Sacred cows, crashing boars and the NIMBYs : ethno-religious minorities and the politics of online representation in Malaysia
Leong, Susan (2011) Sacred cows, crashing boars and the NIMBYs : ethno-religious minorities and the politics of online representation in Malaysia. Critical Asian Studies. (In Press)
Starting with the incident now known as the Cow’s Head Protest, I trace and unpack the events, techniques, and conditions surrounding the representation of the Indian community in Malaysia. I suggest in this article that the Malaysian Indians’ struggle to correct the dominant reading of their community as an impoverished and humbled underclass is a disruption of the dominant cultural order in Malaysia. It is also among the key events to have has set in motion a set of dynamics introduced by new media into the politics of ethno-communal representation in Malaysia. It is my contention that this is a situation that requires urgent examination and I attempt here to outline the problematics of the task.
Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
