Abstract: Through examining how hua ren in Singapore and Taiwan imagine their cultural identities via ancestor memorialisation practices, this thesis aims to locate a theoretical framework that could concretise the abstract notion of cultural identity. I argue that a material-based cultural landscape provides an analytically more helpful framework than a shapeless and abstract notion of cultural identities based on intangible ?values?.
