UPCWGS Book Talk “Little Drops: Cherished Children of Singapore’s Past”

May 23 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

UPCWGS would like to invite you to a book talk on “Little Drops: Cherished Children of Singapore’s Past” by Dr. Theresa Devasahayam!

Dr. Devasahayam, a family and gender anthropologist, is the author of several books of which the latest deals with child adoption in Malaya from the 1930s to the early 1970s. Titled “Little Drops: Cherished Children of Singapore’s Past,” the book contains the stories of 15 adoptees in Singapore. It is a compilation of biographies based on historical fact about the pain of separation and the lure of love, and how these themes constantly collide.

The Center is honored to host this book talk on the Historical Biographies of Cross-Cultural Adoptees by Dr. Devasahayam, together with other renowned special guests. This will take place on 23 May 2024, 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM at UPCWGS Conference Room, UP Diliman.
