PANEL: Fictionalising the Japanese Occupation

  • The Arts House 1 Old Parliament Lane Singapore, 179429 Singapore (map)

How does fiction shape the construction of historical narratives and what is the role that it plays in the ways in which history is understood (or misunderstood) by readers? What can alternative narratives and stories tell us about the way history is experienced by individuals in contrast to the collective consciousness?

Join The Arts House for this special panel discussion with Meira Chand, Warren Kalasegaran and Cheah Sinnan discuss these issues, in relation to their own works of fiction that explore multiple facets of the Japanese Occupation of Singapore. This session is moderated by Phan Ming Yen.
