Professors Ma Kiam and Ma Meng: An Exhibition in Celebration of the 90th Anniversary of The School of Chinese

Professors Ma Kiam and Ma Meng: An Exhibition in Celebration of the 90th Anniversary of The School of Chinese

In collaboration with the School of Chinese of The University of Hong Kong and The University of Hong Kong Libraries, the Main Library will present Professors Ma Kiam and Ma Meng: An Exhibition in Celebration of the 90th Anniversary of The School of Chinese Exhibition at the 2nd Floor Atrium/Exhibitions Area of the Main Library from 18 September 2017 to 8 October 2017.

“The School of Chinese of The University of Hong Kong was founded in 1927 by scholars who dedicated years of their lives to cultivate the learning of the Chinese language and to foster cultural exchange between the East and the West.  Through the early Scholars’ immense efforts and commitment to their cause, the School has made important progress in many aspects of teaching and research in the past 90 years and is recognized as an internationally-renowned institution for the teaching and research on Chinese language and culture. 2017 marks the 90th anniversary of the School’s establishment and in honour of two of our distinguished former faculty members, Professor Ma Kiam and Professor Ma Meng, the School has organized an exhibition to celebrate their achievements and to also showcase the School’s proud history and its many contributions to Chinese education in Hong Kong.

Professor Ma Kiam and Professor Ma Meng served as Head of School respectively during the early to mid-twentieth century and their tenures as Head of School are recognized by the academic community to be instrumental to the progress made in Chinese education in Hong Kong and the School’s various achievements.”1

香港大學中文學院九十周年誌慶展覽

香港大學中文學院成立於1927年,以傳承國粹、貫通中西文化為辦學宗旨,歷經幾代學者辛勤開墾耕耘,奠定規模,建立傳統,成為國際上深具影響力之教研機構;九十年間步履相接,薪火承傳,有以成之。今年正值中文學院成立九十周年,為隆重其事,特意舉辦兩位前任系主任馬鑑、馬蒙教授的展覽,穿梭歲月,鈎沈翰墨文牘,意在景仰前人,亦展示香港大學中文學院於香港中文教育的重要貢獻。

馬鑑、馬蒙教授父子,先後出任香港大學中文系主任,兩位的經歷與清末民初的教育發展、香港中文教學的演進、香港大學中文學院今天的成就緊密相連,為學界所稱譽。
