Chapter Summary

This chapter reads the development and implementation of the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) as the text through which the association between nation and ethnicity is examined. It argues that the MSC inflects the imagining(s) of Malaysia at two levels. At the first level where the MSC is understood to be the insertion of a new policy into Malaysia?s pre-existent ethnocratic climate, it contends the MSC inflects the nation through its incongruence with prevalent conditions. At the second level, where the MSC is viewed through the position of its Chinese populace, the chapter suggests that the MSC inflects Malaysia through the re-emphasis it lends to issues of transnationalism and belonging for the Malaysian Chinese.

Keywords: Malaysia; Malaysian Chinese; Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC)
