The expanding process of commodification and the development of the urban culinary industry, supported by innovations in digital technology and media, provide opportunities for ethnic cuisines to compete with other culinary traditions. This research aims to determine how the cultural identity embedded in specific cuisines is built in the culinary market and how the intrinsic value of ethnic culinary traditions is transformed in multiethnic societies. The theory used is food culture and food habits. </em><em>(Foster and Anderson 1978; Jerome, Kandel, and Pelto 1980)</em><em>. This study used qualitative research methods with an ethnographic approach. Data was collected through interviews, observations, and the author's participant observation as a citizen of the city under study. The study found that togetherness is an intrinsic value of Lampung's </em><em>seruit</em><em> commensality that is adaptive amidst socio-cultural transformation into a multicultural society. Seruit becomes an arena for constructing Lampungnese during a multiethnic urban society and growing commercial economy. Sharing meals (seruit commensality) can promote harmony among Lampung's urban ethnic groups. Mass and digital media have transformed Lampung's identity</em></p> Bartoven Vivit Nurdin, Fuad Abdulgani; Damar Wibisono; Komang Ariyanto Copyright (c) 2024 The Journal of Society and Media Mon, 29 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0700 The Experiences of Left-Behind Fathers: Breaking the Traditional Filipino Paternal Roles in Parenting <p><em>Many societies, including those in the Philippines, subscribe to the traditional concept that the father's essential responsibilities are being the provider and protector of his family. In Filipino parenting, fathers are providers for the family's economic needs while mothers are responsible for nurturing.</em> <em>More women are migrating to work abroad, leaving fathers to assume all primary parenting roles as providers, protectors, and nurturers. This has created a new family dynamic in recent years.This research paper explores Filipino fathers' experiences with a wife working abroad. Using an Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA), the researcher interviewed some employed fathers to reveal how they accepted, adapted, and made sense of the family set up as they simultaneously fulfilled the roles of both the father and mother to their children. Research revealed that when the mother left to work abroad, the father embraced their role in caring for their children. Filipino fathers are open to reversing traditional parenting roles. Although some fathers still let their wives take care of the children, many have become the primary caregivers. Parenting alone has helped them understand the importance of being involved in their children's upbringing</em></p> Joselito Gutierrez Copyright (c) 2024 The Journal of Society and Media Mon, 29 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0700 The Role of Digital Media in Determining the Direction of Indonesia’s Democracy in 2023 <p><em>This study aims to see the role of digital media in determining the direction of democracy and public opinion. This research uses a descriptive qualitative method with case studies in Indonesia and unit analysis using Nvivo 12 Plus software, which is analyzed with Computer Assistant Qualitative Data Analysis (CAQDS) and crosstab. The urgency of the media as an essential actor in democracy is because it can present broad information, active participation, responsiveness, and diversification of perspectives that shape public opinion. The results of this study show that there are three important points. 1) Digital media is able to create spaces for democratic actors in various sectors then, 2) Digital media is an informative and participatory domain, and the last is 3) Digital media is a supervisor of democracy in Indonesia; criticism suggestions and evaluations are straightforward to do by several actors in it. The media is responsible for ensuring the continuity of a healthy democracy. We need cooperation among governments, the private sector, and civil society to support democratic values in media. Criticism, literacy, and active public participation on social media are crucial for maintaining democracy in the digital era.</em></p> Yujitia Ahdarrijal, Dian Eka Rahmawati Copyright (c) 2024 The Journal of Society and Media Mon, 29 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0700 Sharing is Not Caring: Examining Intention of Sharing Misinformation Moderated by New Media Literacy <p><em>As the disruption era grows more and more apparent, so does the spread of misinformation. This research examines the intention to share misinformation moderated with New Media Literacy (NML). With data from 100 undergraduate students via online survey and analyzed using SmartPLS4, the study reveals that information-seeking significantly influences the intention to share misinformation, even when moderated by New Media Literacy. In contrast, status-seeking and entertainment demonstrate little impact on misinformation-sharing intent, also when moderated by New Media Literacy. Socializing, on the other hand, yields a significant but negative correlation with the intention to share misinformation, suggesting the need to share factually correct information firsthand. The finding suggests that cultivating clarity when sharing information on social media is crucial, especially when one's intent is to seek information. This study contributes to the understanding of the factors influencing the spread of misinformation and highlights the importance of new media literacy in mitigating its effects</em></p> Damar Dhiyaan Hafidz Wibowo, S.

It is imperative to consider how these channels influence social perceptions and constructs. Gender equity is a critical topic in educational contexts. A comprehensive study was conducted to analyze the portrayal of gender constructs in media narratives and their impact on gender equity in Islamic PERSIS educational environments. The study utilized qualitative research, including content analysis of media narratives and interviews with members of Islamic PERSIS organizations. The study brings to light the positive and negative roles of media narratives in shaping attitudes and perceptions about gender roles. Therefore, the study emphasizes the need to examine media representations to promote gender equity critically. The research has significant implications for contemporary media and digital communication in advancing gender equity in educational settings related to Islamic PERSIS organizations. It encourages a more responsible approach to media content creation by acknowledging the power of media narratives to shape perceptions. This contributes to a broader conversation about gender equity and the role of contemporary media in promoting social change and inclusivity</em></p> Siti Komariah, Fajar Nugraha Asyahidda, Wilodati Wilodati Copyright (c) 2024 The Journal of Society and Media Mon, 29 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0700
