Sharing a recent feature article of Dr Yamin Cheng from the "Berita" a newsletter from the Malaysia/Singapore/Brunei Studies Group for Asian Studies in their Autumn 2014 edition. * Malaysian Chinese Muslims in Search of an Identity (By Dr Yamin Cheng) How is one to characterize the identity of a Malaysian Chinese Muslim? In my book, A Chinese Life of Islam – The Search for Identity(IBT Books, Kuala Lumpur, 2012), I mentioned four factors, or situations, that have direct bearings on the identity of the Malaysian Muslims of Chinese descent. These are, (1) the Malay factor (2) the Chinese factor (3) the history of Islam, and (4) Westernization. The Malay factor is the most immediate factor that has everything to do with the Chinese perception of Islam in Malaysia. The Chinese see Islam as a Malay religion and a Chinese who becomes a Muslim becomes a Malay person, speaks the Malay language,practises the Malay way of life, and, most significantly to the Chinese eyes, relinquishes his Chinese identity for go ...

So yeah. With the proposal on visa waivers in Japan for Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam (at the eve of ASEAN Integration and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics), the use of soft power might indeed appear "on the rise" within Japanese policy. Even as ASEAN itself seems to be undergoing some under-the-water tensions among neighbors as potential lines are drawn between those who are hostage to China and those who are trying to supposedly contest it. And some mofos claimed Japanese Studies is becoming unsexy. Har har har. Asian Studies it is. I think I know my field now.

FROM MY BOOKSHELF: THE WEEKLY BOOK REVIEW OVERSEAS INDIANS: THE GLOBAL FAMILY by SHUBHA SINGH, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad Institute of Asian Studies, 567 Diamond Harbour Road, Behala, Kolkata 700 054, India The rise of a prosperous, confident overseas Indian community since the late 1980s has changed the image of the ‘Pravasi’ (overseas) Indian community in India. Overseas Indians have become visible internationally as many of them have reached heights of success and found a place in the lists of international leaders in their areas of expertise. The Indian diaspora is formed of numerous layers and segments that correspond to the time of migration, the place of origin in India and the country of settlement. Overseas Indians are descendants of migrants who went to Malaysia, Sri Lanka and other South East Asian countries and as indentured workers travelled to Trinidad and Tobago, Mauritius, Suriname, East Africa, South Africa and Fiji. There are first generation migrants to Britain, Canada, America and oth ...

Principled opposition is expected when litigating issues in the public square, and the Hindu American Foundation (HAF) , for which I serve as the Senior Director, has at times faced stiff opposition from the right and left of the ideological spectrum in response to various positions, reports, and statements released by HAF. Recently, in our campaign to oppose what we believe to be a Hinduphobic, Anti-India Resolution, (H. Res. 417), an ostensible coalition calling itself the Coalition Against Genocide, and made up of far fewer member organizations than it claims, struck again. It has lodged some pretty inflammatory allegations against HAF — calling us “Hindu Supremacists” and trying to link HAF with the Hindutva movement in India. While those of us amongst the old guard at HAF are used to ad hominems from time to time, I was especially touched by the reaction shared by Nicholas O’Connell, a member of of our Executive Council, who will soon join the master’s program in South Asian Studies with a ...

Here's a little bit about it: This course will explore the ways that South Asians create, imagine, and construct identity and community in the United States. Our questions of inquiry will include the following: What are the historical, political, cultural and critical lenses through which we can view and understand South Asian identity and community formation? What does it mean to adopt and use a collective South Asian American identity? What can we learn from historical moments and experiences, cultural production, and organizing struggles of communities of color as methods and paths to identity formation?

Thailand on the brink Mark Fenn Protesters seize a bulldozer in an attempt to plow through police barricades outside Government House last month. (WNV/Mark Fenn) Thailand is no stranger to political turmoil but the current unrest looks set to be a protracted and especially bitter affair, raising the very real possibility of civil war. The stage seems set for a showdown between anti-government forces, backed by powerful vested interests, and a flawed but democratically elected government that enjoys mass support, especially in its rural heartlands. The conflict is being waged between rival factions of the elite, but also on class, ethnic and regional fronts. Predicting the future in Thai politics is futile, but more mass protests and bloodshed on the streets seem inevitable. Over the past two months, tens – perhaps hundreds – of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets of the capital Bangkok to demand less democracy, and the overthrow of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s government. They ...

