 Exhibition

(Online exhibition) Eileen Chang at the University of Hong Kong:
An Online Presentation of Images and Documents from the Archives


Eileen Chang (1920-1995) was one of the most famous female writers in modern China and also a well-known alumnus of the Faculty of Arts, the University of Hong Kong. Eileen was born in Shanghai in 1920. She was the great grand-daughter of the Qing dynasty official Hongzhang Li. Her mother was a descendent of Yisheng Huang, the Admiral of the Yangtze River Navy. Her step-mother was the daughter of Baoqi Sun, the Prime Minister of the Beiyang Government. After graduating from the St. Mary’s Hall in Shanghai, she came to Hong Kong on her own and studied English literature in the University of Hong Kong. She left Hong Kong and returned to Shanghai in 1942 due to the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong.

The wartime experience had a lasting impact on her. Her writing “From the Ashes” was based on the wartime Hong Kong describing personal struggles encountered during the time. Her time spent in Hong Kong and memories about Shanghai spawned some of her famous writings such as “Love in a Fallen City”, “The Rouge of the North”, “Red Rose White Rose”, “The Withering Flower” and “The Book of Change”.
 
On this centennial celebration of Eileen’s birth, the University of Hong Kong, Eileen’s alma mater, has unveiled the “Eileen Chang at the University of Hong Kong: An Online Presentation of Images and Documents from the Archives” exhibition.
