Steve Miller is a lecturer of Indonesian Language on the Hobart Campus.
Before beginning an academic career Stephen worked on the ABC radio documentary "Journey of an Exile" about the Indonesian exile poet Agam Wispy and a PBS documentary about globalisation, amongst other things. From 2001 until early 2009 he lectured in Indonesian language and culture at the University of New England.
Stephen Miller's research interests include Indonesian communism and culture, Indonesian exile literature and the history of the Indonesian Left in general. In 1994, he completed an honours degree at Australian National University, writing on the 1960s journalism of Indonesia's premier (and at that time banned) novelist, Pramoedya Ananta Toer (1925-2006). This research later came to play a role in a national media controversy in Indonesia following the awarding of the Magsaysay prize to Pramoedya in 1995. (Copy of thesis PDF).
