History on Repeat #3: Portuguese and Dutch Legacies in the Malay Peninsula

History on Repeat is an 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 third episode, we speak with Sheila de Costa, President of the Selangor and Federal Territory Eurasian Association, and Dennis De Witt, independent historian. Together, we explore the historical impact of the Portuguese and Dutch in the Malay Peninsula, focussing on the communities they built and their continued legacies today.
