Abstract

This paper interrogates the positioning of MLE writers as strangers in the land of their birth by taking a sociology-based (as opposed to an ideology-based or ethnocentric) approach to the study of how Malays and the Malay world are portrayed in MLE novels. This approach is part of a larger research project aimed at developing a new, sociology-based paradigm for MLE studies.
