Ravando Lie

Ravando Lie is a PhD candidate in the School of Historical and Philosophical Studies at the University of Melbourne. His thesis examines a Chinese-Indonesian newspaper called Sin Po (1910-1965) as a lens to explore the political movements and transnational connections of Chinese-Indonesian society in the Dutch East Indies.

Ravando Lie looks at what lessons the colonial government’s experience with the 1918 Spanish Flu could provide for Indonesia as it struggles to get on top of Covid-19.
