We welcome Sandy Chang, a historian from UT Austin to discuss her research on the forgotten history of Chinese women migrants to the Straits Settlements. We reflect on the challenges of archival analysis and the recovery of forgotten histories. How might an inclusive account of migration offer a more critical understanding of Malaysia and the roots of Chinese identity in the region? Tune in to find out!
