of the Indonesian Studies Committee, a professional group within the
Association for Asian Studies in the U.S.

Antara Kita contains several features that would benefit most
scholars who have an interest in Indonesia:

o Antara Kita provides insight into political,
economic, and social trends occurring in Indonesia.

every issue, written by volunteer contributors
across disciplines.

the extensive information about Indonesia which may
be obtained online.

Indonesia, work by Indonesian researchers, and
contributions by Indonesian students.

o Antara Kita offers information on obtaining research
visas and other insights into obtaining the necessary
permissions for field work.

o Antara Kita has a contemporary and cross-
disciplinary focus.

o Antara Kita appears 4 times a year at very
reasonable subscription rates. One may choose
between a paper and an email edition.

John MacDougall, editor of Indonesia Publications, and Rita Kipp,
professor of anthropology at Kenyon College, are respectively the editor
and book review editor of Antara Kita.

Submissions (small to large ones) and ideas (humble to grandiose) for
Antara Kita may be sent directly to the editors, ideally by email but also
by other available means.

The editors welcome reports of Indonesia-related recently completed
research and research-in-progress by faculty and students. Publishers are
