We aim to conduct a computational analysis of Zelenskyy's English, Russian, and Ukrainian speeches, exploring the linguistic patterns and code-switching employed in his discourse. The study period encompasses Russia’s build-up to and full-scale invasion of Ukraine from May 2019 to May 30, 2023. This time frame is crucial as it captures the dynamic development of the crisis and the expansion of Zelenskyy's presidency, providing a unique context for analyzing his public diplomacy efforts. By utilizing Linguistic Inquiry …


Animal Motifs On Rock Art In Papua And West Papua, R. Cecep Eka Permana, Zubair Mas'ud 2023 Faculty of Humanities, Universitas Indonesia

Animal Motifs On Rock Art In Papua And West Papua, R. Cecep Eka Permana, Zubair Mas'ud

Wacana, Journal of the Humanities of Indonesia

Most of the rock art in Indonesia is found at prehistoric sites, specifically caves or cliffs in South Sulawesi, Southeast Sulawesi, East Kalimantan, Maluku, Papua, and West Papua. Most rock art with animal motifs is mainly located in Papua and West Papua. Therefore, the data in this paper are mostly based on the results of research conducted during the last ten years at rock art sites in Papua Province (with hinterland and mountainous characteristics) and in West Papua Province (with coastal and archipelagic characteristics). An analysis of these animal motifs has demonstrated that lizard and fish motifs dominate rock art …

Mulyawan Karim (2021), "Di Rumah Panjang; Pergulatan Hidup Dan Cinta Orang Dayak Iban", Dave Lumenta

Wacana, Journal of the Humanities of Indonesia

This is a book review of Di Rumah Panjang: Pergulatan Hidup dan Cinta Orang Dayak Iban authored by journalist-anthropologist Mulyawan Karim. This is a popularly-written ethnographic account on the Iban of West Kalimantan based on the author's travels in 1993/94 and 2018. As the body of literature on the Iban on the Indonesian side is generally small, this monograph is the first of its kind written in Indonesian. What Mulyawan Karim has achieved in thematically positioning his book is in exploring personal life struggles and even love stories, two important themes of everyday life that are arguably absent from the …

"Leaderless" Resistance? An Anatomy Of Female Leadership In Orang Asli Grassroots Movements, Ruhana binti Padzil, Vilashini Somiah 2023 University of Malaya

"Leaderless" Resistance? An Anatomy Of Female Leadership In Orang Asli Grassroots Movements, Ruhana Binti Padzil, Vilashini Somiah

Wacana, Journal of the Humanities of Indonesia

This article unpacks community-level female leadership among Malaysia’s indigenous Orang Asli community. The power dynamics of this community’s relationship with state institutions have been uneven. Critics accuse the authorities of infantilizing the community, through gendered and patriarchal behaviour (for example, male government officers only interact with male heads of communities). Based on the fieldwork including seven interviews with female and male Orang Asli grassroots leaders of an independent, pro-indigenous movement – one which is apparently “leaderless” in terms of its organizational structure – we show how they challenge the abovementioned attitudes through neo-empowerment and agentic efforts, through collective narratives of …


"Bale Desa"; Preservation Of Cultural Values And Women’S Leadership In Tengger, East Java, Indonesia, Sony Sukmawan, Elvin Nuril Firdaus, Lestari Setyowati 2023 Faculty of Cultural Studies, Universitas Brawijaya, Malang

"Bale Desa"; Preservation Of Cultural Values And Women’S Leadership In Tengger, East Java, Indonesia, Sony Sukmawan, Elvin Nuril Firdaus, Lestari Setyowati

Wacana, Journal of the Humanities of Indonesia

Indonesian bale desa (village halls) are traditionally seen as public service centres for rural communities. For the people living in Tengger, East Java, Indonesia, village halls play a dual role as public service centres and venues where villagers observe and preserve age-old customs in which women’s leadership is of paramount importance. This study aims to identify the local values related to women’s hard work and adroitness in maintaining the continuity of customs and tradition, and analyse the way Tengger women exercise their leadership in village halls and the contributions they make to the preservation of local culture. This research uses …


