Sociotechnical Imaginaries and Civil Society in New Order Indonesia

(p.174) Eight Building from the Outside In
Dreamscapes of Modernity

University of Chicago Press

By focusing on the sociotechnical imaginaries at work outside the state, this chapter explores the ways in which civil society actors and groups may oppose, counter, or redirect the priorities and privileges of state-authorized social order. It examines the sociotechnical imaginary taken up by Hasan Poerbo—a leading Indonesian advocate of community participation in mass-housing projects—and the ways this imaginary worked to counter the dominant vision of technological and economic change in Suharto's New Order Indonesia of the 1970s and 1980s.

Keywords:   sociotechnical imaginary, community participation, housing projects, Hasan Poerbo, Indonesia, Muhammad Hatta, building technologies, new order Indonesia
