The ruin of Matapena Community as a community for pesantren literature activist in 2014 does not end the reproduction of pesantren literature with its pesantren cultural problems as a spiritual journey in planting self-identity in alternative medias with popular genres. This article discusses discoursive contestation of self-identity in two pesantren literary works; Sensei, Assalamualaikum Desu! by Diyana Millah Islami and Menggapai Kosong by Izzul Muttaqin. Construction of Self-identity in the literary works engages to the contestation of self-identzity discourse in the real world and the cyber world of the writers as milenial generations. Through theory of representation by Stuart Hall, I choose consructionist approach with Foucauldian discoursive model to analyze the works. Therefore, the data are taken from the two literary works and also the social phenomena relate to the years of the works have been produced to find out the meaning production constructed in works. The result shows an in-between-ess of an absoluteness of religious ideology with the open-ness of the millenial gen that limitless in time and space. Technology and latecapitalism facilitate the fluidity of time and space boundary presented in the easthetic works.
