'This book is an attempt to translate this new understanding of conjunctions into a dialogue. With Singapore's emergence as one of the leading centers for finance and knowledge production in a truly globalised world, emphasis has increasingly been put on the production and dissemination of culture within the island state... Within this framework, we see Singapore as an interesting case study. It is a laboratory for various approaches to dealing with the challenges of globalisation, as the cultural topographies of Singapore are not only changing, but also constituting themselves before our eyes. We understood this city as a responsive network reflecting this reality that can be harnessed by research and education projects, which is what encouraged us to bring our students to the city, delve into its web, and try to learn from it. For us, seeing eye to eye is much more important than perceived hierarchies, a concept that is also reflected in the design and structure of this book.' - excerpted from the words by the editor
