A panel of speakers from different fields who have addressed the Singapore Girl in their research, will share their perspectives and readings of her.
Academic Dr. Simon Obendorf will speak from a perspective of gender politics, and how the Singapore Girl has been shaped according to the demands of the state; author Koh Buck Song will reflect on the value of the Singapore Girl as an ambassador for brand Singapore; and artist John Clang will speak about her from the angle of nostalgia, and how she anchors us to a sense of national identity.
