Arab Symbols in Coastal Communities for the Development of Multicultural Environment in Semarang
1 Department of History, Faculty of Humanities, Universitas Diponegoro, Semarang, Indonesia
This study aims to identify the symbols and attributes of Arab as part of shaping the multi-ethnic identity of Semarang. As a coastal community, the culture of Semarang is formed by various ethnicities, such as Javanese, Chinese, and Arabic. It is believed to have formed Semarang identity. Through historical research, it is seen that the identity of Arabs in Semarang is more “fluid”. Therefore, it is able to shape the cosmopolitan identity of Semarang. Following Bikhu Parekh’s concept about multiculturalism, this preliminary study can be used for developing a cultural environment based on intercultural experimental efforts while at the same time developing the cultural lives of each ethnic group.
Key words: Arab symbol / multicultural environment / Semarang
