Ferdiansyah Thajib

Ferdiansyah Thajib is a PhD candidate at the Institute for Social and Cultural Anthropology at Freie Universität Berlin and a member of KUNCI Cultural Studies Center in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. KUNCI has recently initiated the School of Improper Education (http://sekolah.kunci.or.id) as an experiment on the (im-)material sustainability of institutional practices. Within the ever-shifting class settings that structure the school, all participants are encouraged to reflectively engage different forms of knowledge circulation. Designed as a platform which strives on the principles of uncertainty and curiosity; the school’s main activities revolve around the study on the meanings of studying and the ways to study these meanings.
