LKCRF Presentation at National Library of Singapore

I haven’t been posting much because life is short, but you can catch me in June in pixilated person when I share my research findings as part of my Lee Kong Chian Research Fellowship at the National Library of Singapore. As the press for the talk explains:

“From roadside shrines to sacred graves, Singapore once abounded with keramat. As post-independence development spread across the island, many of these sites were destroyed, their stories and history poorly recorded. Using site-specific research methodologies, this research project has analyzed the archival traces of extant and vanished keramat to build an archival catalog with entries for each one. The complete catalog contains close to 1,000 pages of textual, cartographic and photographic records for more than 50 keramat, as well as appendices for special topics such as kubor panjang (long graves), police station shrines and keramat families. The study paves the way for a wide analysis of the keramat phenomenon, revealing ethnohistoric patterns that otherwise remain obscure.

In this sharing session, Dr Gibson will discuss the research methodology he used to build the catalog, and use examples from his research to explain the outcomes of this methodology.”
