Abstract: The paper attempts to study and analyze two methodologies of historical inquiry employed by two thesis proposals in addressing issues of historical representation and identity. Both theses argue that the process of redevelopment that has taken place in Kampung Glam, and the subsequent establishment of the Malay Heritage Centre by state agencies has brought forth a concretization of state constructed imaginings of the Malay ethnicity, that is misaligned with the actual multi-faceted nature of the Malay community in Singapore, and that such prescriptive re-inscriptions are designed to position the Malay ethnic group within the national image and imagination. Identifying the matter in contention, both theses develop a program to counter- propose the existing Heritage Centre in Kampong Glam and in the process of doing so, take to looking at history from two vantage points. By studying and analyzing the two methodologies of historical inquiry employed by these two theses and making references to various conceptions of history by theoreticians, the paper seek to dissect and understand the wider implications of the historical assemblage in the shaping of identities.
