Animals were an important part of the imperial landscape of Singapore. They were cultivated, raised, cherished and employed everywhere, flourishing due to their ability to fit within the expanding imperial system. The vast majority could be roughly classified as creatures that provided transportation, labor and food, while others represented the imperial gaze colonizing a natural landscape. As part of this process, animals were depicted in a variety of media from paintings to photographs to stories, acting as metaphors for imperial control as well as perceptions of Singapore and its place in the tropics. This talk by Dr Timothy P. Barnard (Associate Professor, Department of History, NUS) will provide a discussion of how animals fit into colonial society, a presence that is often overlooked.
Following this lecture, join Dr Kelvin Lawrence for the second lecture of this programme: “Time to Turn on the Light? Sickness, Violence and Fear in Historicising Early Colonial Singapore.”
Long-time colleagues and peers, Dr Barnard and Dr Lawrence, will be sharing their perspectives on each other’s research and taking questions on their respective presentations at the end of both lectures.
Dick Lee needs no introduction, as one of Singapore’s most well-known leading lights in the arts scene. In this concert, BHSO and TJC will team up with the singer-songwriter-director in a celebration of the 30th anniversary of “The Mad Chinaman”, the iconic sophomore album that catapulted him into prominence in Singapore and beyond.
“The Mad Chinaman” is a seminal work, one of the first pop albums exploring what it means to have a multicultural identity as a Singaporean. 30 years on, it remains relevant and its themes continue to resonate with Singaporeans. Familiar favourites to be performed at the concert include “Windchime Song” and “The Centre of Asia”, which will feature The Joy Chorale.
This collaborative concert promises to be a fun and engaging trip down memory lane, and at the same time a musical exploration of how our Singapore national identity has evolved over the years.
Dick Lee’s The Mad Chinaman 30th Anniversary Concert
7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
