Professor Playlist: Mulaika Hijjas Mon, 2019-06-17 16:48
Professor Playlist is a new podcast series on SOAS Radio, which invites SOAS academics into the studio to share their personal journeys in research, interspersed with five of their favourite pieces of music. Frederik Molin and Almira Farid are the hosts of this first season, taking listeners through the first five guests of the series.
In this episode, Almira is joined by Dr Mulaika Hijjas, lecturer in the Southeast Asian Studies Department. She talks about her journey into the Jawi language and the Malay Manuscript Tradition, and what it means to her to teach Southeast Asia from afar.
