Sample text

All of the students attend college in Malang and most are from East Java. The headmaster, Hasyim Muzadi was the head of NU East Java, and a khalif (deputy) in the Qadiri-Naksibandia tarekat (Sufi order). As mentioned above, the schools selected are all engaged in redefining the role and function of pesantren, and hence the nature of the pesantren world. The three main cases suggest different models for both Indonesian and pesantren world identity as well as for pesantren curriculum. This ethnographic research established the nature of the daily activities of both kyai and santri.

2 Grounds of Tebu Ireng Clearly, however, some of the space (bank, kitchen, library, store) is profane. It is the inclusion of profane spaces into the sacred geography that provides a model for Muslim living. The message is clear: modern conveniences are acceptable as long they are kept in their proper place. The Mosque–Graveyard Complex: The Sacred Center Mircea Eliade, citing Levy-Bruhl, suggests that a space may be sacred because a mythical hero did something or built something there. Further the hero may even be buried there (1958:367).

Further, culture wars are simultaneously about morality and identity. The present work shows how the members of a particular segment of East Javanese society are trying to shape the religious and moral foundations of both East Javanese and wider Indonesian society. Hunter also reminds us of the place of education in any conflict over the nature of society. Although Hunter stresses that education is one of the contested issues, the East Javanese case shows that it is also one of the arenas in which the conflict is fought; through education, young men and women are given a particular view of the world, which they are then encouraged to carry out into society.