"Mama Lima"; The Significance Of Women’S Role In Protecting Nature, Nurture, And Culture In Banda Islands, Muhammad Farid, Juul Sadée 2023 Universitas Islam Internasional (UII-Dalwa), East Java and Universitas Banda Naira, Maluku

"Mama Lima"; The Significance Of Women’S Role In Protecting Nature, Nurture, And Culture In Banda Islands, Muhammad Farid, Juul Sadée

Wacana, Journal of the Humanities of Indonesia

The historiography of Banda has paid little attention to the existence of women. Stories involving women are mainly about romance, family, and suffering. In reality, the existence of “Mama Lima” (groups of five women) is very strong in the Banda tradition (adat). They are the carriers of knowledge and tradition, a consequence of matriarchy. They determine the content and implementation of adat ceremonies like Buka kampong, forming the set of social norms and customary law of the community. Mama Lima groups are a living example of women throughout the ages who have played a significant …


Indonesia’S Women; Diversity And Dynamics, Anke Niehof 2023 Wageningen University, The Netherlands

Indonesia’S Women; Diversity And Dynamics, Anke Niehof

Wacana, Journal of the Humanities of Indonesia

The study of Indonesian women inevitably involves methodological questions, a prime one being whether Indonesian women as a category form a meaningful object of study. In edited volumes on Indonesian women, the contributions usually form a mosaic of different kinds of Indonesian women, defined by variables such as ethnicity, class, residence, or historical time. This raises questions about diversity and difference and the applicability of specific findings to Indonesian women in general. Taking as a point of departure that it is useful to treat Indonesian women’s studies as one field of study, I explore these issues in relation to women’s …

Depiction Restoring Women’S Power Through Eatery Names, Ajar Pradika Ananta Tur, Arini Sabrina, Azelin Mohamed Noor, Yashinta Farahsani, Ida Puspita, Muhammad Hafiz Kurniawan

Wacana, Journal of the Humanities of Indonesia

Empowering women entails bolstering their mentality and state of mind, as patriarchy is founded not only on sexuality. Addressing a married woman with the name of her husband or first son is claimed to be a sign of respect. Woman’s public inclusion is also still considered undervalued, which is shown in the way they name eateries. This study, which unfolds eatery names in Yogyakarta Municipality in Indonesia and Malacca in Malaysia, two places with identical historical backgrounds, analysed women’s efforts to increase their bargaining position in society through the naming of their eateries. Although two eateries do place women in …


The Battle Of Female Chefs In Facing Dominant Social Norms, Intan Yusan Septiani, Mia Siscawati 2023 Kompas Gramedia Group

The Battle Of Female Chefs In Facing Dominant Social Norms, Intan Yusan Septiani, Mia Siscawati

Wacana, Journal of the Humanities of Indonesia

Many traditions in the world require women to master cooking at an early age. Cooking in a traditional kitchen (domestic area) – always attached to women – is often interpreted as an obligation and a form of women’s service to their families, spouses, children, and other people in their lives. Hence, cooking in the domestic space is an undefined job. When these activities shift to a public space, it becomes a profession, with a professional work area, and the workers are predicated professional chefs. Ironically, the professional kitchen, which people assume, could easily be run by women, is controlled and …


Minangkabau Mothers And Daughters In Contemporary "Rantau" Society; Regaining Power With Modified Matrilineal Principles And Patriarchal "Rantau" Norms, Mina Elfira 2023 Departemen Susastra, Fakultas Ilmu Pengetahuan Budaya, Universitas Indonesia, Depok 16424, Indonesia

Minangkabau Mothers And Daughters In Contemporary "Rantau" Society; Regaining Power With Modified Matrilineal Principles And Patriarchal "Rantau" Norms, Mina Elfira

