About the Project
The aim of the research will be to document traditional understandings of health in a region/ethnic group of the student's interest. Indonesia has experienced very intense social and cultural change over the last two decades, as well as incursion by English which has also brought western concepts of health and illness. Over the same period, mental health has been deteriorating and many people have been adversely affected by strong social forces like urbanization and gloablization that cannot be resisted. As a result, many people experience gaps in cultural consonance. This is, in itself, a health issue but it is also extremely significant in understanding other health issues. This research will allow for the provision of more effective health services, more appropriate treatment options, and a better, more nuanced understanding of health in Indonesia. It will use an eth ographic approach to understand the health experience of selected individuals in a region/culture/language of the student's choice.
