The second part of the book commences with Chapter Six. It analyses the connections Indonesian Muslims make between preaching styles and subjectivities, and the norms of citizen subjectivity that shape these connections. Chapter Six explores a progressive critique of preaching routines, describing a competition in which contestants write about the Qur’an. This was specifically conceived by a Bandung activist concerned about the negative effects of listening on Indonesia’s democratic future. Rationales for the project reveal authoritative conceptions of how Islam should properly be mediated.