Wacana, Journal of the Humanities of Indonesia

The action of pai marantau (emigrating) is usually associated with the Minangkabau, the world’s largest matrilineal society, and one of the most fervently Islamic societies in Indonesia – the country with the largest Muslim population in the world. Once, it was mainly men who migrated, but more recently, women have also been emigrating. One consequence of emigrating from the matrilineal heartland in West Sumatra is that women lose some of the privileges conferred by the matrilineal adat, especially those pertaining to inheritance. Using qualitative fieldwork methods and Kandiyoti’s theory of the patriarchal bargain (1988), this paper explores how these …

Reclaiming Domestic Space; Decolonial Feminism And Women’S Sovereignty In Southeast Asia And Beyond Within The Context Of Artistic Practice, Alia Swastika 2023 Biennale Jogja Foundation

Reclaiming Domestic Space; Decolonial Feminism And Women’S Sovereignty In Southeast Asia And Beyond Within The Context Of Artistic Practice, Alia Swastika

Wacana, Journal of the Humanities of Indonesia

Contemporary art practices have developed expansively over the global stage with the development of big international exhibitions, including those held in museums or biennales and festivals. In the last decade, the global art world has witnessed the contestation of powers among institutions and art practitioners generated by massive movements such as Occupy Movements, Arab Springs, Black Lives Matter, which has shifted the positionalities of artists and arts in the Global South. This shift also encourages discussions on decoloniality in the art system and art history, including how to centralize the issue of gender equality. Southeast Asian women artists have expanded …


Woman Becoming… Gender Possibilities In Selected Speculative Short Stories Of Intan Paramaditha And Isabel Yap, Grace V.S. Chin 2023 Universiti Sains Malaysia

Woman Becoming… Gender Possibilities In Selected Speculative Short Stories Of Intan Paramaditha And Isabel Yap, Grace V.S. Chin

Wacana, Journal of the Humanities of Indonesia

The ontological question of woman’s nature forms the focus of this essay, which develops the theory of “woman-becoming…” to examine how the hegemonic patriarchal discourses and constructs of woman and femininity are subverted and reinterpreted in two speculative short stories by transnational Southeast Asian women writers, namely Intan Paramaditha’s “Beauty and the Seventh Dwarf” (2018) and Isabel Yap’s “Good Girls” (2021). Of interest here are the gender possibilities of the female characters, which uphold women’s freedom, agency, thinking, feeling, creation, narration and expression in the making of herstory—indeed, everywoman’s potential for change and transformation, and to become more than what …


Kebaya Feminism; Political Strategies In The Works Of Indonesian Women Writers, Aquarini Priyatna 2023 Fakultas Ilmu Budaya, Universitas Padjadjaran

Kebaya Feminism; Political Strategies In The Works Of Indonesian Women Writers, Aquarini Priyatna

Wacana, Journal of the Humanities of Indonesia

This article attempts to show and map the feminist agenda in the writings of Indonesian women writers. Focusing on selected prominent Indonesian women writers whose works can be categorized as articulating feminist ideas and perspectives, namely Suwarsih Djojopuspito, Nh Dini, Oka Rusmini, Ratih Kumala, and Intan Paramaditha, I demonstrate how these writers question and examine cultural attributes as a crucial part of gender construction in their works. This article only focuses on writing in prose. By investigating how these writers articulate themselves and how women are written in[to] their works, this research elaborates on women’s writing as rebellion and protest …

"R.A. Kartini" (1982) And "Kartini" (2017); Anguish And Silent Struggles In The Narratives Of Indonesian Women’S Empowerment Role Model, Indah S. Pratidina, Rouli Esther Pasaribu

Wacana, Journal of the Humanities of Indonesia

This study compares the portrayal of R.A. Kartini, an Indonesian female national heroine, in the biopics Sjumandjaya’s R.A. Kartini (1982) and Bramantyo’s Kartini (2017). The films were produced in the New Order and post-Reformation eras respectively, with social and cultural values translating into context-shaped standpoints in interpreting the figure of Kartini’s. Kartini is a role model associated with empowered Indonesian women and equality in education; therefore, films produced in different social and political contexts retelling her story give insights into how these issues were framed during these eras. This study uses film discourse interpretation analysis referencing dialogues and gestures from …
