The New Perspective on the CPM webinar is a half-day online event that will engage experts on film and literature to discuss the impact of media that was produced concurrently with and after the period of the Malayan Emergency by British, local artistes, and outsiders sympathetic to the Malayan Communist Party and its cause. From these, the webinar will explore how the Emergency was perceived by (1) the Government, (2) the MCP and the insurgents, and (3) the local peoples. This discussion aims to analyse the manner in which art functions as a record of cultural memory, and therefore functions as a resource that can either reinforce or challenge the official history of the Malayan Emergency and how it is perceived by society. Furthermore, the webinar will explore how this body of art and media informs our understanding of the development of Singapore and Malaysia as postcolonial nations in the subsequent period.
