Imperial Eyes? Heart of Darkness? Reflections on the Study of Malay(si)a Chinese New Villages Public Lecture

Talk Synopsis

After the British colonial government declared a state of emergency on 23rd June 1948 in Malaya, half a million people living in the rural areas were resettled into 480 New Villages across the Malay Peninsula.

The speaker visited almost 150 New Villages to conduct oral interviews with its residents. Through their stories, he will reflect on the significance of Chinese New Villages during the Malayan Emergency (1948-1960), and its impact on the study of Chinese diaspora.
