今年是張愛玲誕辰百年,香港大學(港大)比較文學系、文學院及香港大學美術博物館將合辦「百年愛玲,人文港大」張愛玲百年誕辰紀念文獻展。


「百年愛玲,人文港大」張愛玲百年誕辰紀念文獻展今天(9月28日)在香港大學美術博物館的網頁上線 (https://www.virtual.umag.hku.hk/eileenchang100)。

張愛玲 (1920-1995) 是港大文學院一位赫赫有名的校友。她於1939年8月港大開學前夕到達香港,1942年5月離開香港回到上海。港戰爆發的1941年12月學校停擺,接下來五個月裡的親身經歷對她有著「切身的、劇烈的影響」(〈燼餘錄〉)。在港大的兩年多裡,她修的課程有英文、歷史、中文 (中國文學及翻譯)、邏輯和心理學,其中英文和歷史的成績勝出其他科目。她是不缺課的學生,考勤幾乎完美。學籍紀錄上的證件照裡,她穿著深色旗袍和深色針織外衣,戴著圓圓的眼鏡片,含著微笑,是即將從上海聖瑪利亞女中畢業的高中生模樣 (圖1)。

黃心村教授是這次文獻展的策展人,她是港大比較文學系教授、系主任。黃教授發掘、梳理和融合各項零散的文字和影像在一起,以原始檔案中張愛玲及其師友的資料文獻來全面呈現張愛玲的的港大生活以及與文學院的因緣。

「百年愛玲,人文港大」展出的資料大多是首次面世。這些珍貴的文件與圖片來自香港大學檔案館和其他公眾及私人藏品。是次線上展覽提供的資料將幫助更多的研究者重新定義張愛玲在現代中文文學和世界文學中的位置。「作為張愛玲的母校和她文學創作道路的起步點,港大及文學院有責任協力保存她的珍貴文獻。這個線上展覽只是一個開始,我們的梳理和研究還將繼續。在外界條件允許的時候,我們會在馮平山圖書館舉辦一個更全面的文獻展,以繼續展示張愛玲為我們留下的寶貴資產。」黃教授說。

策展人黃心村是香港大學文學院比較文學系教授、系主任。教學和研究涉及文學、文化理論和視覺文化。她研究張愛玲的中文論著包括《亂世書寫:張愛玲與淪陷時期上海文學及通俗文化》(2010)。

Eileen Chang at the University of Hong Kong:
An online presentation of images and documents from the archives

Department of Comparative Literature, Faculty of Arts and the University Museum and Art Gallery at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) jointly present -- "Eileen Chang at the University of Hong Kong: An online presentation of images and documents from the archives" on the occasion of the centennial celebration of Chang's birth this year.

This online exhibition has been launched today (September 28) on the website of the University Museum and Art Gallery at: https://www.virtual.umag.hku.hk/eileenchang100*

Eileen Chang (1920-1995) was one of the most eminent alumni of HKU Faculty of Arts. She arrived at HKU in August 1939 and left without completing her degree in May 1942 during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong, when classes had been interrupted by the war since December 1941. Her wartime experience had lasting impact on her, indeed as she wrote in "From the Ashes," that it "cut too close to the bone, affecting me in an altogether drastic fashion." The courses she took included English, History, Chinese (Literature & Translation), Logic, and Psychology, and she scored better in English and History than in the others. Her class attendance was near perfect, in stark contrast to her meagre participation in extracurricular activities. In the photograph on her student registration, she wears a dark cheongsam and a dark cardigan, round glasses, and a hesitant smile, pretty much still a high school girl from St. Mary's Hall in Shanghai (Image 1).

Curated and introduced by Professor Nicole Huang, Chairperson of the Department of Comparative Literature in the Faculty of Arts, this online exhibition pieces together a narrative that highlights the beginning of an extraordinary literary career. We celebrate Chang's connection with HKU as an important chapter in the history of both the Faculty of Arts and the larger university community.

Drawing from previously unseen material from the HKU Archives and other public and private collections, this exhibition redefines Chang's solitary experiment as an important chapter in our collective knowledge of global Chinese and global English. "As Chang's alma mater and a starting point of her literary journey, HKU and the Faculty of Arts have a responsibility to help preserve her legacy. The narrative that emerges from these images and documents in this online presentation is only the beginning. When public events are permitted again on campus, we will unveil a physical exhibition at the historic Fung Ping Shan Library with a larger collection of images and documents. Our work will continue and the legacy of Eileen Chang lives on", said Professor Huang.

Professor Nicole Huang is the Chairperson of the Department of Comparative Literature, Faculty of Arts at the University of Hong Kong. She authored a book on Eileen Chang's wartime writing titled Women, War, Domesticity: Shanghai Literature and Popular Culture of the 1940s (2005) and co-edited a collection of essays by Eileen Chang called Written on Water (2005).
