Jacqueline Hicks joined the e-Humanities Group in April 2013 to work on the Elite Network Shifts project. As an Indonesianist, she engages with social network analysis methodologies to trace patterns of elite networks over two periods of regime transition in Indonesia.
She has worked on Indonesia for the past 14 years as an academic, journalist, political analyst and development consultant. After living in Indonesia for ten years, she spent the last two as a visiting fellow with the Southeast Asia Program at Cornell University.
Graduating with a PhD thesis on Indonesian corruption from Leeds University in 2004, her academic work initially drew from political economy approaches to contemporary politics. While at Cornell, her research has gained a greater historical, sociological and cultural depth to analyse Islamic politics and religious violence.
