Quinton Temby joined the Department of Political and Social Change in 2008. He holds a Bachelor of Asian Studies (Specialist) with First Class Honours from the Australian National University.
His PhD thesis seeks to understand the dynamics of radical Islam in Indonesia. Taking a historical approach, he will examine the ideological and institutional evolution of the Darul Islam movement - Indonesia’s seminal radical Islamic movement - during Suharto’s New Order regime. Social Movement Theory will be drawn upon to analyse the dynamics of this ‘imagined community’.
