Adat Perpatih telah dibawa ke Semenanjung Tanah Melayu oleh masyarakat Minang dari Sumatera yang telah mengekalkan adat resam mereka apabila berhijrah pada kurun ke-14. Adat tradisi yang diturunkan secara lisan ini,merangkumi secara menyeluruh pelbagai aspek kehidupan masyarakat termasuk pelantikan Yamtuan dan Undang, hukuman perlanggaran adat, peraturan nikah dan kahwin, pewarisan dan sebagainya. Di Semenanjung Malaysia, Adat Perpatih hanya diamalkan di Negeri Sembilan, Naning di Melaka dan penduduk berketurunan Minangkabau di Kampung Lukut, di Kota Tinggi, Johor. Walau bagaimanapun, Adat Perpatih yang dipraktikkan hari ini telah mengalami penyesuaian dengan amalan dan adat Orang Asli yang merupakan penduduk asal negeri, yang mengamalkan adat tempatan.

En. Mohd Khairil akan membincangkan tentang sistem pentadbiran Adat Perpatih di Negeri Sembilan dan kedudukannya dalam pentadbiran masa kini.

Adat Perpatih was brought to the Malay Peninsula by the Minang society from Sumatera who retained their customs when they migrated in the 14th century. This traditional custom which is passed down orally covers a whole range of aspects of social life including the appointment of Yamtuan and Undang, punishment for breach of custom, marriage and regulations governing marriage, inheritance and other matters. In Peninsular Malaysia, the Adat Perpatih is practised only in Negeri Sembilan, Naning in Malacca and by descendants of the Minangkabau people in Kampung Lukut, Kota Tinggi, Johor. Nevertheless, the Adat Perpatih which is practised here today has adapted with the practice and custom of the indigenous people, who are the original inhabitant of the state, who practice local customs.

En. Mohd Khairil in his talk will discuss the Perpatih Adat administration system in Negeri Sembilan and its place in today’s administration.

The Wet Plate Collodion: A Demonstration of a Historical Photographic Process by Dr. K. Azril Ismail

Posted on Updated on

Banner 4 March

ABOUT THE TALK

The talk will discuss the historical photographic process before the era of manufactured photographic celluloid films and gelatin silver prints as practised by early pioneers such as Sachtler & Co, Carter & Co, Kleingrothe, Henry Schuren, G.A. Schleesselmann, the famous G.R. Lambert & Co., and various other Europeans who opened studios in Singapore and Penang where they carried out work in Kedah, Malacca, and Borneo. The extraordinary images of “Old Malaya”, which we often regard with a sense of nostalgia, romanticised (or colonialised, depending on one’s political perspective) various aspects of our people and places through this visual representation.

In this talk, Dr. Azril will look at how these extraordinary images were made – from the clear glass coated with a thin layer of collodion salt solution, then immersed in a silver bath solution rendering it light sensitive, to exposing and developing it in-situ, either as a negative, or a positive (ambrotype).

In addition, Dr. Azril will do a brief demonstration replicating this process using an antique camera and an adapted mobile darkroom, with similar chemicals used in the 19th century process, to develop the plate on the spot.

An accomplished practising photographer and academic, Dr. Azril’s work has been featured in international exhibitions and published widely in art & photography magazines and journals

Area Character Statement in Development Control Planning Case Study: Iskandar Malaysia Area Character Statement (IMACS)

Posted on Updated on

27 March - Area Character Statement in Development Control Planning

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS

Nazri Noordin is the Managing Director of Iktisas Planners Sdn Bhd, with over 30 years of experience specializing in the fields of urban planning, urban design and conservation planning, and environmental consultancy. He graduated with a Dip. TRP (ITM, 1983), B.URP and M.URP (both from Illinois, 1986 and 1988 respectively). He is the Immediate Past President of the Malaysian Institute of Planners (2013-2017) and most recently, he led the team which won the 2018 MIP Award for Planning Excellence (Category: Heritage & Conservation) for the Iskandar Malaysia Area Character Statement (IMACS).

ABOUT THE LECTURE

TPr Nazri will outline the approach used in the Area Character Statement and how the IMACS study sought to define the character of the place by identifying the history, nature and culture which shaped southern Johor. This approach expands on the traditional approach of Development Control Planning which focuses on applying generic physical planning controls to one which integrates the character and heritage of the place with spatial and development planning.

ABOUT THE SHARING SESSION

This sharing session will present the work carried out by UKM’s Governance and Education for Heritage Conservation Research Group on Langkawi Geopark (GAMAT). Langkawi Island, which was the first UNESCO Global Geopark in Malaysia as well as in Southeast Asia, can be a model for integrated heritage conservation and sustainable development. As a nature-based tourism destination, Langkawi Geopark has a huge responsibility to conserve its natural heritage (both geological and biological) as well as its cultural heritage. From their respective perspectives and specialisations, the GAMAT team will offers insights into some of the issues and challenges pertaining to Langkawi Geopark as a model for integrated heritage conservation and sustainable development. With the tagline ‘making the past present for the future’, this team sought to highlight the significance of heritage conservation which carries the spirit of Semangat Kawi by underlying the symbiotic relationship between heritage (of the past), current development (of the present) and the needs of the next generations (for the future).

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS

The GAMAT team comprises academics and researchers from different academic disciplines and includes Prof. Dr. Rahimah Abdul Aziz, Datin Paduka Dr. Halimaton Saadiah Hashim, Prof. Dr. Ong Puay Liu, Associate Professor Dr. Sarah Aziz, Associate Professor Dr. Geraldine K.L.
