This is the moment for Global Chinese History and Literature Awareness and Promotional Campaign. The campaign should start in villages and towns, collecting and preserving local history and literature, since the history and culture of the Chinese primarily presents the daily lives of the locals. While governments and official records preserve major events related to the nation, the lives, events, inner development of logics and mindset of the locals are preserved in specific places. Therefore, the abundance of information available in various local communities waits for our discovery and research. Over time, the collective effort will become a historical monument of Chinese in this country.
The New Era University College Department of Southeast Asian Studies builds the Malaysian Chinese Villages and Towns Information Network. Following the theme of “One village one feature,” we organize and categorize the summary of development of Chinese villages and towns in the Malay Peninsula. The information includes the village’s and town’s history, society, economy, religious beliefs and etc. We hope to provide a wider scope for local Chinese literature and history research, while promoting the interest of local literature and history exploration.
