Abstract

ABSTRACT: After being left by Girilaya in 1662, the situation of Cirebon was not condusive. His generation, the Prince of Wangsakerta, was in the difficult situation because he was the prisoner of Trunojoyo in Kediri. Then, he asked for help to Sultan Ageng Tirtayasa of Banten to freed and protect him. Afterward, Sultan Ageng Tirtayasa inaugurated the Princes of Cirebon, namely: Syamsuddin Martawijaya as “Sultan Sepuh” or Old Sultan; Badrudin Kartawijaya as “Sultan Anom” or Young Sultan; and Pangeran Wangsakerta as “Panembahan” or Prime Minister of Carbon. After being together in Cirebon, there was quarrel though there was no civil war among them. The internal conflict of the Cirebon palace family gave chance to outside, which was VOC (Verenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie or Dutch East India Company) to do intervention. Finally, the VOC bound Sultans of Cirebon by variety of contracts (engagement) under the cloak to make a peace either to get commercial monopoly. Since 1681, the authority of Cirebon Sultans had experienced degeneration as the impact of change had brought Dutch colonialism. Althought, the title of Sultan was still carried, the authority had been disappeared. Every decision considered important things, including the change of Sultan had to get agreement from Governor-General in Batavia or Jakarta now. At 1809, H.W. Daendels organized government reorganization by issuing ”Reglement van Bestuur voor de Cheribonsche Landen” that ended the political authority of Cirebon Sultans.

Abstract

ABSTRACT: Civilized society is those who appreciate and maintain their heritage which is, then, manifested into a set of local wisdom. Local wisdom is an activity containing way of life and knowledge undertaken by local people to answer problems in fulfilling their necessity. The socio-cultural condition of Sundanese people at the time “Amanat Galunggung” (Message of Galunggung) was produced, which include religious, socio-economic, and cultural conditions, is precisely captured by the text. Through its discursive strategies, the text presents that the religious life of Sundanese people at that time is mostly influenced by Hinduism. In economic side, people of Sunda generally work in farming field. Meanwhile, the cultural condition indicates the pluralistic life of Sundanese community. The present research’s effort is to examine the representation of Sundanese local wisdom in an old text entitled “Amanat Galunggung” which was written in 16th century. Framed generally by CDA (Critical Discourse Analysis) theory and method, and particularly DHA (Discourse Historical Approach), the examination is focused on observing the five discursive strategies in micro-analysis under DHA, which includes strategies of nomination, predication, argumentation, perspectivation, and mitigation. The discussion also highlights the socio-cultural background of Sundanese people in that period to see its influence on the content of the text itself. Thus, the integration of two disciplinaries of historical study and linguistics is well-achieved.

Abstract

ABSTRACT: This paper is a study of the potential of “wayang” (puppet show) in Sundanese culture of Priangan subcultures, especially in the art of dance. Initially, the word “wayang” was interpreted to refer to dolls made of wood which are played by a puppeteer in a puppetry art show or to appoint the plot which is delivered by the puppeteer in a puppetry art show, and also can be directly identified with the performance of puppetry art of “wayang golek” (wooden puppet show). Furthermore, the potential of “wayang” has a strong influence or contribution to some aspects of life with some kinds of belief and also of art, including the growth of “wayang” in Sundanese dance of Priangan style. Because “wayang” implicitly contains religious meaning in the contents of the plot, so “wayang” in Sundanese dance of Priangan style cannot be separated from the mission or moral value towards the guidance of life. The origin of “wayang wong” (men/women puppet show) of Priangan was revealed as a form of dance drama show with the dialogue delivering puppet stories, either completely or partially, in which the scenes are composed in phases and there are always battles or conflicts between the evil characters and the eradicators of the evil. In addition, it was also revealed the richness of the performance forms that only describes a single moment of the puppet story, called a free dance, in the forms of single dance, dance in pairs, and dance in groups or mass dance.

Abstract

ABSTRACT: During 15 centuries, Islam has always met with many cultures, even Moslems who come from different ethnic and social backgrounds have made Islam a multicultural reality. Therefore, the paradigm of humanity science will be always actual to understand the reality of Islamic society in the context of the integration amongs historical religious and cultural perspectives. The three perspectives can become on epistemology of "multicultural Islam". Its methodology can be developed into a variety of Islamic objects. In this paper, the epistemology will be more focused on history and culture. Both are explored in a religious context of Islam. The use of this perspective is based on the development of Islam in Indonesia and Sufism on local communities in particular. As an outline of the development, as follow: firstly, the development of Islam always adapts to the local culture; secondly, ongoing local Islamic construct and it is also changing due to the influence of Western culture and the reform in the Islamic world; and thirdly, continuing encounters of contemporary Islamic diversity, due to the development of modern multiculturalism. In addition, the integration of perspectives in explaining Islam can produce knowledge of "historical-multicultural", that is Islam in reality, difference, and diversity that occurs and is recognized by the Moslem communities within a certain time. Furthermore, the knowledges based on "historical-multicultural" can also be used as a discourse for solving human problems that always arise in the present and future days.

