Archives Invites – Timothy P. Barnard Archival Creatures: Finding Animals in the Singaporean Past

Community histories unfold in this series that traces Singapore’s social past with help from the archives.

Singapore was once home to not only various human communities drawn to the imperial port, but also their animals. Join Associate Professor Timothy Barnard as he takes us on a journey of how hidden sources can help illuminate the stories of imperial creatures, ranging from dogs and monkeys to cattle and horses, that were part and parcel of colonial Singapore. In the process, not only will we learn more about how the past is documented, but also how unique perspectives can help us better understand Singapore and its history.
