DESCRIPTION

Sorotan pascakolonial dalam sastera menggali suara-suara dan pandangan masyarakat yang pernah dijajah. Dalam korpus kesuasteraan Melayu, puisi dan prosa yang dihasilkan mengambil sudut oksidentalisme yang meletakkan Timur sebagai pemerhati dan pengkaji sementara Barat sebagai objek yang dikaji. Pertukaran sudut pandangan ini melahirkan karya-karya yang menarik untuk diteliti. Apakah ada perubahan dalam suara pascakolonial dalam sastera Melayu dari awal kemerdekaan sehingga kini?


Postcolonial Insights on Malay Literature

In the body of Malay literature, poetry, and prose, we find a subversion of the strategies of Orientalism: the East is positioned as an observer, and the West as the object of study. This inversion of viewpoints has produced an interesting range of work. How has the postcolonial voice in Malay literature changed from the beginning of independence to the present time?

This session is in Malay and is co-presented with Unggun Creative.
