Abstract

This research examines how women read the popular press. The main question of this research is to what extent the popular press has relevance and functional values for women readers? The study was conducted on the readers of two popular newspapers in Indonesia, Merapi in Yogyakarta and Pos Kota in Jakarta. Through in-depth interviews, the study found that women have a pleasure of reading popular press because of its relevance and functionality. Although most of the news tells about crime and violence, those themes are relevant and functional for their daily life. The informants read almost all the criminal news. According to them, the criminal news provide information about what is happening in their environment so that they can always be careful, mainly related to the supervision of their children. In contrast, women do not particularly like political news because it is irrelevant to their life. In this case, political news is considered as male domain. The cultural factors also provide relevance for women readers, especially Merapi. The women who read Merapi very enjoy reading mystery stories, Jagad Lelembut, which is closely related to their local culture contexts.Keywords: popular press; women readers; Pos Kota; Merapi; relevance; functionality.

Abstract

This aim of the study is to describe the role of local televisions in constructing local identities. This study was conducted with qualitative approach, examining two programs in two local televisions in Pekanbaru, Riau, Indonesia, namely Belacan Program of Riau Television (RTV) and Online Channel Program of Riau Channel Television (RCTV). This research found that local televisions have important roles in constructing local identities and maintaining local cultures. RTV and RCTV have optimized various ways of constructing local cultures, which simultaneously draws closer relations to their audiences, such as focusing on the Malay culture as a dominant culture in Riau, exploring tourist attractions and new places sursounding the city, delivering the program with local language, presenting traditional clothes worn by the host, involving local comminities in the production and creative processes of the program, innovating the program with the interactive music segment, discussing folk songs, and inviting local speakers. These programs have shown the resistance to the dominance of ‘Jakarta’ and global culture. The use of local language acts as symbolic signs, namely representing the local identities.Keywords: local television; local identity; local culture; creative processes.
