Contingent Coping and Social Reproduction in Response to Pandemic Job Losses Among Indonesian Labourers in Central Java

PI Prastyanti (UNSOED) will collaborate with Nunn (LTU) to develop a programme of research on social inequalities in the post-pandemic period in Banyumas, Indonesia. Prastyanti will work on theoretical development within the Feminist Social Reproduction literature.

The Fellowship will be used to develop two co-authored outputs: an exploratory theoretical application of the concepts of ‘Depletion through Social Reproduction’, ‘Compound Inequalities’ and ‘Contingent Coping’, to the Indonesian context and an empirical output applying them to secondary data on the post-pandemic context in Banyamas. Prastyanti and Nunn will also develop a proposal for a future research project based on qualitative fieldwork in Banyumas to deepen the enquiry. During the fellowship, Prastyanti will support Nunn in developing research methods capacity building at LTU (based on the outputs from a previous BA Grant) and transfer these to UNSOED, as well as establishing a pilot for joint student research projects at Undergraduate level.
