Book Launch of Who Are You My Country
From the 1930s to 1965, the youth of colonial Singapore discussed and wrote about identity, seeking to enkindle the idea of a nation that did not yet exist. Student publications like The Malayan Undergrad, The New Cauldron and The Malayan Orchard facilitated their dedication and literature became the avenue of our national imagination. 50 years after independence, the young Singaporean writers under 35 respond to these historical works as a reflection of the collective imagination of Singapore.
