Abstract

Leiden University Libraries houses the greatest collection of Panji manuscripts in the world. This became evident while preparing the successful nomination of Panji tales manuscripts for UNESCO’s Memory of the World Programme. This article begins with observations on Panji tales in general. They originated in East Java and have subsequently spread to other areas in Southeast Asia. This is followed by a description of the collection’s composition and its history. The collection exists of over 260 manuscripts in eight languages, the majority of manuscripts written on palm leaf or paper. I have described four manuscripts in detail paying special attention to their provenance and history. Originating from four locations, written in four languages in three different scripts, they can be considered representative of the collection. A complete listing of all manuscripts is given in the appendix.

Abstract

Tulisan ini bertujuan mengungkap kondisi perempuan Indonesia dalam kelompok etnis dan agama melalui metaanalisis atas pelbagai penelitian yang dituangkan dalam bentuk tesis dan disertasi. Penelitinya sebagian besar perempuan, baik warga negara Indonesia maupun warga negara asing. Kelompok etnis yang diteliti cukup banyak dan terdapat di pelbagai pulau. Hasilnya menunjukkan bahwa telah terjadi perubahan status dan peran perempuan dalam budaya dan agama yang berbeda ke arah yang menguntungkan perempuan dan laki-laki. Perubahan itu tampak khususnya dalam hubungan perempuan dengan agama, dengan perkawingan, dan dengan sektor usaha. Meskipun demikian, ketimpangan gender belum sepenuhnya hilang karena nilai-nilai budaya ataupun keagamaan yang hidup dalam pelbagai masyarakat itu tidak seluruhnya mendorong perubahan.

Abstract

Since the abrogation of Presidential Instruction Number 14/1967 which banned Chinese customs celebrations and religion in public, there has been a revival in Chinese festivals, language, art, media, culture and not in the least in the field of architecture and urban planning. With increasing interest in heritage and the support of the Indonesian government for heritage cities programmes, several promising initiatives involving Chinese architecture have been launched in cities both large and small. A brief glance of the history of Chinese Indonesian architecture is given, as well as some recent initiatives in selected cities plus a discussion of the importance of public space in accommodating Chinese festivals. Study of old maps and photographs prompts reflections on the characteristics and development of Pecinan during the colonial era and of their later history. The analysis in this article and examples of recent developments in the cities discussed can be used as an inspiration in the revitalization of Pecinan, thereby contributing in an attractive and livable urban environment.

Abstract

This article focuses on the psycholinguistic study of the syntactic aspects of Dutch-Indonesian interlanguage. The study is based on the interlanguage syntax observed in an oral test given to thirty Indonesian learners of Dutch as a second language, whose purpose is to test the processability theory of Pienemann (2005a, b, c, 2007). The results of the study provide evidence for the validity of Pienemann’s theory. Learners who have acquired sentences with the highest level of processing will also already have acquired sentences with a lower level of processing. The results from learners with a high level of Dutch proficiency verify the processability theory with more certainty than the results of learners with a lower proficiency. Learners tend to rely on meaning if they are not confident of their grammatical proficiency. Interlanguage is the result of the immediate need to encode in the mind concepts and ideas into the form of linguistic items, within a fraction of a millisecond, whilst the supporting means are limited, and whilst learners already have acquired a first language and possibly another language as well.

Hubungan intertekstualitas di antara novel-novel Mochtar Lubis

Abstract

Mochtar Lubis merupakan tokoh yang selalu gigih memperjuangkan kebenaran, keadilan, kebebasan berpendapat, dan nasib rakyat. Hal itu terlihat dari berbagai aktivitasnya sebagai sastrawan dan wartawan. Dalam setiap karya sastranya, Mochtar Lubis seolah-olah menyatakan dengan jelas pemikirannya. Dengan mengamati hubungan antarteks (intertekstualitas) di dalam karya-karya Mochtar Lubis, dapat dijalin benang merah mengenai persoalan yang selalu didengungkan oleh sastrawan itu dari satu karya ke karya yang lain, seperti ketakutan manusia dan dekadensi moral manusia.

Moens’written transmission of dalang lore

Abstract

Much of the storytelling in Java is the profession of the puppeteers (dalang; also spelled dhalang) who perform and direct shadow theatre plays (wayang). They improvise their stories in the context which their performance requires. Unless commissioned to do so by a patron, it is very unusual for a dalang to sit down and actually write out a story (lakon). In the early decades of the twentieth century in the area of Yogyakarta, a kind of storytelling mini-industry arose at the instigation of some western scholarly patrons and laymen interested in Javanese popular culture. One such patron was Ir. J.L. Moens. He encouraged dalangs to write down folk tales and, as they were dalangs, they clothed these in the wayang idiom. After Moens’ death in 1954, his unpublished collection of wayang stories was dispersed. In 1964 one part found its way into the Leiden University Library. The topics discussed are: how the Collectie Moens originated and what its purpose was; who its authors were; which tradition they acknowledged; and the relationship between the Collectie Moens and the court collections of Surakarta and Yogyakarta.
