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. About Speaker Dr Tan Teng Phee obtained his PhD from the Asia Research Centre, Murdoch University, Western Australia. He was the recipient of Lee Kong Chian Research Fellowship (2009) and Taiwan Fellowship (2018). His research interests include Overseas Chinese social history, oral history and collective memory.   Pre-registration required. Please contact exhibitions@singaporeccc.org.sg for any enquiries.
