About the Book: 寻找苏慧廉  (A Way of Finding What’s True) (北京:新星出版社,2013年)

This biography describes the life of William Edward Soothill, a British missionary to China who later became a Sinologist and Professor at Oxford University. Soothill spent the majority of his adult life in China, a country where his story is little known.  Soothill travelled to China in his early 20s and settled in Wenzhou, where his children were born. Over the next 20 years, he built a number of churches, hospitals, and schools in this coastal city. He also learned the local dialect, which allowed him to compile dictionaries and translate the bible. His reputation as a great educator resulted in his appointment as the President of the Imperial University at Shanxi. He then worked in Shanxi for nearly a decade, after which he returned to England and became a Professor of Sinology at Oxford University. While in China, Soothill witnessed the most turbulent time of the nation’s history. His journey illustrates the immense transformation of the country during that period.

Shen Jia started this project to document Soothill’s story while in his hometown of Wenzhou. He traced Soothill’s travels across three continents: Europe, Asia, and America. He spent 6 years immersed in archival research and conducting numerous interviews. Using the method of archaeology of knowledge, Shen’s book reconstructs the vivid story of a brilliant China expert. Shen’s work is both a provocative biography and a scholarly text. Its narrative also reflects the intricate history of modern China.

苏慧廉,英国人、传教士、汉学家、牛津大学教授。他一生最好的时光都在中国度过,他的故事却少有人知。二十岁出头的他,只身漂洋过海来到中国。他的孩子出生在这里,并由此开始了一生与中国的缘分。他在温州定居二十余载,建教会、修医院、建学堂。同时学习温州方言,编撰字典、翻译圣经。由于在教育方面的杰出才能,晚清末年被聘为山西大学堂总教习。晚年返回英国,受聘牛津大学,专研汉学教授。苏慧廉经历中国最动荡的时期,而他的历程,也是那个时代的缩影。

本书作者沈迦从家乡温州出发,沿着传主百年前走过的道路,跨越亚、欧、美三大洲,寻找历史深处的蛛丝马迹。通过爬梳档案史料,结合数十位后人的口述访谈,历时六年,以知识考古学的方式还原了一生都与中国关联的这位“中国通”的生平。这部传记既遵循学术规范,又以一啸百吟的笔触,写出了中国近代史的一咏三叹。

About the Author/Facilitator: 沈迦 (Shen Jia)

Shen Jia, born in Wenzhou, Zhejiang in 1969, took his MA degree at the Zhejiang University and his EMBA degree at the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS). He used to work as a journalist, an editor, and then started his own business. He currently lives in Vancouver, and is focusing his research on the relationship between the missionary movement and modern China. He is the author of Putongren: Jiayitang shoucang zhaji (The Commoners: Notes on the Collections of Jiayitang), Xia Chengtao zhi Xie Yücen shouzha jianshi (Annotation on the Hand-Written Letters Xia Chengtao Sent to Xie Yücen), Xun zhao Su Huilian (A Way of Finding What’s True), and Yitiao kaiwang zhongguo de chuan (A Ship Heading to China). Published in the Mainland China and Taiwan in 2013, A Way of Finding What’s True became a best seller immediately. It was praised as one of “The Best Ten Books” in 2013, and the Phoenix Television made a documentary of the same name according to the content of this book.

沈迦,1969年出生于浙江温州。浙江大学文学硕士、中欧国际工商学院工商管理硕士。曾为记者、编辑,后创业经商。现居温哥华,从事传教士与近代中国关系之研究与写作。著有《普通人——甲乙堂收藏札记》、《夏承焘致谢玉岑手札笺释》、《寻找·苏慧廉》、《一条开往中国的船》等。《寻找·苏慧廉》2013年在台湾、大陆相继出版后一纸风行,当年即获评中国“年度十大好书”,凤凰卫视还据此拍摄了同名记录片。

The Meiji at 150 Project

The 2017-2018 Academic Year sees the 150th anniversary of Japan’s 1868 Meiji Restoration, an epochal political revolution that sparked Japan’s remarkable modernization, dramatic cultural transformation, and rapid emergence onto the global stage.

