Dear friends in Singapore, if you have nothing better to do on Jan 25th, do join Dr Khairudin Aljunied, a Malay Studies professor, and me for a discussion on Malaysian and Singaporean history, as part of the Singapore Biennale.
I will be chatting about themes related to my first book, Floating on a Malayan Breeze. He will look at “History as Controversy:….in an increasingly digitised and globalised world, there is a need to confront – rather than sidestep – historical themes and topics that may be viewed as “controversial” or “sensitive” in the study of history…”
When: 2-430pm, Sat Jan 25th
Where: Visitors’ Briefing Room, Level 1, National Library Building
Cost: Free! But you must…
