I went to the 2nd Annual Malaysia Round Table, organised by the Centre for Malaysian Studies, Monash Asia Institute, with the support of the Malaysian Students Department and the Victorian Malaysian Postgraduate Association, in Monash University in Caulfield today. The round table is actually more like a paper presentation session, providing a forum for Melbourne-area postgraduate students working on Malaysia from all disciplinary backgrounds to share what they have been researching.
There were interesting topics, imagine some of them were about pantun translation to English, disorderliness in our Parliament, the problems of Malaysian historical movie and various others. Even got some very good advice from one of the speakers. Maybe due to time contraints, there’s no “real” session of research-experience sharing of the presenters with the participants.