At UBC, the Asian Library is working together with the Centre for Japanese Research, the Department of History, and the Department of Asian Studies to present a year-long series of events convening scholars of Japan from around North America to interrogate Japan’s position in global history along with the place of the Meiji Restoration in Japanese historical pedagogy. The Meiji at 150 Digital Teaching Resource aims to promote UBC Library’s Japan-related collections held at Rare Books and Special Collections. Please contact the Japanese language librarian, Naoko Kato (naoko.kato@ubc.ca) if interested in finding out more about the library’s Japanese collections.

To learn more about this project as well as the details of the upcoming workshops and lectures, please visit https://meijiat150.arts.ubc.ca/ or email meijiat150@gmail.com.

UBC Day of Learning Event Recap

UBC’s Day of Learning took place on Tuesday, October 10, 2017. The event marked the 75th anniversary of Japanese-Canadian internment and the 5th anniversary of the UBC Honorary Degree Ceremony for the 76 Japanese Canadian students expelled in 1942.

The day-long event was comprised of four sessions, and the Asian Library had the privilege to be a co-organizer for the afternoon workshop entitled “Stories on Organizing Against Injustice.” We had six Japanese-Canadian community members who shared their lived experiences in small group settings. There were approximately 60 participants including UBC students, alumni, faculty members, staff, and community members. The participants commented on how unique this opportunity was, to be able to engage in inter-generational conversations.

The UBC Day of Learning was made possible with the support of different units across UBC and community partners. Check out the video recordings of the other three workshops at the Day of Learning website.

Celebrate DIWALI with the Asian Library

Join the Asian Library to celebrate Diwali (Festival of Lights)!

Wednesday, October 18, 2017
12:00 noon to 1:30 pm
Asian Centre Auditorium, 1871 West Mall

Diwali or Deepavali, which means “a row of lights”, is the most widely celebrated annual Indian festival. It marks the victory of good over evil, and the beginning of the New Year in India. Diwali takes place at the end of October or the first week of November, and is celebrated on Amavasya (darkest night or no moon day). The festival typically lasts from 5 to 7 days, and the first day marks the beginning of the fiscal year. It is enjoyed by the majority of Indians regardless of faith, including Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, and Buddhists. On Diwali, people decorate their houses with candles and colorful lights, and also share their gifts and recite prayers.

Everyone is cordially invited to experience diversity of culture through music, Henna, and delicious refreshments. All Diwali activities are drop-in, free and open to UBC students, staff and faculty.

For more information, please call 604-822-2427 or visit us in person at the Asian Library at UBC Asian Centre.

From Wenzhou to Vancouver, From Yale to Oxford: Journey of Knowledge Archaeology of a Freelance Writer

With speaker SHEN Jia (沈迦)

Date: Wednesday, October 11, 2017
Time: 12:00-1:30 p.m.
Venue: Asian Centre Auditorium, 1871 West Mall
Language: Mandarin

以商品经济闻名遐迩的浙江温州,其老城区里有一座百年历史的基督教堂,但教堂创建者的名字及其作为这座城市现代化奠基人的事迹却被有意无意淹埋在波云诡谲的历史里。童年时曾随祖母去这座教堂礼拜的沈迦,大学读了新闻系,毕业后做过记者、编辑、商人,然后在十余年前移民来到了温哥华。在安静的温哥华,他依托近代史料宏富的UBC亚洲图书馆,从童年的家乡记忆出发,通过爬梳档案、田野调查、口述访谈,历时六年,跨越亚欧美三大洲,以知识考古学的方式还原了这位名叫苏慧廉的英国传教士波澜壮阔的一生,及其与中国近代史一咏三叹的关联。

成书于温哥华的《寻找·苏慧廉》2013年在台湾、大陆相继出版后一纸风行,当年即获评中国“年度十大好书”,凤凰卫视还据此拍摄了同名记录片。

In the old quarter of Wenzhou, a well-known city for its commodity economy in Zhejiang Province, stands a Christian church built about one century ago. However, the name of the builder and his contribution to the city’s modernity were intentionally or unintentionally buried in sudden and perplexing changes of history. Mr. Shen Jia went to this church with his grandmother in his childhood. He majored in Journalism when he was a college student. After graduating, he worked as a journalist, editor, and entrepreneur. He immigrated to Canada and settled down in Vancouver more than ten years ago. Using the abundant collection on modern Chinese history in UBC Asian Library, Shen started writing on his childhood memories in his hometown. His work is based on archival research, fieldwork, interviews, and six years’ of endeavors in Asia, Europe and America. Drawing from the methodology of knowledge archaeology, he brought to life the magnificent story of this British missionary, William Edward Soothill, and his relationship with modern Chinese history.

