Speak no evil: inversion and evasion in Indonesia.

How and where does evil emerge? Under what conditions is it recognized, named or denied?  In this talk, I look at how the problem of evil, locally conceived, is reconfigured under the pressure of conversion and the incorporation of small-scale societies into the modern state. On this broader stage, how does evil change shape and meaning? How is the primordial updated? (Nias and Java, Indonesia)
