Perak Academy: Down Memory Lane (9 Dec 2021)

Emeritus Prof Wang Gungwu was born on 9 October 1930 in Surabaya, Indonesia to Chinese parents from Taizhou, Jiangsu and grew up in Ipoh, Malaysia. He completed his secondary education in Anderson School, an English medium school in Ipoh. Wang studied history in the University of Malaya, where he received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees. He was a founding member of the University Socialist Club and its founding president in 1953.

Perak Academy invites all to a talk by Prof Wang Gungwu on his growing-up years. It covers memories of his childhood and education years that moulded him to who he is today – a renowned historian, sinologist and writer whose works mainly highlight the Chinese diaspora.
