ANU Malaysia Institute Seminar Series 2021

The 2021 ANU Malaysia Institute Seminar Series showcases cutting-edge research by leading and emerging scholars based primarily in Australia and Malaysia. It aims to promote research particularly in the social sciences and humanities, and ultimately further discussions and collaborations among Malaysian Studies scholars in Australia, Malaysia and globally. The series will run once a month for the remainder of the academic year virtually via Zoom, and will subsequently be made available online for public viewing. This series is organised by the Malaysia Institute of the Australian National University, in collaboration with the School of Social Sciences in Universiti Sains Malaysia, Penang.
