History on Repeat #2: Rethinking Melaka and the Sejarah Melayu

History on Repeat is a new eight-part miniseries that aims to delve into key aspects of Malaysian history. While we won’t be able to cover every period and topic in our vast and complex past, we will be having a series of conversations on key subjects, places and themes, and discussing why our history still matters today. For our second episode, we speak with Ahmat Adam, independent scholar, and discuss the Sejarah Melayu, a major source for studying the flowering of Malay courtly culture and trade under the famous Melaka Sultanate. On this segment, we explore debates around this key text and period in history, and how the Melaka Sultanate has influenced the history of Malaya and Malaysia up to the present day.
