  • HistoriaSG Public Lecture Series 2017: Lecture VII (Building Memories: People, Architecture, Independence)

    Two Men

    From 1955 to the mid-1970s, Singapore underwent a significant phase in physical development. Not only were infrastructure works such as housing and downtown improvements started, several public buildings of national importance were also planned and constructed. These include the National Library (1960), the National Theatre (1963), the Singapore Conference Hall and Trade Union House (1965), and the National Stadium (1973). These public structures enabled the advancement of the population beyond the concerns for just bread and butter issues to embrace modern times and practices. They also served as physical interfaces for Singaporeans to understand and interact with peoples from the region and the world at large. This talk discusses the contexts of the four buildings as well as the architecture for a new era.

  • HistoriaSG Public Lecture Series 2017: Lecture VI (Owning History? Memory and the Fall of Singapore during World War Two)

    Two Men

    The study of history was never monopolised by historians. The state, society, an array of groups and organisations, families and individuals have all “looked back” and remembered the past. From being a rather belittled source for the study of history, “memory” has since become a major subject of historical enquiry. But the notion remains elusive, complicated by several overlapping formulations – collective memory, social memory, public memory, historical memory, and cultural memory. How do we “remember”? What does this say about how we study history, and who “owns” it?

  • HistoriaSG Public Lecture Series 2017: Lecture V (Religions in Singapore: A Historical Overview)

    Two Men

    Singapore’s present-day multi-religious environment has two hundred years of history behind it. Each of the various religious traditions in the city-state has its own story and its own place in Singapore’s historical narrative. This talk will give an overview of history of religion in Singapore, looking at the five largest groups – Islam, Buddhism, Daoism, Hinduism and Christianity – and the major landmarks in their growth here. Of particular interest is how several of the traditions have grown and expanded beyond the particular ethnic groups that first introduced them to Singapore.
