The making of Malaysian identities

Join us on Telegram and Instagram for the latest.

BMF looks at the making of Malaysian identities from the 19th Century up to today. Over time, various people, from politicians to playwrights, have conceptualised “Malaysia” and “Malaysians” in diverse ways. While Merdeka in 1957 led to the emergence of Malaysia as an independent nation-state, this is only part of a more complex story. BFM speaks to Sumit K Mandal, associate professor at the Faculty of Social Sciences in the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus.
