国际比较文学协会贺词
 

    作为2004—2007年任期间的国际比较文学协会主席,我谨代表国际比较文学协会对即将举行的这届中国比较文学年会暨国际研讨会表示衷心的祝贺,并对从事比较文学研究的中国学者们表示诚挚的问候。1995年10月,我有幸在北京参加了主题为“文化对话与文化误读”的国际会议。从那时我就知道中国比较文学学会有着非凡的国际会议组织能力,北京大学的比较文学研究学者们工作也非常出色,对此我深表钦佩。当时讨论的中心议题是国际比较文学研究界相当重视的两个问题;来自中国和世界其他国家的两百多名学者参加了会议,他们提交的论文于两年后(即1997年)由马贝尔•李(Mabel Lee)和孟华主持结集出版。
    基于这些成果,我相信即将举行的中国比较文学年会一定会取得巨大成功。我也相信,国际比较文学协会前副主席乐黛云教授一定会继续宣扬比较文学学科在当今世界所发挥的重要作用。比较文学学科历史语境中的多元话语表明:文化之间的差异性有助于人们增进了解,推动自我和他人之间的互动关系。
    我的好朋友乐黛云教授和中国所有的比较文学研究学者再一次为比较文学研究树立好榜样,我衷心地祝贺他们。我非常乐意邀请其他的比较文学研究者前往中国——这个伟大的国家。遗憾的是,我在这此之前已有安排,所以不能参加这次中国比较文学年会。国际比较文学协会前主席杜威•佛克玛教授将代表国际比较文学协会出席这次会议。
预祝大会圆满成功!

GREETINGS FROM ICLA

    As President of ICLA for the term 2004-2007, I’m pleased to send to our Chinese colleagues our best greetings for their next Congress of Comparative Literature. I had the opportunity of being in Beijing in October 1995, for an International Conference on Cultural Dialogue and Cultural Misreading, and I then knew and appreciated the great capacity of organization of the regional Association – ALCC – and the good work done by our colleagues at the University of Peking. At that time, the central subjects were two important questions in the field of Comparative Literary Studies; more than two hundred academics from China and other parts of the world met in Beijing for this International Conference and their papers were published two years after (1997) in a volume organized by Mabel Lee and Meng Hua.
    Based on these good results, I’m sure that the present meeting will be also a great success. I’m sure that Professor Yue Daiyun, former vice-president of ICLA, is going to insist in the important function that the discipline Comparative Literature can have in this moment all around the world. Its’ pluralistic discourse, historically situated, implies that differences can help people know each other much better and understand how to develop the relationship between the self and the other.
    I would like to congratulate my good friend, Professor Yue Daiyun, and all the colleagues from China for giving once more the good example and I would like to invite other comparatists to this great country. Unfortunately, due to previous arrangements, I will not be able to attend the meeting at this time, but Professor Douwe Fokkema, former President of ICLA, can better than anyone represent our Association.
    Have a nice and productive congress.
