Representation of the Chinese-Indonesian in Popular Media Post-Suharto
Supervisor: Prof. Ben Arps

Research project

After the downfall of Suharto, there is an impression that the Chinese-Indonesian are more accepted and acknowledged by the pribumi, as increasingly more Chinese-Indonesian public figures appear on popular media. Therefore, this research aims to analyze how Indonesian media portray the ethnic Chinese. Moreover, this research seeks to analyze the perception of both the Chinese-Indonesian and pribumi Indonesian on the portrayal of Chinese-Indonesians in the media.
