Archives Invites: Dr William Gibson – Keramat in Singapore

Drawing on his recent Lee Kong Chian Research Fellowship study of keramat (sacred shrines) in Singapore, Dr William L. Gibson discusses the site-specific methodology he deployed in his research. He will share how layering different resources such as archival texts, site visits, oral histories, property records, and digitally manipulated maps and photographs, create new insights into the history of keramat sites in Singapore. He will also highlight examples from both well-known and obscure keramat sites.
