The reformasi of Ayu Utami; Attacking the monopoly of the great religions Steenbrink, Karel

Abstract

In eight novels, Ayu Utami has presented critical attacks on doctrines and practices of the major religions in Indonesia. The two books, that describe the spiritual struggle of the Catholic priest Saman (1998–2002), call for a religion that is more active in the political arena, but leaves sexual rules to the individual people. The novel Bilangan Fu (2008) condemns the monopoly of the great religions in favour of local and individual spirituality. This is developed in a series of novels of which two more have already appeared. A third cycle of three more or less autobiographic novels (2003–2013) sketch her personal quest from atheism towards a critical but positive spirituality condemning a clerical and monopolist trend in Catholicism. Utami’s criticism of the great religions is external (more players in the field should be recognised) and internal (religious leaders should have more modest claims towards their faithful and leave more space for personal choice).

Some features of phonology, morphophonemics, and morphology are offered, which seem to be useful for classifying Malay dialects on structural basis. Dialectal differences with Standard Malay are illustrated on minor samples of Johor and Kelantan dialects recorded during author’s stay in Malaysia several decades ago.

Abstract

This article examines factory outlet as a cultural phenomenon in Indonesia. It specifically focuses in the shift in FO meanings. Through observation, bibliographic study and critical critique, it is shown that FO has been perceived differently from a place to get "branded products" for the lower middle class in order to increase their social status to a shopping heaven for the upper class

Abstract

It is cross-linguistically defined that adjective is a word category that typically denotes quality and attributes. This category basically falls into semantic properties denoting age, dimension, values, and colours. They also indicate human propensities, physical properties, and speed. Syntactically, adjective typically functions as noun modifiers. However, many adjectives also share features with verbs and/or nouns. This makes adjectives not easy to define. Therefore, morphological and syntactic accounts are required, in addition to semantics, to define the prototypical characteristics of adjectives. This paper has shown that majority of lexemes denoting adjectival properties in Dhao share features with verbs. Although the prefix pa- can be attached to verbs and adjectives to generate causative meaning, adjectives are confined only to the second verb in serial verb construction, instead of being the predicate heads. Further, only four adjectives can function as noun modifiers in their bare forms. These latter adjectives are considered as pure or simple adjectives, while the other nine qualifying for adjectives as “recategorized” adjectives.

Abstract

1998 was the year of Mandarin teaching resurrection in Indonesia after 30 years prohibited. Since then, many schools begin to teach Mandarin as an extracurricular subject. In the last two years it becomes an intracurricular subject. Since there was no Chinese school for almost 30 years, consequently there was no publication on Mandarin student’s book, no Mandarin teachers. Nowadays, suddenly Mandarin teachers, student’s book was highly needed. Many schools use Singapore/Taiwan’s book. This rises problems, because Singapore/Taiwan’s students language circumstance is different from Indonesian students. The result is far from what we expected. This article proposed some aids based on the need of Indonesian’s student. Department of Education should set up a team consisting of Indonesian experts in Mandarin language teaching and Chinese linguistic to compile syllabus, student’s book. It should base on Indonesian Language Politics and the need of Indonesian’s student which differ from Chinese schools 30 years ago.
Thinking in Islands; The Portuguese perception of the Indonesian archipelago and particularly of Sunda in early texts and charts Langguth, Svann

Abstract

This article discusses various early sources on the Indonesian archipelago. It starts with the status of knowledge before the first voyage of the Portuguese to the Moluccas from accounts of travellers to insular Southeast Asia in the Middle Ages and the picture on world maps European cartographers produced. Comparing that view with text sources and the resulting geographic material of the first expeditions by the Portuguese provides an insight into contemporary mechanisms of knowledge transfer. Certain effects can be traced and are repeated on different levels of access to the original facts mainly because most maps were drawn up in Europe but based on the geographic description provided by text accounts. An abundance and multiplication of failures and mistakes is evident and is partly related to the scarcity of sources and due to reproduction techniques.

Abstract

Urak Lawoi’ yang berarti ‘orang laut’ adalah nama suku nelayan pengembaralaut yang tersebar di Pulau Phuket (Thailand) dan Kepulauan Adang disebelah selatannya. Bahasa mereka yang juga dikenal dengan nama UrakLawoi’ merupakan sebuah varietas Melayu yang khas. Dari pemeriannyayang ada tampaklah bahwa bahasa itu menyimpang dari varietas Melayudi daratan Thailand Selatan dan di semenanjung Malaysia. Dalam artikel inidirekonstruksikan perubahan bunyi dalam urutannya yang diakronis, yangtelah memberikan wujud khas pada kata-kata leksikal Urak Lawoi’ itu. Yangmenonjol dalam hal itu adalah dua perubahan bunyi yang mengingatkan bahasabahasadi Kalimantan Barat dan Serawak, yaitu hilangnya letupan bersuarasetelah konsonan nasal di dalam morfem (*-mb- > -m-, dan seterusnya), danpenggantian nasal pada akhir kata oleh konsonan tak bersuara yang homorgan(*-m > -p, dan seterusnya).

Abstract

In the daily life of the Indonesian people, a penghulu plays a role in accordance with the way the word is understood by the community in which he lives. In West Sumatra, a penghulu is the head of the nagari. In Riau, he has a status equal to that of a head of a village. In Java, he has an authority in all administrative matters of religion. This paper discusses the meaning of penghulu as depicted in old manuscripts written by the natives. Based on a research on these native manuscripts, it can be concluded that a penghulu plays the roles of both a bureaucrat and a Muslim leader.
Indonesian Chinese in the Netherlands and the legacies of violence in colonial and post-colonial Indonesia Meer, Alexander van der; Eickhoff, Martijn

Abstract

After Indonesian independence in 1945, thousands of Indonesian Chinese repatriated to the Netherlands, the former colonizer. As opposed to other repatriates from Indonesia, who organized themselves into pressure groups and fought for a place in the national memory culture, the Indonesian Chinese in the Netherlands only formed strict socio-cultural associations and have generally stayed clear of identity politics. Usually, this divergence is attributed to the smooth integration and socio-economic success of the latter group, as well as to Chinese values, such as conflict avoidance.This article adds to this explanation by positing that this phenomenon has also been induced by the legacy of anti-Chinese violence in colonial and post-colonial Indonesia: respectively, Dutch discomfort to acknowledge the violent and discriminatory elements of its own colonial history, as well as a fear of offending the Indonesian government. Consequently, many Indonesian Chinese in the Netherlands have engaged in some form of public self-silencing.
