This was a report on the Department of Malay Studies at NUS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The department, formed on 1 March 1967, was then headed by Professor Dr Syed Hussein Alatas. To commemorate its 50th anniversary, the department is organising a series of events themed ‘Malay Studies 50 years’ (MS50). In conjunction with MS50, 11 undergraduates from the NUS Malay Studies Society will be organising an event titled “Mara: Malam Kesenian 2017” (Cultural Appreciation Night 2017). Other MS50 events include Syed Hussein Alatas Inaugural Lecture, CITASENI Pottery Exhibition and the Malay Studies Golden Jubilee Conference.
