Millenial Santri in Pesantren Santri, Leisure Time, and Activities in Cyberspace
Abstract: This study aims to discuss millennial santri in pesantren. The millennial santri is closely related to the millennial generation discourse discussed first by Strauss and Howe in their work entitled Generation and Fourth Turning. They try to classify the generations based on the similarity of the birth span and the similarity of certain events. Millennial generation is those born between the 1980s and 2000s and have a very social behavior attached to the use of internet technology (digital natives) in everyday life. From the beginning, many have criticized this prediction because they only consider macro matters regardless of micro factors, so such discourse is not considered to be cross-socio-cultural but in contrast, through this study, the authors found the fact that micro factors do not preclude the prevailing of such predictions. It can be seen through the institutionalization of free time as the widespread access to cyberspace by santri in pesantren environment. In cyberspace, most santri connected through the use of social networking Facebook and Youtube. With these findings, it can be argued that santri are no longer the children of the pesantren tradition but at the same time have become representative of the modern tradition that developed outside the pesantren environment. In addition, at the same time, it also dismisses the notion that micro factors can preclude the prevailing of such predictions.
