From Monologue to Dialogue: Radio and Reform in Indonesia analyses how radio journalism since the late 1990s has been shaped by and contributed to Reformasi, or the ambition of democratizing Indonesian politics, economy and society. The book examines ideas and practices such as independent journalism, peace journalism, meta-journalism, virtual interactivity, talk-back radio and community radio, which have all been designed to renew audience interest in media and societal affairs. It pays special attention to radio programmes that enable hosts, experts, listeners and other participants to discuss and negotiate the very rules and boundaries of Indonesia’s newly acquired media freedom. The author argues that these contemporary programmes provide dialogic alternatives to the official New Order discourse dominated by monologism.

This article focuses on the oeuvre of Indonesian journalist, essayist, and literary author Veven Sp. Wardhana (1959–2013). This oeuvre constitutes a critical and creative documentation of the role of the media, particularly television, in Indonesia’s transition from authoritarianism to democracy. The article will contextualize Wardhana’s work by comparing it with the activities of the independent Indonesian Broadcasting Commission and the broader media watch and media literacy movement. Wardhana’s writings stand out for their identification of the recurring and interrelated issues in Indonesian media history; conceptualization of Indonesia as a televised world; and creative reworking of television in an experimental literary form. Unlike the formal mechanisms of media regulation, his work approaches the media not merely in terms of institutions and content, but rather as socio-cultural environments and ecologies. The author argues that the work of creative actors like Wardhana could constitute an answer to the lack of resources in Indonesian Media and Cultural Studies departments.
