Professor Rudolf Mrázek studied and taught history at Charles University in Prague and Cornell University in Ithaca. Since 1990, he has taught the modern history of Southeast Asia, technology of colonialism, intellectual, and oral history. He will retire in December 2013 but will stay in Ann Arbor and continue to work with his graduate students. Among other books he has published Sjahrir: Politics and Exile in Indonesia (Ithaca, 1994), Engineers of Happy Land (Princeton, 2002), and A Certain Age: Colonial Jakarta through the Memories of Its Intellectuals (Durham, 2010).
At the Eisenberg Institute, Professor Mrazek will finish his manuscript, Complete Lives of Camp People, a book-length study of “concentrated modernity” based on historical cases of two encaged communities – Indonesian freedom fighters isolated in Boven Digoel, colonial Dutch New Guinea (1927-1945), and Jews held in the ghetto Theresienstadt, Nazi Bohemia (1942-1945).
