BICARA I
11pg -12.30tgh

Sejarah Rakyat:
Pemberdayaan Melawan Cita Bencana
Dr. Azhar Ibrahim Alwee
Jabatan Pengajian Melayu
Universiti Nasional Singapura

Seminar ini cuba merungkai persoalan sejarah dari perspektif alternatif yang menyanggah tafsiran sejarah yang cenderung mendukung idea dominan, baik dalam fasa feudalisme, kolonialisme, orientalisme, dan nasionalisme mundur.

Visi dan peranan sejarah rakyat merangkumi empat segi utama, iaitu:
(1) menyanggah cita bencana dalam sejarah;
(2) mendukung pemberdayaan, dan
(3) menghargai sejarah sebagai visi moral, sambil
(4) mengambil kira kelompok mana yang telah membenarkan peminggiran dan pensenyapan suara, hak dan harkat rakyat.

Yang penting dalam menelurusi sejarah ini, harus dapat kita mengenalpasti dan menghargai terungkapnya resilience rakyat dalam mengharungi dan berhadapan dengan kehidupan.

BICARA II
4.30 – 6ptg

Kritik Sejarah, Sejarah Kritis:
Upaya Merungkai Pendekatan Sejarah Kebudayaan Melayu
Mohamed Imran bin Mohamed Taib
Aktivis Sosial,
The Reading Group, Singapore

Sejarah adalah suatu bidang keilmuan yang menafsir masa lampau supaya membawa makna tertentu kepada kehidupan manusia hari ini. Upaya pensejarahan itu bukan setakat mengkaji, mencatat atau melapor segala hal yang terjadi dalam meriwayat dan menafsirkan kehidupan sesuatu bangsa. Sebaliknya, ia melalui proses pemilihan dan pengasingan dari bahan-bahan sejarah, yang akhirnya merumuskan gambaran atau representasi akan hakikat sesuatu bangsa.

Gambaran dan representasi inilah yang akan dibincangkan di dalam sesi ini. Pada masa yang sama, sesi ini akan mengupas pendekatan-pendekatan dominan dalam proses pensejarahan dunia kebudayaan Melayu. Ini adalah sebahagian dari upaya membangunkan tradisi sejarah yang lebih kritis. Tanpa pemahaman sejarah yang kritis, masyarakat Melayu akan senantiasa dibelenggu corak pemikiran dan orientasi sosial yang merantai potensi bangsa untuk berkembang bebas.
