Overview

The Politics of Landscapes in Singapore: Constructions of "Nation" by Brenda Yeoh, Lily Kong

Kong and Yeoh (both: geography, National U. of Singapore) argue that "particular ideological constructions of the 'nation' are made to appear natural when concretized in the landscape." They explore this process of the construction of 'nation' and 'identity' as it is demonstrated by the case of Singapore and its postcolonial national project, particularly with regard to places of worship and final repose, housing and streets, historic areas and icons, and performance places.
