Chapter Summary

The process of globalization showed an erratic pattern of growth with intermittent phases of decline. Even Osterhammel and Petersson recognized that the globalization process, now powered by the information revolution, underwent enormous acceleration and intensification in the last few decades. This chapter analyses KITLV's intellectual context in terms of modernism, postmodernism and postcolonialism. The preparations for the Programme for Indonesian Studies (PRIS) started in 1970, when the Cultural Agreement between the Netherlands and Indonesia became operative. The modern Indonesian linguistics and literature practice within the framework of KITLV was for a large part the work of two linguists who had originally studied Slavic languages: Wim Stokhof and Hein Steinhauer. As the background for her collection on colonial women's history, Locher-Scholten identified both the stimulating influence of the Work Group Indonesian Women's Studies and her temporary appointment with the Women's Studies Literature department in Utrecht.
