In Activist Archives Doreen Lee tells the origins, experiences, and legacy of the radical Indonesian student movement that helped end the thirty-two year dictatorship in May of 1998. Lee situates the revolt as the most recent manifestation of student activists claiming a political and historical inheritance passed down by earlier generations of politicized youth. Combining historical and ethnographic analysis of "generation 98," Lee offers rich depictions of the generational structures, nationalist sentiments, organizational and private spaces that bound these activists together. She examines the ways the movement shaped new and youthful ways of looking, seeing, and being—found in archival documents from the 1980s and 1990s; the connections between politics and place; narratives of state violence; activists' experimental life-styles; and the uneven development of democratic politics on and off the street. Lee illuminates how the interaction between official history, collective memory, and performance come to define youth citizenship and resistance in Indonesia’s transition to the post-Suharto present.
