This was an interview with Professor Kenneth Dean, who will take over as Head of the Department of Chinese Studies at the NUS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences from January 2015. Prof Dean will be the first non-Chinese to hold this position. He noted that the Department’s strength lies in its excellent academic tradition and coverage on a wide range of research areas and hopes to build on this strength to further boost research in more large-scale studies on Chinese religions and culture in Singapore and Southeast Asia.
