Blk 43 Malan Road, The Single Screen

The total land area of Southeast Asia is almost evenly divided between countries which are part of continental Asia, and countries that are made of archipelagoes such as The Philippines and Indonesia. But beyond the lands of continents and islands, the sea is also one of the most important geophysical reality of the region. In this session, Dr Vivienne Wee speaks about sea nomads — the Orang Laut community in the Riau region; Dr Donna Brunero speaks about histories of port city communities; and Dr Wee Beng Geok speaks about maritime commerce and industry.
