      這本書主要是想分享給兩種讀者,一種是在做遷移研究的人,另一種是本身即為遷移者,也許您可以參考與閱讀本書。作者稱,本書不是完整的回憶錄,而是把在臺灣居住五十年中,聚焦於描繪出在臺灣大學的學術角色,也是把自己人生最寶貴的歲月做個記錄。本書所要呈現的,不是只有關於移民生活成功的一面,其實在此過程也夾雜了挫折與失意,以及適應上的躑躅與徬徨。

      Nora is well respected as a diligent and highly productive scholar, and a very able organizer of academic conferences and international scientific exchange programs. Nora reminds me of my late teacher, Professor Jao Tsung-I, who officially retired at the age of 70 but continued his scholarly research studies until he was close to a hundred years old.

      As my own life continues, my reading of Nora’s “Memoir” both educates me on the unfolding of an academic career across the US and Asia vastly different from my own in England and Australia. We started in very different places and although we lived through the same historical period, we operated in vastly different social, cultural, gender, political contexts.

      在繽紛閃亮的字裡行間,翻山渡海的故事情節中,愈加了解這位學術前輩深受大家敬重的原因。特別是在每個轉折處,感動中不忘問自己,我會用什麼態度?做什麼決定?能像姜老師這樣勇敢與堅韌嗎?

      田野研究及人物訪查是Nora的學術專長,現在她拿這個本領,把自己家族的移民史仔細探究了一番。……這本書讓她好好地訪談了自己,思考在台灣五十年來的人生起伏;這本書是Nora與自己的對話,情真意切。

    Preface

    Nora Chiang/姜蘭虹


     

      To write a memoir on my life in Taiwan for the last five decades, I need the good memories, pictures, letters, and documents which are available, despite migrating three times in my life: from Chungking to Hong Kong, then to the US, and finally Taiwan. Having written ten chapters, I feel that I have completed a project of self-writing, an endeavor that is only possible for a retired person to do, not having the pressure of submitting research proposals year after year in January, apart from full-time teaching and family tending.



      The idea of writing a memoir came up one morning, and I thought to myself: Sooner or later, I shall write a memoir, so why not now? Discussing with several friends in the past few years, I received encouraging comments like the following:



      “From what I hear, you have many interesting stories. Why don’t you write a book on yourself, and call it ‘A Hong Kong Girl in Taiwan.’ ” (Mrs. H, originally a banker from HK, now living in the UK; her son A spent one year in the Geography Department for his gap year)

     

      “Nora, I am so glad that you are doing it, I can help you edit, so is Andrea, who helps her American colleagues with editing English. She can turn in edited works promptly too.” (my sister Amy, a former company librarian in Boston)



      “I feel your enthusiasm in writing this article for your memoir. I would need to sit down to do the same, as I was very lucky to have spent most of the adult years with our father.” (my brother Gar, an attorney in Boston)

     

      My sister Anne writes well in Chinese. She has published several Chinese articles in Merit Times (人間福報), which I have included in my book for the bilingual reader. Counting my three siblings in, I feel empowered and ready to proceed. I realize that I should undertake this “giant project” (in the words of my niece Andrea), while I am still in good health, able to remember where my notes are, and still in touch with my siblings through e-mail and Whatsapp. At the ages of 86, 78, 75 and 71, we are blessed to be alive and well, and we all thank our parents for their sacrifices being first-generation immigrants, their unconditional love towards their children and grandchildren.

     

      “If you need anything further, please do not hesitate to reach out.” (Brian, Ph.D student in geography)

     

      I thank him dearly for helping me with editing Chapters 1 and 10, and this preface. He is a treasure to the department for helping us with English editing, so I have heard.



      Four professors said “YES” to me to write a preface, including Jen-Jia LIN, Associate Dean of College of Science, Joan Chang, Professor in the Department of English at NTNU, and C. F. LEE, Emeritus Professor and Former Vice-President, University of Hong Kong (HKU). LEE went over Chapter 2 at first and sent me a kind message: “If you write a memoir or biography, it would be quite meaningful.” I took his word, and continued with the other chapters with more zeal, making it ten altogether, as I believe that 10 is a good number, suggested by the Chinese phrase “be perfect in every respect” (十全十美).



      “I support your idea of publishing your memoir with us. As you have done two books previously with us, I shall persuade my staff members to help you in the best way I can.” (NTU alumnus Howard Chen, who is several times an award winner of his independent bookstore Tonsan (唐山), and a publisher over the years.)

     

      “……will be delighted to help with your memoir!”, an assurance came from John Lidstone who made very constructive editorial suggestions, after reading Chapter 4, the longest one. At that point, I knew that I am on the right track, and should charge forward. I better hurry up, as it will be my fiftieth year in Taiwan soon. “What is your primary purpose in writing the memoir? Who is your intended audience?” asked John. I will try answer his questions below.
