Abstract

Language and linguistics are vital in people’s daily conversation. However, because of some causes, there are some misunderstandings or pragmatic failures which may appear in communication among people. Many studies have looked into the pragmatic failures between native speakers and non-native speakers but this study investigates pragmatic failures in Netflix TV drama series “13 Reasons Why”. It aims to discover pragmatic failures that happened in the drama and their causes. To gather the data, the researchers watched the series and highlighted some events that contained pragmatic failures. Then, the researchers used three steps of data analysis: gather and organize, categorize, and analyze the findings. The findings showed that there were 25 pragmatic failures that happened in the drama. They were caused by five reasons, namely failure in understanding others’ intentions, failures in understanding others’ state, denials to the reality, trauma, and failures in understanding a situation. DOI: https://doi.org/10.24071/ijhs.2018.010212

Abstract

This study aims to describe the situation experienced by Kompas newspaper in the context of Indonesian politics from 1960 to 1980. This method of this research is a qualitative descriptive study describing an event with a historical approach. The method used is critical discourse analysis by reviewing the editorial from Kompas newspaper from 1960 to 1980. From the research result, it was found that Malari incident (fifteenth of January 1974) was the starting point of Kompas during the New Order era. Kompas is considered an idealist newspaper, Kompas which expresses peoples conscience and aspirations, boldly and critically exercises  social control. The pre-Malari Kompas is a free, independent and articulate newspaper. On the contrary, post-Malari Kompas is a less idealist newspaper, which tends to represent the interests of the rulers, government or even the state which never exercise social control critically, decisively, and courageously. The post-Malari Kompas is a newspaper that is not free or at least a newspaper that has a very limited independence. DOI: https://doi.org/10.24071/ijhs.2018.010207

Abstract

Diaspora literature studies have been extensively conducted in the world of literature. However, Indonesian diaspora literature has not been conducted widely in the Indonesian literature studies. To begin with, this study will examine the diaspora literature written by Indonesian immigrants in America in the 2010s. The first genre of Indonesian diaspora literature by Indonesian immigrants in America in the 2010s includes the history novel, Only a Girl: Menantang Phoenix (by Lian Gouw) which talks about the history of Chinese society in the Dutch-Indonesian era until the Indonesian independence and Candik Ala 1965 (by Tinuk R. Yampolsky) which tells the history of G/30/S/PKI. The second is the short story genre, which is Mantra Maia (by Sofie Dewayani) and the third are memory stories, which is This is America, Beibeh (by Dian Nugraheni) both of which raise the issue of Indonesian migrant communities in America. Diaspora problems are always related to the identity construction. The identity in Only a Girl: Menantang Phoenix is the migratory tendency and avoidance of racial conflicts inherent in Chinese people, who migrated to Indonesia, and who eventually migrated to America. The identity in Candik Ala 1965 is the Indonesian political migrant in America who position themselves as the victims of violence in the Suharto regime. The identity contained in the Mantra Maia short stories collection is a new world (America) that makes the migrants experience the psychological tension between success and failure of adaptation. The identity depicted in the memory stories of This is America, Beibeh is the identity of the Indonesian migrants who are able to adapt positively, by always comparing their new experiences with their old experiences in Indonesia.DOI: https://doi.org/10.24071/ijhs.2018.010201

Abstract

This study was inspired by the fact that the study in the field of children literature is rarely found in todays era, especially the study of poetry. Even though there are a lot of children poetries written by child poets nowadays, but still the research in children poetry is still low. Therefore, the researchers conducted this study with hope to enrich study in the field of children literature. Specifically, this study limited its objective into describing the language features of Indonesian children poetry. To pursue such objective, this study employed 50 titles of Indonesian children poetry written by child poets. The data of those poetries were collected by reading and writing (recording). Once the data were collected, they were analyzed in descriptive qualitative. The results show that the linguistic features of Indonesian children poetry written by child poets is realized on word shortening, meaning deviation, the use of foreign language words and Javanese language. DOI: https://doi.org/10.24071/ijhs.2018.010208

Abstract

In order to interact and work with diverse communities in this deeply interconnected world and to help solve such global issues as human rights abuse, ecological damage, economic poverty and extremism, we need to continually recognize and exchange values/perspectives across cultures and boundaries. Border-crossing is a complex but necessary web of interactions and dependencies among nations to create global peace and justice. Taiwan-Indonesia border crossing is insufficient, given that no formal diplomatic relation exists between the two countries excepting the informal such as trade and investment, people-to-people relations, education and popular culture industry. Taiwan and Indonesia similarly shared long history of nationalism, anti-communism, and democratization, but it remains under studied how these historical comparisons are reflected through literature. This paper will argue that transnational translation of literature can connect and define both nations better so as to enhance global connectedness. Thus, the crossing of the cultural boundaries by Taiwanese and Indonesian co-cultures through the translation of diverse literary works may give hope for future development of a mutual, emphatic understanding of each other’s cultures. DOI: https://doi.org/10.24071/ijhs.2018.010209
