National Identity in Singapore's Post-War Chinese Novels 战后新马华文小说的发展

TALK

 

Fresh off the press by Singaporean writer Lee Chuan Low, 《战后新马华文小说的发展》explores the tumultuous post-war years of 1945 - 1965 -- a period of recovery and reconciliation, which saw the emergence of a rich body of novels by Chinese settlers. These novels provide insights into the growing sense of national identity and consciousness within the community in the aftermath of oppression by the Japanese fascists and British colonial masters. In this session based on the book and moderated by Prof Tan Eng Chow, panelists Lee Chuan Low and Li Kang will discuss the themes, unique stylistic and stages of development within this genre and shed light on its contemporary relevance.

Conducted in Mandarin.
