“A Handbook for Postgraduate Supervision”

There has been a presumption that havinga PhD in itself is enough to guarantee
effective supervision. However, supervising a postgraduate requires specific
knowledge and skills. This handbook exposes both new and experienced supervisors to some of the
good practices in supervision. It draws on examples from a wide range of countries
and from the experiences of Malaysian supervisors. Divided into eight parts, this
handbook focuses on the following issues.
• Facilitating the transition from undergraduate to postgraduate studies
• Good practices in supervision.
• Assisting students to write
• Assisting students with publishing
• Examination and Viva
• Developing a vibrant research culture
• Concerns in supervision
• Resources and software for supervisors
A Handbook for Postgraduate Supervision focuses on the knowledge and skills that
support the supervisor to establish a close but professional working relationship
with students.

“Wildlife on Coal Island”

Wildlife on Coal Island is a collection of eleven stories, all set on a fictional island located in present day Malaysia. Characters tell their own stories but occasionally appear in the stories of others. The collection is in the vein of V.S. Naipaul’s Miguel Street and Sherwood Anderson’s Winesburg, Ohio where place and character define the trajectory of the stories.

Coal Island is peopled with such characters: An ageing Chinese opera singer and her pet monkey. A self-proclaimed psychic who sees kingfishers in the sky and is convinced that a tsunami is coming. A murderer who finds worldly wisdom in a wandering Malayan tapir. An ex-colonial plantation overseer, battling with the literal and lateral python on his past. An obese supermarket matriarch who talks to bats.

“Gamelan Serdang Collection Re-Creation”

Originally, the repertoire was thought to be played as an exercise in sight reading, improvisation and arrangement. Simple melodic cycles employing a choice of 3-5 pitches serve as basic material, some of them reflect patterns taken from local dance melodies. Metric versatility and rhythmic structuring individually planned for each instruments of the gamelan make a great part of the entire composition that is achieved through team work during the rehearsals. Well discussed introductions and transitions in various phases of each piece contribute to the individuality of the repertoire. Tempo and dynamics are very important due to the fact that performances of one and the same gamelan over a certain time period often suffer from the limitation in tuning and the impossibility of transposition. Though gamelan cultures, especially in Indonesia, can traditionally provide essential changes in mood and character through an enormous amount of multi-layered and metro-rhythmic features, gamelan playing in Malaysia cannot yet rely on an audience equally educated in musical perception of gamelan music that could appreciate small rhythmic differences and stylistic refinements in repetitive musical structures. Therefore, the repertoire can be seen as a collection of mostly modern compositions applying traditional production patterns and improvisatory forms of musical communication in a popular way.
