One of Malaysia’s most incisive historians, Dr Farish Noor continues his OtherMalaysia Public Lecture Series with another thought-provoking installment.

This lecture will focus on OtherMalaysia’s concern to re-activate our collective memory of the past and to locate our own culture and history in a wider context.

The blight of postcolonial national histories is the tendency to accept nation-state boundaries as a given and to write national histories that remain confined within fixed political-territorial limits. So there remains the tendency to see India (and South Asia) as something distinct and alien to Malaysia.

A closer look at the history of South and Southeast Asia, however, reveals a longer period of trans-oceanic contact and exchange where Indians, Malays, Sumatrans and Javanese were part of a greater trans-oceanic civilisation where both South and Southeast Asia were connected via the routes of the Indian Ocean.

This is a call for an appreciation of our collective past, and to re-think our concepts of national identity today.

This talk will be followed by Amir Muhammad’s book launch of MALAYSIAN POLITICIANS SAY THE DARNEDEST THINGS VOL.2 at 6pm.
