Among the areas explored are: presuppositions of national identity in narrative, ethnic Chinese Malaysian poetry, diaspora poetry of Lin Xingqian (b. 1963), Muslim teen fiction, Malaysia's multimedia corridor, ideological and identity fantasies in British Malaysia; a racial identity crisis of 2001, aspects of culture as race in fiction and memory, and ethnic presentation of lovers in the fiction of Ooi Yang-May.
