Karel Steenbrink

Authors / Reviewer

Born in Breda 16 Jan. 1942. Professor Emeritus Intercultural theology, Utrecht University.

Steenbrink wrote his doctoral dissertation 1974 about Islamic Education in Modern Indonesia. Between 1978-1988 he was the coordinator for the cooperation between Leiden University and the State Islamic Universities of Indonesia (now UIN). He taught in Jakarta and Yogyakarta between 1981-1988. From 1989 Steenbrink worked at Utrecht University, where he taught Islam, but also Christianity in Asia. He wrote three volumes on Catholics in Indonesia (Leiden: KITLV, 2003 and 2007, vol. 3 expected late 2014) and edited together with Jan Aritonang the 1004 pages classical History of Christianity in Indonesia (Leiden: Brill). But he is still active as well in Islamic Studies, especially courses in Qur’an. He wrote in Dutch a commentary on the short suras 79-114 (De Korte Hoofdstukken van de Koran), on the Jesus Verses of the Qur’an, and a commentary of Surat al-Baqarah.

About Us

For short, our main feature, the writer's directory, provides a way for writers to find one another, but more importantly, the resources provided make it easy for event hosts—especially for international event hosts—literary organizers, arts administrators, librarians, booksellers, and readers to get in touch with writers. It's a HOME FOR INDONESIAN WRITERS. We strive to break down the language barriers that have prevented Indonesian books or literature from becoming more widespread.

Questions, comments, articles, info, etc. are more than welcome. Just send us an e-mail, mention us on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook or use the contact form.
