Abstract

Teaching communication theory in Indonesia and another non-Western countries generally deals with two challenges, namely Western perspective biases and negative perception of students who used to look at the course as complicated and boring. The paper offers teaching strategy for the communication theory course emphasizing contextualization as the core learning message, culturally responsive as the teaching approach, and student centred as the learning method. Students learn to relate the learning process with their everyday experience, so that they could develop meaning or function of the learning process. It would increase students’ motivation, involvement, and achievement. It would also be an important point to contextualize communication theory with empirical context, as contextualization is an important process of de-westernization of communication theories. Thus, the communication theory teaching is an initial step to de-westernize communication theory, which has a simple role: to criticize the relevance of established communication theories with local context.Keywords: communication theory teaching; de-westernization; contextualization; culturally responsive teaching; student centred learning; communication theory criticism.

Abstract

This paper explores the identity of Malay-Muslim women based on the religious foundation of Islam, feminism and gender in contemporary Malaysian cinema. The number of films produced in the contemporary era between the year of 2000 to the present have portrayed Muslim women characters of fervent spirit and intelligence, possess good values, authoritative, mentally resilient, and independent. Socio-cultural and political changes in Malaysia have encouraged major improvement towards Malay-Muslim women as representational subjects in contemporary Malaysian films. The Malaysian film industry has witnessed an increasing number of films with Islamic content especially towards the end of 1990s. The trend has become popular among Malaysian producers and been well received by the local audience. This scenario indicates a significant relationship between Muslim women and the Islamic related-issue, making it a substantial subject to be examined not only in a social-political context, but also in the cinema studies context. This paper will critically explore the representation of Malay-Muslim women in contemporary Malaysian cinema. The discussion will also consider how their representation intertwined with the religion and customs aspects which subsequently influence a trend in the representation of Malay-Muslim women in contemporary Malaysian cinema.Keywords: Malay-Muslim women representation; Islamic feminism; contemporary Malaysian cinema.

How is this dominant ideology also shape the process of producing text? How does the ideology relate to the socio-cultural history of the Indonesian student press?
