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 fourth episode, we speak with Dr Mulaika Hijjas, Lecturer in South East Asian Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, about the history of women in nineteenth-century Malaya.
