 Douglas Kammen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Southeast Asian Studies at the National University of Singapore.  His interest in Southeast began in 1983, when he had the opportunity to spend a summer in Solo, Central Java. At the time he heard a few guarded remarks about dead bodies left in the streets, but had no idea that the state was carrying out a campaign extra-judicial executions known as the ‘Mysterious Killings.’

 

After completing his PhD, Douglas Kammen taught in the Department of Political Science at Canterbury University (1998-2000), was a Fulbright Senior Scholar at Universitas Hasanuddin in Makassar (2000-2001), and then taught at the Universidade Nacional Timor Lorosae in Dili (2001-2003). His research interests include labour and social movements, military politics, and popular political thinking.
