Abstract [en]

The early modern period saw a very comprehensive import of textiles from South Asia to the Malay Archipelago. Such cloths could be high-quality products which were coveted as status items as far as Maluku and beyond, such as the well-known patola (double-woven ikat). The imported goods also included less expensive cotton cloths. This trade has a long history that goes back before the advent of European economic and political interference. Europeans, especially the VOC, tried to control the trade flows with varying success. The paper discusses how the import of Indian textiles underpinned political structures and networks in Nusa Tenggara Timor and Maluku from the 16th to the 19th centuries, analyzing the way that import goods was indigenized and became important symbols for authority and redistribution, something that is mirrored in early-modern (mostly European) documents as well as later tradition. Through this, we may discern how a consumer culture developed in a mainly nonWestern context which was however connected to early colonial economic management and shipping.

2019 (English)In: Wacana, ISSN 1411-2272, E-ISSN 2407-6899, Vol. 20, no 3, p. 480-506Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The article is focused on early colonial interaction with the Aru Islands, geographically located in southern Maluku, at the easternmost end of the Indian Ocean world. The study examines how relationships were constructed in the course of the seventeenth century, how they were institutionalized and how this engendered forms of hybridity. Moreover, it discusses forms of resistance and avoidance in relation to the Dutch East India Company (VOC). Aru constitutes an interesting case as it is was one of the easternmost places in the world in which Islam and Christianity gained a (limited) foothold in the early-modern period, and it also marked the outer limit of Dutch authority. Aru differed from most geographical areas approached by the VOC because of its lack of any large-scale political structures and its relatively non-hierarchical society. The article discusses the forging of Dutch-Arunese political ties after the Banda massacre in 1621, as well as the role of Asian competitors of the VOC such as the Makassarese and Ceramese, the increasing adaptation to world religions in an Arunese setting, conditions in the European-indigenous contact zones and, finally, the conflicts arising from the imbalances between western and eastern Aru, in which the VOC repeatedly intervened to suppress the villages of the Backshore (east coast).

Abstract [en]

The chapter proposes an approach to the study of Timorese historicity that implies crossing archival records from different European languages and subject positions. The question of “how to formulate a Timorese history of Timor” must consider the contribution of early modern Western-authored accounts, in which “indigenous voices” can also often be found. However, a Timor-centered historiography should also not be reduced to European accounts. In the case of Timor-Leste, a full answer to that question, the author proposes, resides in a work of “triangulation of source materials”: triangulation between Portuguese and Dutch written documents; between these and the East Timorese oral record (as this can be retrieved from ritual keepers, such as the lian na’in); or still between the latter and the findings of archaeology and linguistics.

Abstract [sv]

Berättelser om det fantastiska, det som överträffar det realistiskt observerbara, finns i snart sagt alla kultursfärer. Deras gestaltning och funktionssätt skiljer sig kraftigt från plats till plats, även om vissa troper tenderar att komma igen. Detta paper gör en jämförelse mellan pseudohistoriska texter i tre olika kulturella kontexter. Det gäller medeltida europeiska, premoderna kinesiska och premoderna sydöstasiatiska texter som utger sig för att beskriva ett avlägset förgånget. Här diskuteras hur dessa texters tematik förhåller sig till varandra när det gäller att inkorporera fantastiska element såsom övernaturliga varelser, krafter m m. Dessa inslag av fantastik relateras till textgenrernas funktion (underhållning, litterär konst, legitimation, etc).
