Singapore and the Region Programme (SRP) will seek to bring intellectual leadership to the issue of national identity and heritage.
The SRP will host one to two Visiting Fellows per year. Under this Programme, historians, art historians, linguists, anthropologists, or archaeologists will conduct original research to examine Singapore’s historical maritime and trade networks within the region, as well as the island’s changing role in different periods of history, in order to help us better appreciate the ways in which the external environment has impacted our nation and its character. The findings from this Programme will be converted, where possible, into resource teaching material for local schools.
