The Humanities Research Cluster was established in UM in early 2009. Our aims to enhance a research culture that increases collaboration across centres, faculties and universities locally and internationally and addresses crucial issues of surrounding communities. It elicits and encourages ways of thinking that focus on understanding meaning, purpose, and goals, and explores rich subjective experiences and values. It therefore plays a pivotal role in the debates and controversies in society. Humanities research promotes inter-, multi- and trans-disciplinary relationships using various approaches to examine fundamental and applied issues related to humanity.
By doing so, it brings about paramount change and real contributions through methods that are primarily philosophical, analytical, critical, speculative, interpretive, ethnographic and pragmatic.
The Centre for ASEAN Regionalism University of Malaya (CARUM) in collaboration with the International Association of Universities (IAU) and the Ministry of Education, Malaysia will be organising "The ASEAN Higher Education Forum" from 9-10 June 2015 at the Eastin Hotel, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia.

The series of ongoing lectures will focus on creating junctures between Anthropology, sociology, and linguistics, and decreasing distance between these fields. The sessions will observe the constituents of linguistics and ways in which these constitutes correlate with classical and modern anthropology, so to develop conceptions of and to describe the world, and consequently, to assist to plan methodologies and research. The two-hour sessions will include a presentation format and subsequent discussions and dialogue time. All talks intend to engage dialogue and in no way aim to exemplify transmissive pedagogies.More Info
