Abstract

Literary writings of diaspora writers have flourished in the bookshelves to give not only diversity to the world literature but also to make us aware that there are 'other people' in the neighbourhood. Apparently, diasporic writers have a special way of looking of their worlds due to their privilege although they claim it as causing the feeling of being in exile or rootless. Multiculturalism is a reality in Indonesia. A country blessed with rich cultures, the possibility of people meeting with those of different cultural backgrounds is huge and intercultural that it has to be promoted constantly to help people understand accept the richness with differences and various cultures it has. Like the places where diasporic writers who write multicultural themes feel alienated sometimes minorities feel the same when dealing with their surroundings. Multicultural writers have brought with themselves certain points of views in the literature they write. Therefore, adding multicultural literary contents into the Indonesian classrooms will give benefits to the readers to learn to accept multiculturalism from the experience of others. In discussing this topic, the writer will also use examples from multicultural literary writings.
