This study aims to describe how topics about ulemas are represented in Kompas. To this end, a corpus-based critical discourse analysis is performed by employing a keyword method. The corpus is built from ulemas-related news collected from KOMPAS from January 2017 to April 2019. After the news corpus is analyzed, the keywords found are then categorized into semantic categories to find out the semantic preference of ulemas-related news. A concordance is then generated for each of such keywords in order to obtain the context of the news and further to find out the main topic discussed. As the result, several salient topics are found in ulemas-related news, namely (1) politics, (2) group, (3) blasphemy, and (4) education.
