A Symposium of Current Research
6 June 2020
King’s College London
Conversations in Singapore History returns for its fourth run on 6 June 2020 at King’s College London. In line with tradition we seek to establish a space for colleagues to share original research as part of a weekend symposium. Undergraduates and graduates regardless of discipline are especially encouraged to submit papers exploring any facet of Singapore and/or its place in regional and global contexts.
For this year’s edition we encourage submissions that involve genealogical interventions into present-day Singapore based on three categories. By genealogical we refer to the act of tracing how contemporary practices and institutions emerge out of specific struggles and exercises of power, thus making visible the contingency of the present and the openness of the future.
The three categories are:
- Technological progress in Singapore and its implications
- Interventions at the intersection of race, class, and gender
- Culture, civil society, and the state
More information is available on the Call for Submissions Google form
All suggestions and queries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org – we look forward to hearing from you!
