Sexuality and power: towards an intimate history of the consolidation of Dutch rule in early 19th century Java

‘All Java knows this – how the Dutch allowed the kraton [of Yogyakarta] to be turned into a brothel and how [Prince] Dipanagara [1785-1855] has sworn to destroy it to the last stone’. (Nationaal Archief (The Hague), J.C. Baud private collection 177, Willem van Hogendorp, ‘Extract rapport betreffende de Residentie Kedoe’, 1827, 40, 143.)
