Sách về lịch sử của Kampong Gelam giành được Giải thưởng Lịch sử NUS Singapore.

Winning work challenges collective notions of Singapore Malay history and shines spotlight on Singapore’s cosmopolitan and dynamic economic, political and social history over the last two centuries.

Entrepreneur and award-winning author Ms Hidayah Amin, whose work, Leluhur: Singapore’s Kampong Gelam (Helang Books, 2019), illuminates the history of one of the oldest continuously inhabited areas of Singapore, has been awarded the 2021 NUS Singapore History Prize. Ms Hidayah, who is also a NUS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences alumna, will receive a cash award of S$50,000.

Created in 2014 in support of the national SG50 programme to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s independence, the NUS Singapore History Prize is awarded to an outstanding publication that has made a lasting impact on our understanding of the history of Singapore, and that is accessible to a wide audience of specialist and non-specialist readers.

A five-member Jury Panel chaired by Mr Kishore Mahbubani, Distinguished Fellow at the NUS Asia Research Institute, unanimously selected Leluhur: Singapore’s Kampong Gelam, the work of Ms Hidayah Amin, as the winner of the 2021 NUS Singapore History Prize. Ms Hidayah’s work was among six which was shortlisted, out of 31 nominated works authored by local and international scholars. The other Jury Panel members are: novelist Dr Meira Chand; economist Dr Lam San Ling; historian Professor Peter Coclanis; and archaeologist Emeritus Professor John Miksic from the Department of Southeast Asian Studies at the NUS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
