Digital Peripheries features writings and musings about global digital media cultures, particularly in Indonesian contexts by Iskandar “Izul” Zulkarnain.

I teach in the Media and Society Program at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.

My research deals with global digital media cultures, with particular interest in Indonesia. Currently I’m working on several projects such as the early history of Indonesian video games culture and Indonesian digital nationalism phenomenon.

From 2016-2021 I co-organized the Global Digital Humanities (DH) Working Group with funding from the Central New York Humanities Corridor/Mellon Foundation. The Global DH Working Group is created to explore issues and debates key to the development of a more critical, comprehensive, and global perspective of digital humanities practice.

      Hi Hakim,
      Thanks for your kind words. It’s really great to see other Indonesians doing similar research on digital nationalism. Sure, you can email me anytime, I’m more than happy to discuss about Indonesian digital nationalism with you. Best of luck with your proposal!
