"Disclosure is not disclosure of which is spatial, static, and final, but the temporal, dynamic and processual. In this respect the finality of a work does not lie in 'kedisanaan'nya, the availability and the existence of an objective, but on his involvement in the processes of aesthetic , cultural, social, political, economic and even in space and time, "said Pro. Dr. Faruk, SU in the Senate Hall on Wednesday (9 / 3) when inaugurated as Professor of the Faculty of Cultural Sciences UGM.
Ontologically the works of postmodern literature is a literary work that presents itself in such a way as an open discursive and historical process, not something that is final. By way of existence, according to Faruk, humanities challenged to try to find the methodological tools that can capture and understand the process, dynamics, change and variety, not something static, fixed, invariant. "Surely the answer to this challenge is easy to say, but difficult to implement," he said.
In view of the difficulty becomes greater Faruk considering the study of literature itself has been busy with the discussion and exploration of theoretical rather than methodological. Rarely there are books that discuss the issue in the research methods literature. "It is not surprising that Indonesia itself, precisely since the late 1970s until the 1980s when discussion of the theory is so warm there, scientists still can not be impressed literature distinguishes theoretical problems with methodological problems," said faculty FIB UGM.
The trend can be seen, for example in the dissertation-dissertation produced in that period, for example dissertations in the humanities who pertma at GMU, there is the Hikayat Hang Tuah: Analysis of Structure and Function (Sutrisno, 1983) and diertasi I. Kuntara Wiryamartana entitled Arjunawiwaha who maintained in 1982 and published in 1990.
"As such, literary scholars, especially in Indonesia needs to give more serious attention by performing more extensive explanation and intensive on methodological issues, particularly related to the phenomenon of literary works postmodernist sensibility born of multimedia," said the man born in Banjarmasin , February 10, 1957.
