Abstract

Many scholars have alarmed the rise of new extreme nationalism in many countries which is actively  promoted by some important national and international leaders. This paper examines the discourses of nationalism in popular culture and compares them with the nationalism ideas as promoted by those political leaders. Assuming that popular culture represents the bedrock belief of the society, this study has investigated the ideology of nationalism in 10 American and 10 Indonesian films applying the discourse historical approach from Ruth Wodak and Martin Reisigl. This study has identified nine features of nationalism in American films, i.e. us against them, saving life of Americans versus taking life of enemies,  individual versus institutional hero, hero as common people, anti war narratives, individual versus national interest, absence of governmental supports, white as the dominant, and superpower. While six main features of nationalism in Indonesian films are against poverty, against foreign power, against corruption, sacrifice and service for the nation, imagination as a nation, and developing the nation. This study concludes that the discourse of nationalism in American and Indonesian films do not in line with the nationalism ideas as proposed by the politicians or the government. While the politicians are campaigning new hostile nationalism, popular cultures are promoting nationalism with individual freedom and equality, striving for prosperity, and fighting poverty.Keywords: Discourse-Historical Approach; nationalism; new nationalism; popular culture; American film;   Indonesian film.

This paper explores the discourse in Telegram during the Iran’s 2017 election period. Recently, Telegram has become the most popular social media in Iran, playing a significant role in recent social and political events. This paper examines the highest-ranking posts to provide a better understanding of Telegram posts’ characteristics, dynamics, and potentials for producing the new discourses or reinforcing the existing ones. The materials of this study were gathered from the 620 most-viewed posts during the election period. The data were analyzed mainly with quantitative content analysis and completed with ethnographic content analysis. This study finds that counter discourses are not shaped in Telegram and the most viewed posts mainly reproduce and reinforce the dominant discourses. This finding also clarifies how the content circulation is affected by the national political events, such as the election.  Keywords: Telegram, Iran, presidential election, content analysis, discourse analysis.

Abstract

Islamic centers emerged when Muslims in the West had difficulties to build a mosque. As a majority, Indonesian Muslim communities do not need to adopt the concept of Western Islamic Center.  Nevertheless, establishing Islamic Center is quite popular among Indonesian Muslims. This paper argues that the establishment of Islamic Center is a practice of post-Islamism in Indonesia, in which Islam is interpreted in a specific way that juxtaposes religiosity and leisure, mixes between ‘the sacred’ and ‘the profane’. Taking the Mataram Islamic Center as a case study, this study explores how discourse of the Islamic Center shapes its establishment. Applying critical discourse analysis, this study takes several units of analysis, i.e. the mediation practices of the center and the visiting practices of the visitors. This study finds that there are two prominent discourses, namely the center as a religious space and the center as a tourist space, both of which do not defeat each other. Keywords: Islamic center, critical discourse analysis, post-Islamism, space mediation.
