Transformation of Ancestral Veneration Practices and Challenges to Preserving Tangible Heritage of the Singaporean Chinese Community: A Case of Century-Old Kinship-Based Clan Associations
Beyond filial piety, ancestral veneration takes on broader societal functions and is a key intangible cultural heritage of clan associations. Using century-old kinship-based clan associations in Singapore as case studies, we examine changes in such cultural practices over time, identify key contributing factors, as well as highlight challenges and opportunities for the continued transmission of this intangible cultural heritage. Selected manuscripts and artefacts documented during the research will be shown during the talk.

祭祖活动在传承孝道文化的同时也有更广的社会功能,是会馆的非物质文化遗产。讲者将以新加坡百年会馆为例,探讨祭祖仪式的变化、以及分析促使这变化的关键因素。讲座同时讨论会馆在保留祭祖活动时所面对的挑战与契机。最后,讲者将展示田野调查时所发现的珍贵文物。
