LOBO (“the meeting place”) is a consortium of anthropologists, historians, linguists and human geographers working with the peoples of Central Sulawesi to provide accessible scholarship about the region. We define this region loosely and include parts of the provinces of Sulawesi Tengah, Sulawesi Selatan and Sulawesi Barat.
The aim of the journal is to provide peer reviewed research publications of Sulawesi scholars in translation; these translations will be made available in either Bahasa Indonesia or the indigenous languages of Sulawesi. On our website you will also find an archives of manuscript material of historical importance; a blog on new research; and our project space for open access research projects (such as the Pamona-Indonesia Dictionary, See Vol. 1 of the journal).
