Culture and Society: Identity in Singapore/ AN


The Singapore Perspectives Conference is organised annually by the Institute of Policy Studies, with this year’s theme focusing on the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The participants of this segment highlighted issues relating to multiculturalism, identities and social cohesion in Singapore today.

Referring to the required course readings as well as the above forum proceedings, examine post-Independence Singapore’s approach to national identity formation and expression of (national) identity, especially pertaining to multiracialism/multiculturalism. Include in your discussion possible implications for social cohesion in current times.
For this assignment, you should demonstrate a basic understanding of the arguments put forth in Study Unit 2 and its readings; you may also derive insights from other relevant chapters. Additional research, only if needed, can be done from both academic and news databases in the U library’s e-resources (e.g., JSTOR, Sage Sociology collection, SOCIndex for academic resources; Factiva for news).

Using the course readings, the assignment requires you to develop a critical understanding of, and also question how Singapore society (particularly race and ethnicity) and identity have been managed after Independence. In writing your essay, you must use and engage with your course readings, while briefly considering current developments in Singapore. Note that the above forum is meant to provide useful context of current issues for your essay, but you are not expected to scrutinise the issues discussed there in detail, as the forum video is not the focus of this assignment.

In your answer, you should consider (but are not limited to) some of the following ideas:
The sociological concepts ‘culture’, ‘race’ and ‘ethnicity’ versus how these have generally been used and handled in Singapore, according to Benjamin (1976)
Singapore’s specific brand and management of ‘multiracialism’

Singapore’s history as a plural society
‘Race’, ‘ethnicity’, ‘religion’ and ‘class’ as components of Singapore society

It is essential that you utilise and engage with the content and arguments from the course materials for your assignment, and to demonstrate sound sociological thinking.
