Alit Ambara will partner with Institut Sejarah Sosial Indonesia (ISSI) to present photographs of the victims of the 1965–66 violence in an interactive, multimedia teaching module to be used in Indonesian high school history classes. The project will draw upon ISSI’s collection of over five hundred photos documenting the events of 1965–66 and the experiences of the victims. The goal of the project is not only to promote a more thorough and nuanced understanding of this history, but also to encourage visual literacy and critical thinking about media coverage.
