Abstract:

This paper traces the symbolic significance of Singapore's policy of "multiracialism" by bringing it in connection with the city-state's post-colonial problematic of national identity. Against the currently dominant, nativist rhetoric which aims to construct Singapore as an authentically "Asian" nation diametrically opposed to its "Western" counterparts, this paper stresses the necessary and inevitable hybridity of Singaporean identity.
