Jaap   Timmer

Associate Professor
Discipline of Anthropology, School of Social Sciences
Macquarie University (Australia)

I am interested in culture change, the experience of time, and political theology. My regional interest is in the Southwest Pacific and Southeast Asia, with particular emphasis on Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, West Papua, Maluku, and Kalimantan. I am the author of Living with Intricate Futures (2000), a monograph on knowledge and religion among the Imyan of West Papua. Recently, I have begun to focus on historicity, Christianity, and lost tribes in Solomon Islands, and Islamic historiography versus Christian theocracy in West Papua.