Written in Vancouver, Seeking Soothill 《寻找·苏慧廉》was published in Taiwan, and then in mainland China in 2013, and became popular immediately. It was praised as one of “the Best Ten Books of the Year” in China and was adapted as a documentary under the same title by Phoenix Satellite Television.

Welcoming AAPS members to the Asian Centre and Asian Library

This summer the Asian Library offered two tours to the members of the Association of Administrative & Professional Staff (AAPS), the professional association for the Management and Professional (M&P) staff group at UBC.

The tours took place on July 6 and August 29 with a total of 30 M&P Staff from 18 departments attended.  Phoebe Chow, Program Services Assistant, first told the story of the Asian Centre building, focusing on its huge, pyramid-shaped roof that was originally made for the Sanyo Pavilion during Expo ’70 in Osaka, Japan. The participants then followed Naoko Kato, Japanese Language Librarian, and Lucia Park, Korean Language Librarian, to explore all three levels of the library. Participants were particularly interested in the Asian language learning materials as well as the collections with traditional Asian bookbinding. Finally, participants toured the outdoor area, including the Pacific Bell tower.

As part of the AAPS Summer Networking Series, these lunch and learns tours provided an exciting opportunity for members to get to know the campus and its resources better. We wish to see more staff visiting the Asian Centre and the Asian Library in the future!

Works by Ilsoo Kyung: Jayeonmi (Natural Beauty)

Date: June 5 – September 20, 2017
Location: Asian Centre (1871 West Mall) (map)
Hours: Same as the Asian Library open hours (see hours)

Come and visit the new exhibit Jayeonmi (Natural Beauty) by local artist Ilsoo Kyung at the Asian Centre foyer.

Ilsoo was born in Korea and immigrated to Canada in 1967. She began to paint in 1998. After retiring from her nursing career in 2002, Ilsoo continued her studies at UBC and received a bachelor’s degree in Art History, Visual Art and Theory, as well as an art teacher’s diploma in 2006. Many of her works are included in private collections in Korea, Australia, the United States and Canada.

Ilsoo is a multimedia artist who has been involved in numerous solo and group exhibitions. Her works involves personal identity and expression, as well as themes within the context of Korea and Canada. In recent work she has been addressing the question of cultural identity and in this process a new synthesis is emerging in her own individual disciplines, which include painting, sculpture, printmaking, video and digital imagery, performance art and installation works.

Ilsoo’s works are grounded in the natural world, but she looks beyond the scenic to search for symbols and meaning in all that she encounters. Her style is representational, with special attention to colour, texture and form. Ilsoo has been featured in a number of media, including Senior Living Magazine, CHEK TV and YouTube.

Preserving Vancouver’s Historical Chinese Newspaper

Since September 2016, Anne Lama, Conservator of UBC Library, has been leading a project to rehouse and preserve two Asian-language newspapers, Chinese Times 大漢公報 (1914-1992) and Rodong Sinmun 로동신문 (1967-1975).

The preservation project began with the 220-volume of Chinese Times, which were originally stored in boxes, or bound in fascicles or wrapped in kraft paper as bundles.  Some older issues are very fragile and pages are highly brittle.  In the past eight months, UBC iSchool students Yanzhu Duan and Sarah Giesbrecht worked in the Asian Library once a week to preserve the newspapers by removing the dust, wrapping the papers with permanent buffer papers, and replacing the old boxes with newer and larger cases.  At the same time they compiled an inventory list and barcoded the boxes.  Item records are created after the newspapers arrived in the Rare Books and Special Collections.

