Abstract

This paper sets out to see the connection between proxemics and cosmopolitanism. Cosmopolitans may be understood as citizens of a borderless state or owners of global citizenship, with their communication also being borderless. Despite of this borderlessness, cosmopolitan people usually come from many different cultures. This global communication is better understood as an intercultural communication, in which the member of cosmopolitan people from many culture use their mother language. Their perception about place are a longtime construction process, built with experience and education, mixed with all the information they have gathered from media. According to the identity of cosmopolitan, Indonesian cosmopolitans also have an identity of being global citizens. They like travelling around the world (or wish to do so), but they choose to stay in Indonesia with family and friends. This research project describes how Indonesian cosmopolitans prefer to live in Indonesia despite of the limitation of good environment for living. The project also analyzes the perception of space and place of the informants during their time studying in Australia and working in Indonesia. In accordance with the methodology chosen for the research projected, interviews of the three participants or informants of the Special International Class program were conducted in Jakarta on July-August 2016. The informants were active students and are currently working near Jakarta. The research finds differences inherent in Indonesian cosmopolitans: 1) Indonesian cosmopolitans do not travel but they like living together with their imagination for being one as a family with “makan tak makan yang penting kumpul”; 2) these cosmopolitans have an open attitude. They do not close up in their own homeland, with multiculturalism background “Bhinneka Tunggal Ika”. With proxemics dimension analysis, the researcher linked their communication experience as cosmopolitans after their coming to Indonesia as alumni or graduates, with several relevant answers between their nonverbal intercultural communication, e.g.: orientation, kinesthetic, sense of touch, thermal codes, oldfaction code, voice and food.
