Abstract: When PRC New Migrantsa??enter Singapore, besides coping with their transmigratory experiences of beinga??home anda??away, they also have to contend with the politics of difference. As the PRC migrants develop transnational social fields, they draw on their transnational social capital and networks to negotiate betweena??home anda??host societies, and thus create a home away from home. Resulting from these maneuvers, their diasporic identities were also subject to changes and reaffirmations. With Chinese being the dominant ethnic majority, PRC migrants'a??Chineseness should be an asset in their transmigration to Singapore. However, the Singaporean Chinese were never homogeneous. PRC migrants find that the notion of Chineseness could no longer be taken for granted, as their Chineseness is constantly challenged by their encounters with different Singaporean Chinese. Through careful manipulating and (re)negotiating, sometimes even (re)inventing their Chineseness, they were able to come to terms with their own diasporic identities.
