Abstract

INDONESIA Artikel ini mendiskusikan bagaimana citra perempuan dan paham kebangsaan dalam pandangan 15 mahasiswi Perguruan Tinggi Keagamaan Islam (PTKI) di balik cadar mereka.Secara metodologis, penelitian ini ikut mendorong pemaknaan sebuah fakta dari perspektif pelaku dengan melibatkan suara perempuan sebagai subyek yang mampu menguraikan pilihan dan menjelaskan tindakannya secara bertanggungjawab. Pemilihan mahasiswi PTKI sebagai subyek penelitian terkait cadar masih sangat minim dilakukan di antara kecenderungan umum penelitian tentang cadar yang menyasar perempuan dari kelompok militan. Penelitian ini mengungkap pemaknaan cadar sebagai arena kontestasi identitas dan ideologi yang dinamis dan terbuka. Dinamika dan keterbukaan tersebut dimungkinkan karena faktor internal maupun eksternal. Secara internal, mahasiswi masih berada pada fase pencarian dan pembentukan jati diri. Sementara faktor external adalah kenyataan bahwa cadar saat ini secara umum terarah menjadi sebuah trend fashion dan gaya hidup (religious life style). Dinamika tersebut tampak pada ambiguitas citra diri perempuan yang mereka pegang dengan menempatkan perempuan sebagai sumber fitnah sekaligus sebagai tiang negara. Keterbukaan terlihat pada narasi nasionalisme mereka yang dibaluti sikap inklusif dan toleran yang kuat. Walaupun patut juga dicatat, kecenderungan eksklusivisme dan konservatisme dari sebagian kecil mereka. Temuan penelitian ini memberikan kontribusi ide bagi gerakan emancipatory seperti kesetaraan gender dan penguatan nasionalisme untuk terus aktif dan lebih kreatif menyodorkan alternative bagi pemapanan identitas dan ideologi mereka ke arah yang lebih progresif. ENGLISH This article discusses the image of women and nationalism in the view of 15 female students of the Islamic Religious University (PTKI) in West Nusa Tenggara behind their face-veils (cadar). Methodologically, this study encourages the interpretation of facts from the perspective of the agents by involving the voices of women as subjects who are able to describe their choices and explain their actions responsibly. The choice of female university students as subjects for veil-related research is short among the general trends of research on veils targeting women from militant groups. This research reveals the meaning of the veil as a dynamic and open contestation of women’s identity, gender ideology, and nationalism. The dynamics and openness are possible due to the fact that female students are still in the formation phase of identities while veiling existence nowadays more about fashion trends and lifestyle. The dynamics appear in the ambiguity of the self-image of women they hold by placing women as sources of defamation (fitnah) as well as being pillars of the state. Openness is seen in the narrative of their nationalism which is wrapped in a strong inclusive and tolerant attitude, in addition to the tendency of exclusivism and conservatism of a small number of them. The findings of this study contribute to ideas for emancipatory movements such as gender equality and strengthening nationalism. The movements are to continue to be active and more creative in offering alternatives to the establishment of those female students’ identity and ideology in a more progressive direction.
