Abstract

Edward Saids Orientalism (1978) suggested that Orientalist discourse was a devious effort of the West to lure the colonized and the colonizer into an imaginary existence that would help ensure its domination of the East. Through the work of Homi K. Bhabha, this discourse was broadened to include the notion of delusive and elusive representations of the colonized "Other". When Lacan introduced the psychoanalytic approach to complement the interrogation of
tropes in western historiography, it became conclusive that the colonial discourse would embody resistance in the form of subaltern voices from the moment of colonial encounter. This article hopes to posit the Tionghua peranakan
people within this colonial discourse, claiming their subaltern marginality and diaspo[ricj experience as the impetus that propelled them into a head-on encounter with the colonial.


Edward Said dalam karyanya Orientalism (1978) mengatakan wacana Orientalis adalah usaha licik negara barat untuk menarik kaum yang dijajah dan juga kaum penjajah kepada suatu kewujudan bayangan yang akan menolong barat menguasai timur. Melalui tulisanya, Homi K. Bhabha telah meluaskan tanggapan itu untuk meliputi yang lain-lain. Dan apabila Lacan memperkenalkan pendekatan psychoanalysis untuk melengkapkan penyiasatan topik dalam historiografi barat, sudah ternyata bahawa wacana kolonial akan meliputi penentangan ke dalam bentuk suara subaltern dari ketika
pertemuan penjajahan. Rencana ini cubs menempatkan orang peranakan Cina di Indonesia dalam wahana kolonial yang menuntut peminggiran subaltern serta pengalaman disporik sebagai pemangkin yang membawa mereka kepada pertembungan secara langsung dengan kaum penjajah.