Chinese Times was first published in 1907 as Chinese English Daily News 華英日報.  It was renamed as Chinese Daily News 大漢日報 in 1910 and Chinese Times 大漢公報 in 1915 under the management of Chinese Freemasons. Published daily (except Sunday and holidays) until October 1992, Chinese Times is the longest-running Chinese-language newspaper in Canada which provides valuable resources for researchers in Chinese Canadian studies.  Asian Library received these original copies as donation from the publisher in November 1971.

In addition to the printed copies, Asian Library also holds the Chinese Times in microfilm format.  In 2007, Simon Fraser University digitized the newspapers under the Multicultural Canada digitization project.  The online version is now searchable and can be accessed at http://chinesetimes.lib.sfu.ca/.

Traces of Words: Asian Materials from the UBC Library Collections

Date: May 1 – 31, 2017
Location: UBC Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, Level 2 Foyer (1961 East Mall) (map)
Hours: same as the IKBLC building hours (see hours)

This exhibition honours the special significance that written forms hold across the many unique cultures of Asia – a vast geographical area boasting an enormous diversity of languages and writing systems.

Each case features rare texts and diverse forms of bookmaking that highlight the prominent role of writing and calligraphy found across Asia. Encompassing Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Farsi, Tibetan, Sanskrit, Prakrit, and Gujarati scripts, the works invite you to explore a range of cultural or sacred practices that find expression in the written word. These works provide a glimpse of the ingenious ways in which Asian writers have blurred the boundaries between the textual and the visual realms, creatively deploying script to communicate deeper layers of meaning that go beyond words themselves. All of the extraordinary texts on display belong to the collections of the UBC’s Asian Library and Rare Books and Special Collections.

This satellite exhibit is co-curated by April Liu (Mellon Postdoctoral Curatorial Fellow, Asia, MOA) and Fuyubi Nakamura (MOA Curator, Asia), in collaboration with the UBC’s Asian Library and UBC Rare Books and Special Collections. It is held in conjunction with Traces of Words: Art and Calligraphy from Asia, a larger exhibit on view at the Museum of Anthropology, from May 11 to October 9, 2017.

Double Exposure: Symposium and Exhibit Recap

Jill Robinson

UBC Asian Library and Rare Books and Special Collections successfully hosted a symposium to showcase the recently acquired John Cooper Robinson collection; a collection of photographs that were taken by a Canadian missionary who resided in Japan during the late 19th to early 20th century.

The event attracted 40 participants on March 24, and was held in the Lillooet Room at Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. Jill Robinson, the great-granddaughter of John Cooper Robinson (who was a Canadian missionary in Japan who took the photographs) gave the opening speech to provide a personal account of how the collection ended up at UBC. During the coffee break, participants were guided down to RBSC to take a look at the actual photographs, glass lantern slides, postcards, and glass negatives from the collection. The lectures and discussions during the symposium were led by Art Historians and Historians specializing in Japanese photography and the Christian missionary movements. These discussions helped the participants appreciate how these photographs can potentially be used for research and teaching.

In conjunction with the symposium, there is an exhibit at RBSC and Asian Centre going on until the end of May. Click here for more information.

Location: Asian Centre (1871 West Mall) (map) & Rare Books and Special Collections (1961 East Mall) (map)

John Cooper Robinson was an Anglican missionary who lived and worked in Japan in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. The Cooper Robinson collection consisting of over 4,600 photographic prints, negatives, glass lantern slides, and postcards is one of the most valuable photographic records of this era.

The exhibition on display at Rare Books and Special Collections was curated by Professor Allen Hockley and Naoko Kato. The exhibit highlights four major themes: Robinson and the Economies of Japanese Photography, Robinson and the M.S.C.C. Mission in Japan, Robinson and Japanese Religions, and Robinson’s Photographic Practices. This exhibit features original photographs as well as glass lantern slides and glass negatives that were used by Robinson.

The exhibit display at the Asian Center features a selection from “The Making of History and Artifacts (1888-1926): The Photographs of John Cooper Robinson from Meiji-Taisho Japan” exhibit, curated by Robert Bean with an introduction by Bill Sewell.

Check out the John Cooper Robinson Collection Finding Aid to learn more about this extensive photo collection.
