“Creative Nanyang: Text, Media, and Image in Singapore” is Dr. I Lo-fen’s second book on the analysis of Singapore’s literature, history, and art after “Gorgeous Nanyang: Arts, Advertisements, Crossover Singapore “. The first book is honored to receive publication funding from the NAC. Published in 2016, it soon appeared on the bestseller list of Singapore bookstores, and was selected as one of the best books in Lianhe Zaobao, the first edition is almost sold out.


Some of the material information and research methodology pointed out in the book not only guided my students in identifying the direction of their academic research, but also inspired more fellow researchers globally to get to know Singapore from a new perspective.

Research on Singapore in the past was limited by incomplete historical data or difficult inquiries, making it unfavorable for execution. In recent years, public and private institutions have successively compiled public and digital historical materials, which greatly facilitated researchers’ work.

However, with the massive amount of easily accessible materials, appropriate research methodology is essential in addressing the problem of how to understand Singapore. Based on years of experience in studying the intertextuality and cross-media of text and images, I proposed the term “Text and Image Studies” in 2014. It integrates disciplines such as literature, art, psychology, sociology, and cognitive science, and is especially suitable for discussing multimedia or cross-media cultural production that did not receive much attention in academia in the past, such as the publication, advertisements, colophons, movies, etc., involved in this book.


The scope of this book with seven chapters covers the end of the 19th century to 2019, through Singapore’s opening as a port and the establishment as an independent nation, to the celebration of the Golden Jubilee and the 100th anniversary of China’s May Fourth Movement, much expansive than the first book.


To summarize, the purpose of this book lies in the word “creative”. It is generally believed that the culture of Singapore is barren, and most of it relies on foreign inputs. In fact, if we dive deep into historical and cultural heritage, meaningful resources exist beyond the Singapore Botanic Gardens and hawker culture listed in the UNESCO, though much forgotten and neglected.
