FASS is delighted to be hosting the 13th Malaysia-Singapore Forum here at NUS, marking 20 years of networking and collaboration between the two Arts and Social Sciences Faculties of University of Malaya (UM) and NUS respectively. The UM delegation was warmly welcomed by Dean of FASS, Prof Brenda Yeoh who referred to the special historical ties between the two universities and to the collegiate relations that have built over the years between faculty and students involved in the Forum.
The Forum is held every two years at alternating campuses and this year focused the two day discussions on the subject of ‘Nation-State and Development’. Faculty and graduate students from both universities have presented on themes covering development, gender, literature, ethnicity, history and identity. To mark this special anniversary FASS NUS has produced a short film with photo archives from past fora and interviews with academics from both universities.
