Abstract

The discourse of Indonesian Chinese Muslim identity has been shaped through long historical processes. Since the colonialism era to the Reform Order, this discourse has changed due to the economic and political transformation, which in turn give an impact to the structure of the identity itself. The Reform Era is one of social ruptures in Indonesia that become interesting historical context to examine how the discourse of Indonesian Chinese Muslim has been developed. This study has examined the notions of identity through a critical discourse analysis model as proposed by Norman Fairclough, which emphasizes both sociocultural practice of discourse and micro level of discourse. Taking Komunitas - Cheng Hoo magazine as a case study, this study aims to outline the discourse on Chinese Muslim identity in Indonesia in the post-New Order context. As one of the results of political reform in Indonesia which has opened up the opportunity for the Chinese communities to express their identity, this magazine emphasizes various positive representations of Chinese communities and their cultures. However, such positive representations also entail dynamic tensions of Chinese identities, i.e., tension between ‘Chinese’ and ‘Tionghoa’ terms, between nationalism and discrimination issues, and tension of being apolitical or political subject. This study also finds that the representation of Chinese Muslim is not singular, but plural, fluid and constantly in contestation with the others. Most importantly, Chinese Muslims are represented as inclusive-rational groups and as true nationalist people. Keywords: critical discourse analysis, Indonesian Chinese Muslim, identity, Reform Order.

Abstract

Smartphone has played a vital role in shaping our modern daily life, including gratifying our needs in entertainment, information search, and social networking. Nowadays, mobile instant messaging (MIM) has been adopted as a main communication tool not only by the younger generations, but also by the older groups. However, most studies have focused on how the young users communicate with their peers, while the middle-aged group has not received any proper attention from researchers. This study aims to examine middle-aged adults’ (40 to 60 years old) use of MIM as a complementing tool of the traditional communication forms to sustain relational involvements with their friends and family members. Applying a snowballing online survey method, this study has asked a group of students of a communication research class of a mid-size private university in Hong Kong to deliver the online questionnaire to their parents, also asked their parents to send the questionnaire to their middle-aged friends who have children. This study finds two major types of MIM functions being used: visual-based and audio-based. These functions are significantly related to three newly found relational gratifications: friendship maintenance, family relations maintenance, and troubleshooting. This study expands the understanding of specific MIM communication patterns among the respondents, also explores the age and gender differences in MIM communication. Keywords: Mobile instant messaging, relational maintenance gratifications, family relations, middle-aged adults.

Abstract

Tank-top has recently become a popular costume in the Indonesian music video. As a theoretical note, this paper shows that music video has been analyzed with two different but interrelated approaches, i.e. contextual and textual analysis. The contextual analysis emphasizes the broader political economy surrounding the production, distribution and consumption of the music video. The textual analysis, which could be conducted in three types of analysis, i.e. narrative, content, and semiotics, focuses on the representation practices in the music video. This study also shows that tank-top, an underwear moved out into outerwear, is a kind of femininity technique, characterized by the appearance and projection of the female body. The use of tank-top in music video shows the ‘new order for intimacy’ through the ‘ritualization of nudity and sexuality’. This phenomenon also examples the way of mythologizing modern women, through which the representation of modern women have become a myth. However, this very construction of modern women is inseparable from the ideological discourses and power relations that naturalize these representational practices. Keywords: Indonesian music video, tank-top, representation, modern women, myth, ideology.
