Abstract: Abstract This study uses the corpus of writings and range of activities of a Nanyang University scholar as the lens to refract the transfiguration of the Chinese-educated intelligentsia in Singapore over five decades of English-educated PAP hegemony. It is a weaving of biography and representation, bringing to the forefront Lee Guan Kin’s educational experience and public intellectual activism, and pairing these with her scholarly analysis of them. Her insider’s perspective would allow for a greater appreciation of the dilemma, anguish, aspirations and intra-dynamics of this segment of the Chinese community amidst the larger national environment of declining Chinese language competency. Keywords: Chinese language and culture, education, intellectuals, Nanyang University (Nantah), Xiamen Univerity, Lee Guan Kin, Lim Boon Keng, Lee Kuan Yew, People’s Action Party (PAP), Singapore
