  • Profile

    Khidir Marsanto Prawirosusanto is a PhD student/candidate at the Moving Matters program group at the Department of Anthropology and the AISSR, University of Amsterdam. Prior to joining the program, he was a junior lecturer at the Department of Anthropology, Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), Indonesia. Under supervision of Dr. Tina Harris and Dr. Luisa Steur, his current ethnographic project explores the relation between aerotropolis development, aviation (air transport), and how people in urban-periurban Indonesia imagine the future of their city. In this project he also focuses on how planners of Yogyakarta International Airport and the aerotropolis project are dealing with complex and contradictory local and national ambitions, as well as urban futures. For the last seven years, he has been engaged in several ethnographic research projects on transportation and technology, sovereignty, and urban politics in Indonesia. These projects were in collaboration with Dr. Sheri Gibbings (Wilfrid Laurier University), Dr. Joshua Barker (University of Toronto), and Dr. Elan Lazuardi (UGM).
