Hamzah Muzaini is a cultural geographer with the Department of Southeast Asian Studies at the National University of Singapore. His current research relates to the overarching agenda of ‘heritage from below’ which looks at the pluralistic – as a well as political – ways in which heritage can be constructed and experienced by non-state actors, particularly as this applies to the empirical contexts of war remembrance, cultural theme parks and transnational (migrant) heritage. He is co-author of Contested Memoryscapes: The Politics of Second World War Commemoration in Singapore (with Brenda Yeoh, 2016) and co-editor of After Heritage: Critical Perspectives of Heritage from Below (with Claudio Minca, 2018). Prior to entering academia, he was heritage consultant and curator of Changi Chapel and Museum, Singapore.
