Today and the past, its connection and reflection

I am interested in looking closely into the subject of connection between today and the past, and how this connection can be understood more reflectively in our current life. When I was first invited to participate in this project, I was kind of stuck. But then I met Kaleb de Groot who shares with me an interest in the problem of violence in the context of colonial past. Kaleb has worked on the narration surrounding the Aceh War and the impact on the life of Acehnese people. It was my meeting with Kaleb that eventually freed me from obstacle obstructing my idea for Rethinking Home project.
