Abstract: This thesis studies how Peranakan cultural identity was conceived, the nature of this identity and how it has evolved over the a period of three decades. It examines Baba exhibitions in post-independence Singapore as a lens through which to study the changing value of Peranakan heritage as perceived by the state; the evolving idea of Peranakan cultural identity by Babas and the general public, and how this in turn sheds light on wider cultural policies in Singapore, larger market and global forces on the Singapore museum industry, and the relationship between the Baba community and the state.
