About Johanes

Johanes Herlijanto joined our International Relations Department in early 2014. He previously taught at Chinese Studies Department of the University of Indonesia, Depok. Johanes received a PhD from Macquarie University, Australia (2012) and Vrije University, the Netherlands (2013) under a cotutelle joint PhD scheme. His dissertation, entitled ‘Emulating China: Representation of China and the Contemporary Critique of Indonesia’, examines how a changing perception of China has come into being in the Post-New Order Indonesia, especially since the world ushered the 21st century.

Johanes began his career in academia in 1996, immediately after he completed his Bachelor of Arts in Chinese Studies at the University of Indonesia. In 2004, 2 years after obtaining a Master of Science in Sociology from the same university, he was selected to be one of the recipients of the Asia Fellows Awards, an award administered by the Asian Scholarship Foundation, Bangkok. The award enabled him to stay in Kuala Lumpur and Penang for a period of 9 months to study Chinese women participations in contemporary Malaysian politics.

Johanes’ area of interest includes recent development in China, China-Indonesia relations, ethnic Chinese in Indonesia (including their role in China-Indonesia relations), ethnic Chinese in Southeast Asia, and Indonesian politics in general.