Student Testimonial for Japan Summer Experience No. 3 (By K.O., JSE 13): "Whenever I got the first email about the Japan Summer Experience, I’m pretty sure I deleted it and deemed it something I wouldn’t be interested in because I did not think I would be attracted to anything relating to Japan. Later on I got another email and rethought the possibilities and my motives for a free trip to Japan. Although I did not know much about Japanese culture or Japan in general, I chose to apply for the program because it seemed like a great opportunity to travel and the application was easy. The year of Japanese Language courses and the seminar seemed pretty intimidating; I really had no idea if this was something I wanted to commit to, but I realized that if I didn't go, it would be a shame to regret the missed opportunity to apply, so I applied anyway. I wasn’t completely sure that it was the right decision to go and I decided last minute (I waited until the last possible day to confirm I was going). However ...

My Summer Internship at the Osaka Foundation of International Exchange: During this summer, I had the opportunity to experience first-hand what it means to work at a Japanese style office while doing an internship at the Osaka Foundation of International Exchange - an umbrella organization of the Osaka Prefectural Government dedicated to promoting international cooperation and cultural exchange. Like many Japanese office workers, I would spend one and a half hours every day travelling to and from my work place during the commuter rush. Of course, the trains, as a rule, were always crowded or as we Latvians would say the people were packed together like “herrings in a barrel” and I would find myself wondering how everyone was able to keep so calm, despite being fully dressed in the traditional Japanese black business suits and the thermometer hitting the + 35 °C mark, and thanking my lucky stars that the office where I was to work did not have a strict dress code. After alighting from the train and wa ...

[re-post from Fri, Jan03] BALANCE: Both of my friends where I’m staying work w non-profit orgs promoting community development projects. Andrew, who has a PhD in Asian studies & is fluent in several languages, is a project director here for Oxfam-UK. His program works with local citizens’ advocacy groups, supporting their efforts on issues such as land reform, community health & the environment. Giang, who achieved a masters in Sociology in the US while she & Andrew were my housemates in Wash DC, started a community development organization back in her home town of Hanoi: “Action for the City”. Over the years, from just a dream she’s guided its growth & success, & has started a sister organization here in Hoi An. Their projects include promoting organic gardening and farming (so, of course, Giang & Andrew’s home has a big organic garden that has provided greens & veggies for our meal every night). Giang see’s food production as a key to people reconnecting locally as a community, & at our hu ...

On November 6th, Manhattanville College Library held a book launch of “The Journal of Wu Yubi: The Path to Sagehood” which was translated by Theresa Kelleher, Associate Professor of Asian Studies and World Religions. During the talk, Dr. Kelleher shared some of her favorite quotes in the book, showing the connection between the past and the present; between an author who embraced Confucian ideas in the 1400’s and us dealing with our daily struggles. The book was warmly received by an enthusiastic audience, with many in attendance getting their books signed by the author. The event was hosted by the Departments of Asian Studies and World Religions, and a lovely reception ensued after the talk.
Buddhist heritage of Tamil Nadu and its links with Lanka November 12, 2013, 4:43 pm By Dr. Nirmala Chandrahasan The cultural affinities between Tamil Nadu our closest neighbour and Sri Lanka are many but little is known of the religious ties which bound the two countries between the early years of the Christian era and the 14th century AD, during which time Buddhism was prevalent in South India. Buddhism came to South India before the 3rd Sangam period in the 2nd century BC. Pandit Hisselle Dharmaratana mahathera, in his Buddhism in South India states that there is evidence that Ven. Mahinda Thera, Emperor Asoka’s son also spread the Dhamma in Tamil Nadu. The Mahathera states "although the chronicles say he arrived through his supernatural powers, scholars are of the opinion that he travelled by sea and called at Kaveripattinam on the east coast of Tamil Nadu on his way to Sri Lanka". Dr Shu Hikosake Director Professor of Buddhism, Institute of Asian Studies in Madras in his book Buddhism in Tamil Nadu ...
