Fulbright US Student Program Year 2019
Galen is a PhD student in social anthropology at Harvard University.
For his US Fulbright Student Researcher grant, he is conducting one year of ethnographic fieldwork in Jakarta examining the everyday lives, practices, discourses, and ethics of journalists, editors, government officials, and citizens involved in the production and regulation of the Indonesian news media industry.
His goal is to produce a not only a dissertation but to advance a set of practical and theoretical lessons and provocations that can be used by journalists, policy-makers, and citizens in Indonesia and elsewhere to conceive of new ways to address age-old problems of truth and power in the production of knowledge.
Galen’s research is affiliated with the Faculty of Communication Studies at Atma Jaya University.
