In Ummah Yet Proletariat, Lin Hongxuan explores the relationship between Islam and Marxism in the Netherlands East Indies (NEI) and Indonesia from the publication of the first Communist periodical in 1915 to the beginning of the 1965-66 massacres. Lin demonstrates how, in contrast to state-driven narratives, Muslim identity and Marxist analytical frameworks coexisted in Indonesian minds, as well as how individuals' Islamic faith shaped their openness to Marxist ideas. Examining Indonesian-language print culture, including newspapers, books, pamphlets, memoirs, letters, novels, plays, and poetry, Lin shows how deeply embedded confluences of Islam and Marxism were in the Indonesian nationalist project. He argues that these confluences were the result of Indonesian participation in networks of intellectual exchange across Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, of Indonesians "translating" the world to Indonesia in an ambitious project of creative adaptation.
Lin Hongxuan is Senior Tutor in the Department of Southeast Asian Studies at the National University of Singapore. In 2022, he was a Visiting Fellow at the Saw Swee Hock Centre for Southeast Asian Studies, London School of Economics and Political Science. A scholar of Indonesian history, his work has been published in Southeast Asian Studies, Studia Islamika, Positions: Asia Critique, and New Mandala.
