The News in the Provinces

(p.192) Chapter 6 The News in the Provinces
Cultural Citizenship in Island Southeast Asia

Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing

University of California Press

Studying the hinterlands of Kalimantan, Indonesia, this chapter speaks of the hinterland reception of metropolitan news broadcasts. In tacking between a sketch of the metropolitan news and a more detailed portrait of its reception in Kalimantan during the late New Order period, it argues that the news is understood in the provinces in ways that its metropolitan broadcasters do not imagine. The news is key to issues of cultural citizenship in that it provides the information needed to participate in public groups concerned with political issues. The news-making process draws lines of difference and exclusion; it creates interpretive disjunctions and political asymmetries along lines of ethnicity, class, language, urbanity, gender, and generation.

Keywords:   hinterland reception, metropolitan news, Kalimantan, cultural citizenship, political issues
