Lights in Time: The S.S. Bokhara & The Fisher Island Lighthouse (English)

On the 8th of October 1892, the Peninsula & Oriental Steam Navigation Company's S.S. Bokhara left Shanghai for Hong Kong. Two days later, after a battle with an ill-fated typhoon, she sank beneath the Penghu Islands within minutes of hitting the reefs along the isle. What happened next were events leading to a rare moment of humanity and solidarity between East and West relations, as the Bokhara survivors returned to Hong Kong safely with the assistance from the Fisher Island Lighthouse.

Run Run Shaw Library's Lighthouse Heritage Research Connections (LHRC) programme illustrates the events that took place before and after the Bokhara's wreck in 1892. Join City University of Hong Kong's LHRC team in the epic story of the search for the missing steamship and its aftermath in Hong Kong and the Penghu Islands.

天后廟船 – 三角天后平安堂
Triangular Island Goddess of Tin Hau Shrine of Peace

Since the Song Dynasty, fishermen from Chaozhou, Shantou and Hakka has long worshipped the Chinese Goddess of the Sea, Tin Hau. As Hong Kong was once a fishing village, it forms a huge part of our's heritage. In 2009, UNESCO included the tradition in its Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. It is evident that Tin Hau plays not only a vital role in fishermen's lives but also Hong Kong's cultural diversity.
Fishermen believe Tin Hau can ensure them a safe and smooth journey. She passed away while trying to save her father and brother from a sinking boat. Fishermen believed she became a goddess and since then many had reported seeing Tin Hau appearing to sailors in danger and leading them to safety. Therefore, they always worship Tin Hau before sail. The boat is a popular temple of choice on which a lot of fishermen pray for safety and peace for their families.
The temple will "go ashore". The distinctive boat will then retire and become a symbol of our maritime history and memories.

自宋代以來,潮州,汕頭和客家的漁民一直崇拜女海神-天后。由於香港曾經是一個漁村,天后是香港傳統文化的重要組成部分。 2009年,聯合國教科文組織將天后傳統納入其人類非物質文化遺產代表名錄。明顯地,天后不單止是漁民的生活中不可或缺的一環,也在香港的文化多樣性中發揮著重要作用。
漁民們相信天后可以確保他們出海安全順利。相傳她因為試圖拯救在暴風雨浸船上的父親和哥哥時去世,漁民們相信她變成了一名女神。自此,許多人報告看到天后在漁民遇險時出現,並將他們帶到安全地方。因此,漁民總是在航行前崇拜天后。這艘廟船是一所受歡迎的寺廟,許多漁民都會到前去為他們的家人祈求安全與平安。
這座寺廟將會「上岸」,代表著這艘獨特的船快將退役,成為海事歷史和記憶。

Shanxi Winter Service Learning Trip January 2020

Shanxi Winter Service Learning Trip 2020

Run Run Shaw Library's programme, Wooden Pagoda Heritage Research Connections (WPHRC), conducted an eight-day fieldwork study trip to Shanxi Province. This year's student participants were from the City University of Hong Kong's Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Department of Chinese and History and Department of Biomedical Engineering. Students focusing on different academic research share their topics which demonstrate interdisciplinary cultivation towards cultural heritage awareness relating to Chinese wooden architecture, Ming Dynasty plaques, ancient urban planning models and Buddhism history across the region. Students were able to utilise new media technologies such as 3D scanning and aerial photography to document their findings. WPHRC plans to showcase student research output and discoveries from this year's service learning trip to Shanxi Province through student-collaborated fieldwork documentation.

West Meets East: 'The Wealth of Nations' Review by Professor Pei-Kai Cheng
東西薈萃:鄭培凱教授談《斯密亞丹—原富》(愛丁堡大學,主圖書館)
譯:王淑婷

Date: 4 September 2019
Location: Adam Smith's Library, University of Edinburgh

In July 2005, Run Run Shaw Library was grateful to receive a donation from Dr. T L Sun, Former Council Member of City University of Hong Kong. Among the 386 titles and over 1,600 volumes of classics, history, poetry and other literary works, Adam Smith’s ‘The Wealth of Nations’ book (1901) was one of the literatures given to City University of Hong Kong’s library. ‘The Wealth of Nations’ Chinese edition was translated by Mr. Yan Fu, a Chinese scholar and translator most famous for introducing western ideas such as Charles Darwin’s ‘natural selection’ theory.

Poet, calligrapher and scholar Professor Pei-Kai Cheng (Chairman, Hong Kong SAR Intangible Cultural Heritage Committee) visited the University of Edinburgh’s Main University Library to introduce Adam Smith’s ‘The Wealth of Nations’ book that had been translated into Chinese. Professor Cheng emphasises the significance of Adam Smith’s literature in today’s world and its influence into Asia. The translated classic is an example of how Western literature has integrated into Hong Kong’s academic sectors which will connect the economic understandings of the West to the East. Still preserved at City University of Hong Kong’s Run Run Shaw Library, students and staff are able to experience the original works of Adam Smith, setting an example of knowledge transfer from the 18th century.

During the visit to the University of Edinburgh, Professor Cheng (on behalf of Jigu Institute) hosted the ‘Calligraphy Workshop II’ with university’s School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC). Live calligraphy demonstrations from Professor Chung-in Lee (Seoul National University) introduced students and staff from the University of Edinburgh to Chinese calligraphy and also Ancient Classics of Asia which hold the philosophical, historical and cultural knowledge reflected upon today’s world. Professor Cheng gave a live demonstration himself on Kun Qu Opera, one of the oldest extant forms of Chinese opera dominating Chinese theatre from the 16th to the 18th centuries. This cross-cultural exchange of both Western literature and Eastern art was able to enhance mutual understanding between different civilizations of the 21st century.

2005年7月,邵逸夫圖書館有幸收到,來自香港城市大學前校董會成員孫大倫博士捐贈的一批古籍線裝書作永久收藏。該批贈書總計有386種,超過1600多冊經史文獻、詩歌及其他文學作品,當中包括《斯密亞丹—原富》(1901年版本)。《斯密亞丹—原富》中文版由中國學者、翻譯家嚴復翻譯,他將達爾文(Charles Darwin)“自然選擇”理論等西方思想引入中國,而為後世稱道。

詩人、書法家、學者鄭培凱教授(香港特別行政區非物質文化遺產委員會主席)訪問愛丁堡大學主圖書館,並介紹中文譯本的《斯密亞丹—原富》。鄭教授強調了亞當·斯密的文學著作在當今世界的重要性及其對亞洲的影響。經典著作的翻譯彰顯西方文學與香港學術界融合的過程,同時為東西方經濟往來搭建溝通的橋梁。《斯密亞丹—原富》現仍收藏於香港城市大學邵逸夫圖書館,可供學生及教職員閱覽,親身體會18世紀西學東漸的典例。

在訪問愛丁堡大學期間,鄭教授(代表集古學社)與愛丁堡大學文學、語言和文化學院(LLC)聯合舉辦了“書法工作坊II”。李正仁教授(首爾國立大學)的現場書法展示,讓愛丁堡大學的學生和教職員一窺中國書法之氣韻,遍覽富含當代哲學、歷史和文化知識的亞洲古籍之精深。鄭教授則親自對昆曲進行了現場演示。昆曲是中國現存最古老的戲曲形式之一,也是綻放於16-18世紀中國的文化異卉。東西方文學藝術薈萃,跨文化火花之碰撞將增進21世紀不同文明的相互理解與交融。
