not only communicate the realities, but it also constructs the realities in our day-to-day life. When language is used, and sometimes “exploited”, in literary and cultural expressions such as poetry and novels, it seems so powerful that it brings with it the unrealized, repressed, and ambiguous social and ideological meanings beyond the surface encounters with the works. This is interesting, and at the same time, challenging to be talked about.
This session offers a warm discussion on the power of language (Indonesian and English) in Indonesian novels and poetry.
Date: Friday, August 14th 2020
Time: 10 AM-12PM (Jakarta Time)
