Upcoming lecture on “Intercultural Encounters in Singapore” in April

SAA2016Lecture_1_small

Cultural diversity has long been a hallmark of Singapore society. We boast about being a bustling global city with a multiracial and multireligious society.

But just how deep is our cultural diversity? To what extent do our different groups and cultures understand and accommodate each other? Do our daily intercultural encounters lessen or harden social prejudices?

To explore on the above topic, Singapore Advocacy Award (SAA) will be organising a lecture to discuss on the topic of, “Intercultural Encounters in Singapore”.

SAA has invited Associate Professor, Daniel PS Goh, Department of Sociology, NUS, Deputy Head of Department and Convenor of the Cultural Studies Programme, as our guest speaker. Along with him, Ms Sangeetha Thanapal and Mr Alfian Saat will join as panelists in the discussion.

Along with the lecture, we have a poetry session by local poets on the same topic.

So watch out for SAA’s lecture session on 16 April 2016, 1.30pm at the Projector.

More details on how to purchase the tickets for the event coming soon!
