“Mau ke mana? Dari mana?” Ini pertanyaan yang sering kita dengar dan lemparkan ke orang lain–tapi pernahkah kita menanyakannya ke kota kita?

Kota, melebihi manusia, acapkali menampakkan apa yang terkadang disebut sebagai “path dependency”, atau kebergantungan arah. Perubahan selalu ada, tapi arah atau lintasan masa depan dibatasi oleh sejarahnya, masa lalunya–entah sebagai momentum ataupun reaksi terhadapnya. Mereka yang mengidamkan masa depan mungkin dapat mengabaikan masa lalunya, tapi masa lalu tidak akan meninggalkan mereka.

Pengetahuan mengenai masa lalu dapat merendahkan hati sekaligus memberdayakan. Simbol-simbol masa lalu, seperti yang kita jumpai dalam lingkungan dan bangunan, berperan penting dalam pembentukan jati diri dan keterikatan. Bagaimana kita menemukan (ulang) dan belajar dari masa lalu? Apa itu pusaka hidup (living heritage)? Dapatkah kita hidup di masa lalu, sekarang, dan masa depan? Apa itu Surabaya sekarang?

Bingung ta? Wes, reneo.  Cangkruk mbek Howard Dick. Profesor bisnis & eknomi dari Universitas Melbourne dan Newcastle, penulis buku babon Surabaya City of Work, dan banyak buku-buku mantebh lainnya. Padat sejarah ekonomi dan kota, tapi gak mboseni blas. Hyuk, mari.

Mau ke mana? Dari mana?
Casual Talk with Prof. Howard Dick, author of Surabaya, City of Work
☞ Monday, 15 February 2016, 6.30 – 8.30 pm
C2O library & collabtive, Jl. Dr. Cipto 22, Surabaya

Cities, even more so than people, display what is sometimes referred to as ‘path dependency’. Always there is change, but the future direction or trajectory is constrained by the past, whether as momentum or as reaction. Those who long for the future may ignore the past, but the past will not ignore them. Knowledge of the past is both humbling and empowering. The symbols of the past, as in the heritage of the built environment, are important to identity and belonging. They do not have to be annihilated. But how do we best (re)discover and learn from the past? Can we live in past, present and future? What is living heritage? What is Surabaya today?

Howard Dick is a professorial fellow in the Faculty of Business & Economics at the University of Melbourne and also a conjoint professor in the Faculty of Business & Law at the University of Newcastle (NSW). His degrees are in Economics but much of his writing has been in Economic History and Urban Studies with the prime focus on Indonesia. He first visited Surabaya in 1972 and his extended association with the city gave rise to his book Surabaya, City of Work: A Socioeconomic History, 1900-2000 (Ohio 2002, NUS 2003), following upon Balanced Development: East Java in the New Order (OUP 1993 and in translation 1997). He has also written with others The Emergence of a National Economy: An Economic History of Indonesia, 1800-2000 (Allen & Unwin, 2002), Cities, Transport and Communications: The Integration of Southeast Asia since 1850 (Palgrave 2003) and The City in Southeast Asia: Patterns, Processes and Policy (NUS 2009).
