From Lineage to Transnational Chinese Network
This concluding chapter explores the possible future directions for Chinese overseas communities and the process of the maintenance and change of their identities. In their quest for cultural identity, the Singapore Chinese have looked to their ancestral roots for a sense of historical and cultural continuity. This has given them a renewed sense of “Chineseness”. Singapore Chinese also use their four sets of identities in different social contexts to represent themselves to different groups of people, including those of other nationalities, ethnicities, dialect groups, and lineages.
