Professor Krishna Sen

Professor Krishna Sen graduated from the University of Calcutta with a Bachelor of Arts degree with Honours in History. She is an internationally recognized scholar of contemporary Indonesian and media studies and is fluent in several South and Southeast Asian languages.

Sankari Sivaramalingam

When Sankari Sivaramalingam moved away from home in her twenties, she quickly found her confidence through self-expression. A spontaneous haircut lead to another, and then another, and another more. It didn’t take long before she realised the implications of her actions and had to deal with the consequences.

Iven Manning

Iven Manning studied Indonesian and Linguistics at the University of Western Australia. His interests include East Indonesian literature, music and ikat textiles. At present Iven is translating a collection of short stories by Dicky Senda, a writer from West Timor, running a monthly Indonesian Literature Club at the Centre for Stories, and teaching English as a second language.

This event is located in the suburb of North Fremantle (6159).

Exact location of backyard will be emailed to ticket holders before the event.
