It was a trip around Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore in her twenties that ignited Pam Nilan's love affair with Asian culture and society. Fast forward to 2013 and Professor Nilan is fluent in Indonesian and still finds Asia "utterly compelling".

As a youth sociologist with a passion for Indonesia, Professor Pam Nilan has devoted much of her academic career to studying young people both in Australia and abroad and still finds them "infinitely interesting".

"Someone once suggested to me that at my age I should start studying older people - but it is youth and youth culture that excites me," Professor Nilan says.

"I have always been intrigued by the transition from childhood to adulthood - that age where people are still childlike in their openness to new ideas but at the same time socially active and engaging with the world. It is a really interesting cusp that enables them to look backwards and forwards at the same time. I never tire of studying it."

Professor Nilan is currently a Chief Investigator on an ARC Discovery Grant: Fostering Pro-Environment Consciousness and Practice: Environmentalism, Environmentality and Environmental Education in Indonesia.

The project aims to foster environmental awareness in Indonesia by investigating how some people have become environmentally aware, and by evaluating various environmental education and activism projects.

"I've noticed over the past three years more young people are espousing environmental causes in Asia such as rehabilitation of rainforests, preservation of native species, limiting of palm oil plantations and reducing air pollution," Professor Nilan says.

"Young people in Indonesia are quite connected to environmental causes but don't tend to get involved in mass rallies or protests. They use more creative ideas to get their message across, such as making music about environmental causes and forming large teams to conduct 'friendly' clean up campaigns with local councils."

"We're seeing the dawn of a new environmental consciousness in Indonesia with the birth of ideas around cleaning up the local area, taking public transport and riding bikes – it's the reinvention of a new aspect of youth culture," Professor Nilan says.

Youth, gender, formation of identity and popular culture are strong themes in the substantial research portfolio Professor Nilan has amassed, which includes co-authorship of three books on Australian and global youth culture. She also recently co-authored a book on adolesence in Indonesia.

 Her love of Southeast Asia and the cultures of the Asia-Pacific region is also reflected in her research work, which has taken her to Indonesia, Vietnam and Fiji to undertake significant sociological studies.

She has also completed a major two-year project funded by AusAID called Masculinities and Violence in Indonesia and India, which followed on from her previous Indonesia-based studies on adolescent culture and masculinities of young men. Pam was a Chief Investigator on the Indonesian component of the study and project leader of the international team of researchers. 

"Indonesia and India have histories of civil violence but most of the past research has been around aspects like religiously motivated violence, mass insurgencies or domestic violence - the role of masculinity and its constructions had not been considered," Pam explains.

"We looked at the question of why some men stand back and watch violence and others get involved. To understand that you need to see violence as a form of cultural repertoire, something that can, in certain situations, win respect and bring rewards."

While unemployment and poverty were acknowledged as contributing factors to violence, the research led to some interesting observations on links between low socio-economic status and violence.

"What I have found, both from our data and wider studies, is that there isn't a direct correlation," Pam says. "In areas where everybody is poor, you don't have a high incidence of violence. Where you do see more frequent violence is where there are discrepancies in the socio-economic status of people in the same community - so it is more about inequality of status than poverty per se."

In 2012 she undertook an Australian-embassy sponsored lecture tour through Indonesia with colleague Dr Argyo Demartoto, of Central Java's University Sebelas Maret, to present their findings on masculinity and violence in Indonesia to a wide audience of academics, students, government officials and representatives of aid and development organisations.

Having studied and written on Indonesia since 1995, Professor Nilan's insight into the country is frequently sought by the media and policy makers and she has worked as a consultant to the Australian government and AusAID. Her work brings a unique specialty to FEDUA's research profile - and has fostered academic exchange between students and researchers from Newcastle and Indonesia."Indonesia is a vast, diverse and really fascinating country but it is a country the average Australian still doesn't know a lot about," says Pam, "I think it is important for Australia's role in the region to have people like me who continue to research there and feed knowledge back to the academic community."

This article looks at how five environmental leaders in Jogjakarta became environmentally active, and at the groups and interventions they formed. Interview data are drawn from a broader project that aimed to find out what might turn an Indonesian person into someone who cares for the environment. It examines the journey in leadership as "becoming" in the terms of Deleuze and Guattari (1987); a journey constituted in the desire to make something different. Against a backdrop of day-today practices in Central Java that do not favour environmental conservation and sustainability, the five informants seized upon an idea, a praxis, and explored it in the company of like-minded others, to join or make an organisation or action dedicated to redressing environmental crisis or neglect.

This article investigates the ¿becoming¿ of queer female punx in the contemporary hardcore scene in a regional Australian city. Twelve young women aged 20¿30 years were interviewed about their experiences of queer identity. They emphasized their involvement in the music scene as a key catalyst for the development of a queer punk identity even though the local hardcore scene is male-dominated and homosocial. We find that these young female queer punx assert their identity through collectively summoning and synthesizing the counternormative resources of both queer and punk Do It Yourself (DIY) to configure the space of hardcore differently. Our findings confirm the durability of a playful, subversive punk ethos in constituting challenges to the normative.

This article explores male perceptions and attitudes toward violence against women in Indonesia. It analyzes interview data from Indonesian men collected as part of a large multimethod Australian government-funded project on masculinities and violence in two Asian countries. Reluctance to talk about violence against women was evident, and the accounts of those men who did respond referred to three justificatory discourses: denial, blaming the victim, and exonerating the male perpetrator. The findings support continuation of government and nongovernmental organization (NGO) projects aimed at both empowering women and reeducating men. © The Author(s) 2014.

This paper reports on data from a 2009-2010 project on masculinity and violence, part of which was conducted in Indonesia. The data here come from semi-structured interviews with 86 men in five cities, with minor reference to survey findings. Using a Foucauldian interpretive framework, we focus primarily on how these Indonesian men view police intervention in comparison to resolving the problem of violence within their community through mediation. The issue here is that while community mediation approaches are regarded positively, at present, it only seems to be religious leaders who are trusted to resolve conflicts effectively through this approach. Suspicion of mediation interventions and other measures that are tied to the authority of the state means that the promise of service-oriented policing reforms may not be effectively implemented. © 2014 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.

The experience of job market disadvantage is not a novel phenomenon for some in contemporary Australia, even in the face of embedded equal employment opportunity (EEO) ideals. This article addresses the phenomenon of persistent job market disadvantage for some minority groups by presenting new data from a major multi-method study on labor market obstacles for Muslims seeking jobs in Australia. Responses from jobseekers and employment service providers are analyzed together to consider how EEO principles are experienced by Muslims who engage with employment services and move in and out of the labor force. The article proposes that key EEO tenets-freedom from discrimination and support to overcome disadvantage-are not represented at present in many Muslim jobseeker experiences. Furthermore, these same EEO principles appear to be somewhat compromised in employment service provision to Muslim jobseekers and, by extension, to other disadvantaged minority jobseekers. We offer some suggestions as to how the spirit of EEO legislation might be better reflected in support of Muslim jobseekers. It is concluded that an all government approach may be needed to counter the deep mistrust of Muslims in Australian society. © 2013 Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs.