Abstract

ABSTRACT: To enter into the religious pluralism of thought, in which the Muslims need to do, is to reinterpret the teachings of Islam, so that the Muslims do not happen with the authoritarian attitudes that consider the most of uncorrect in understanding of Islam. The word of plural and pluralism means diversity and plurality. Thus, the notion of pluralism can be defined as an ideology that recognizes diversity in its various aspects, for example in understanding of religion, culture, and geography. This study tries to elaborate the controversy of the liberal-Islamic thought about pluralism of religions in Indonesia. By using the qualitative methods, especially the historical approach with descriptive analysis, this study concerns on the controversy of Islamic liberal thought in one hand; and, in other hand, its relevances to religious pluralism in Indonesian’s social and political context. The findings show that pluralism of religions by liberal Islamic group that all religions with its variations and levels of different depths are the same as the road of religious. This opinion has caused controversy, because there is criticism and there were strongly rejected the idea of pluralism of the liberal Islam. As K.H. Atiyan Ali M. Da’i (2002) and MUI (Indonesian Ulema Council) issued a “fatwa” that pluralism is unlawful, because it has a tendency considers all religions that difference could be reduced or avoided, if the same understanding of pluralism. KEY WORDS: Controversial Issues; Liberal Islamic Thought; Understanding of Islam; Pluralism of Religions; Indonesian Islam.   About the Authors: Samsudin, M.Ag. is a Postgraduate Student of UNPAD (Padjadjaran University) Bandung and a Lecturer at the Faculty of Adab and Humanities UIN SGD (State Islamic University, Sunan Gunung Djati) Bandung, West Java, Indonesia.

Abstract

ABSTRACT: The development of Islam in Batavia (Jakarta now) is not only the struggle of scholars’ Haji (one who has made the pilgrimage to Mecca) of Batavia, but also the merit of scholars of Jakarta coming from Arab-Hadramaut. The study is aimed at identifying the Islamization process in Batavia and analysing the roles of “Habaib” in the Islamization process in the 17thcentury. The method employed in the study was historical method by using four steps of main activities, i.e heuristic as a step to collect historical data; criticism as an activity to criticize the data; interpretation as a step to provide elucidation on data; and historiography as a phase of history writing. The result shows that the process of Islamization in Batavia was closely related to the beginning of Batavia conquering by Fatahillah or Fadhillah Khan in 1527 AD (Anno Domini). However, some writings have early criticized the theory stating that the growth of Islamization process in Batavia would be more appropriate if linked to Muslim sholars, such as Syekh Quro (Karawang), Datuk Ibrahim (Condet), Datu Biru (Jatinegara), Dato Tonggara (Cililitan), Mak Datu Tanjung Kait (Tangerang), and Kumpi Datu (Depok). In addition, in the 17thcentury, the growth of Islamization process in Batavia increased since “Habaib” from Arab-Hadramaut had come to Batavia. Their existences were proved by the historical facts found in Batavia, they are site of Kampung Bandan and site of Kampung Luar Batang.KEY WORDS: Habaib of Batavia; Process of Islamization; History of Muslims; Speech; Historical Sites.  About the Authors: Agus Permana and Mawardi are the Lecturers at the Faculty of Adab and Humanities UIN SGD (State Islamic University, Sunan Gunung Djati) Bandung, Jalan A.H.

Abstract

ABSTRACT: The polemic of literary legitimation within Indonesian literature in the era of Reformation is triggered by Saut Situmorang (2007)’s essay on “Politik Kanonisasi Sastra” (Politic of Literary Canonisation). The essay has triggered a debate within the field of Indonesian literature, and has received considerable responses from literary critics and the man/woman of letters. This paper questions the legitimacies of Ayu Utami’s novel of “Saman” and of Denny Januar Ali’s a prose-poetry of “Atas Nama Cinta” (In the Name of Love). The ongoing debate within Indonesian literature is discussed in the discourse of the canonisation of literature and its relation to theory of hegemony and counter-hegemony. However, some man/woman of letters were worried about Hans-Georg Gadamer (1990)’s thesis on the creation of presupposition and perception built on the exposition of historical situatedness. This paper also identifies the existence of oligarchic power relations between the literary agents in the legitimation of Indonesian literary works’ quality. There is bias in the mentioned legitimation and the literary community has collusioned to legitimize this literary work. Proper to mention here is the rivalry between KUK (Komunitas Utan Kayu or Utan Kayu Community) and BP (Boemi Poetera or Indigenous). The former is led by Goenawan Mohamad and the later is under the influence of Saut Situmorang.KEY WORDS: Literary Canonisation; Hegemony; Counter-Hegemony; Literary Legitimacy; Historical Situatedness.About the Author: Dr. Suyitno is a Lecturer at the Study Program of Indonesian Language and Literature Education, Department of Language and Arts Education FKIP UNS (Faculty of Education and Teacher Training, State University of Surakarta), Jalan Ir.

Abstract

ABSTRACT: Since many years ago, Bangka’s tin had been recognized as one of prior commodities having been known by people outside Nusantara (Indonesian archipelago). Due to its high economic value, this natural resource had invited the other huge power from outside this island, intending to have control over it. In the 19th century, the map of political power in this island changed, along with the strengthening of colonial influence. Their political authority was connected to the maintaining of tin trenches. People were asked to obey the colonial provisions, as undergone by Chinese mining laborers. The difficulty suffered by the people and Bangka Chinese laborers had caused Depati Amir to struggle to resist against the imbalance. The battle was then continued by Depati Amir who tried to fight the colonial power in Bangka. One of the sources of Dutch power was their ability in developing administrative communication. Correspondences and report arrangement became the references to make the next fighting scheme. Later these reports were then used to be the primary references to reveal the activities of Depati Amir, Chinese laborers, and Dutch government in Bangka. This paper is based on the findings of a research some time ago, discussing about the struggle of Depati Amir and Chinese people againts Dutch colonial government in the mid of 19th century. The findings showed that “the archive tells the story”, that is by showing the contents of archives as a material to understand the story of Depati Amir and his cooperation with Chinese people in overthrowing the wall of Dutch colonialism.  KEY WORDS: Depati Amir; Chinese People; Dutch Colonialism; Resistance; Archive Tells the Story.About the Author: Prof. Dr. M.
