This collection of essays is the culmination of a symposium on the representation of Malays and Malay culture in Singaporean and Malaysian literature in English held in Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM). The symposium, with the theme 'Reading the Malay World through Singaporean and Malaysian Texts in English' brought together experts from the fields of literature, language and linguistics to spotlight the ways in which Malays and Malay culture are captured in the literary imagination of Singaporean and Malaysian writers writing in English. The symposium highlighted how Malays and Malay culture are imagined and promoted through literature, and also explored Malayness from linguistic and cultural perspectives.

Issues of concern addressed here include the construction of the Malays in Singaporean and Malaysian literature in English within orientalist or colonialist discourses of the East, the influence of English on the ways that Malays and Malay culture are represented, how Malay identity is defined, and the positioning of the Malays in literary imaginations and social realities.
