ILHAM CONVERSATIONS: STUDENT POWER! Sejarah Kebangkitan Mahasiswa Universiti Malaya ‘60an — a multimedia lecture by Fahmi Reza
12 August, 3:00 pm

“To alienate students from politics means to alienate them from their own society” — Khong Kim Hoong, University Malaya Student Union 10th Council President (1969).

Student autonomy, Students’ Union, student government, Speakers’ Corner & Solidarity Marches — the 1960s are often referred to as the golden age of the Malaysian student movement, before the Universities and University Colleges Act 1971 came into place. The student movement reached its zenith when they participated in the 1969 General Elections by releasing a Students’ Manifesto and touring major towns on the Peninsula to hold rallies and speak to tens of thousands of Malaysians.

Fahmi Reza will present his ongoing research into this under-documented period of Malaysian history in a multimedia lecture that combines rare photos, video footage, newspaper reports, archival materials, and interviews. Note: The lecture will be presented in Bahasa Malaysia.

 

BICARA ILHAM STUDENT POWER!
Sejarah Kebangkitan Mahasiswa Universiti Malaya ‘60an — Syarahan multimedia oleh Fahmi Reza
12 Ogos, 3:00ptg

“Memisahkan pelajar dari politilk bermakna mengasingkan mereka dari masyarakat” — Khong Kim Hoong, presiden Majlis ke-10 Kesatuan Pelajar Universiti Malaya (1969)

Autonomi pelajar, Kesatuan Pelajar, kerajaan pelajar, Speakers’ Corner dan Perarakan Solidariti — tahun 1960an selalu saja disebut sebagai era emas gerakan pelajar Malaysia, sebelum termaktubnya Akta Universiti dan Kolej Universiti pada 1971. Gerakan pelajar ini mencapai kemuncaknya bila mana gerakan ini menyertai Pilihanraya Umum 1969 dengan mengeluarkan Manifesto Pelajar dan menjelajah beberapa bandar-bandar utama sekitar Semenanjung dengan siri rapat umum bersama beribu-beribu penduduk Malaysia.

Fahmi Reza akan membentangkan penyelidikan berterusan beliau tentang suatu sisi sejarah Malaysia yang kurang mendapat pendedahan dengan syarahan multimedia yang akan menggabungkan foto-foto yang jarang dilihat, rakaman video, laporan akhbar, material arkib dan temubual. Nota: Syarahan akan diadakan dalam Bahasa Malaysia.
