Yap Koon Chan
Arts
(B.A. / Class of 1959)

Singapore’s Doyen and Champion of Chinese Literature 

For his steadfast and trailblazing achievements in the development and promotion of Chinese literature in Southeast Asia, and for putting this region on the map of the Chinese literary world, Nanyang Technological University honours Mr Yap Koon Chan with the Nanyang Distinguished Alumni Award.

One of Singapore’s most famous writers in the Chinese language, Mr Yap Koon Chan is best known by his pen name Luo Ming. His other pen names include Situ Wen, Liu Xin, Liu Bu, Zhao Ming, Tang Ni, Hu Jia, Si Ma Lu and Qiu Ye.

His passionate advocacy for Chinese Literature began in the 1950s as an undergraduate at Nanyang University (Nantah), a predecessor institution of NTU. An excellent essayist, he co-founded with other budding Nantah writers the ‘Nanyang University Literary Creation Society’, which was to become a hotbed for literary creation and critique.

From the 1960s to 1970s, Mr Yap was an educator in Chung Cheng High School and Catholic High School, holding various positions from Teacher, Dean of Studies, to Principal. During that period, he was also the Secretary General of the Singapore Middle Schools Chinese Teachers’ Association. Apart from his contributions to education, he also helped bring back to life two publications, Nanyang Education and Singapore Youth. Mr Yap also published Journal on the Teaching of Chinese Language, and planned the publication of two book collections on the teaching of Chinese Language.

In 1980, he became the President of the Singapore Literary Research Association, later known as the Singapore Literature Society, and has held the position for the past 30 years. Under his leadership, the Society published many literary journals and book collections, including Singapore Chinese Literature Magazine, Singapore Chinese Literature Newspaper, and other publications. 

A passionate literary activist, Mr Yap has spared no effort in the promotion of Chinese Literature. He has planned and organised many international seminars, camps, and symposiums on Chinese literature, such as the ‘Conference on International Chinese Literature’, the ‘Singapore Chinese Literature Award’, the ‘Lian Shi Sheng Award’, ‘Literary Salons’, ‘Focused Literature seminars’, ‘Yao Zi’s Literature Development Path’ and promoted Singapore Chinese Literature overseas, such as the inter-cultural programs, overseas exhibitions etc.

With a vision to promote ASEAN Chinese literature to the rest of the world, Mr Yap founded in 1988 the biennial ASEAN Literature Camp.  The fist ASEAN Literature Camp was held in Singapore, allowing Chinese-language writers from the six ASEAN countries of Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, The Philippines and Brunei to come together. The camp created an important platform for exchange on Chinese creative writing, and opened for Chinese literature in ASEAN a window to the world.

In the 1990s, Mr Yap began to systematically publish collections of Chinese literary works, including a book collection of ‘Studies on Chinese Writers in Singapore’, ‘Singapore Chinese Literature Award Winners’, ‘Salute to the Elderly’, ‘Deceased Writers’, ‘Young Writers’, ‘Chronicles of Living in Flats’, ‘Chronicles of Flyovers’, amongst others. To systematically organise information for a fuller picture of Chinese literature in Singapore, Mr Yap also worked with Singapore’s National Library Board on  A Photographic Catalogue of Manuscripts of Writers who Came South, Research Materials on Writers Who Came South and Yao Zi’s Literature Development Path.  In addition, he worked with other Literature organizations to publish the Biographies ofChinese Language Writers in Singapore.

Mr Yap has not stopped writing for the last 50 years, publishing essays, travelogues and critiques. He has published to-date 25 books.  They include works such as Travel Tracks, New to the World,ASEAN Chinese Literature – Another Realm of Influence, Wishful Thinking, Thoughts, Pilgrimage in September  and The Works of Luo Ming.

To honour his pioneering work in literature, Mr Yap has received the Intercultural Literature Relations Award from the Beijing TV and Broadcasting station, and the Nanyang Chinese Literature Award from Confucius Institute, Nanyang Technological University (CI-NTU) in 2011, as well as accolades from Thailand and the Philippines.

In March 2012, the Singapore Museum of Chinese Literature is finally established – a project Mr Yap began a decade ago. The tireless scholar envisions the museum to be a valuable information repository for the research and promotion of Singapore Chinese literature, as well as for the international exchange of literature. It is an embodiment of the value of Singapore Chinese literature.
Mr Yap is currently a Visiting Research Fellow at the Southeast Asian Chinese Literature Research Centre of China’s Xiamen University.

叶昆灿
文学院
文学士/1959年毕业班

德高望重的文坛前辈、新华文学的点灯人

  叶昆灿先生倾注一生心血,充当新华文学发展之路最坚实的推手,让亚细安华文文学在世界华人语言文化版图中占据一席之位;南洋理工大学特此颁发南洋卓越校友奖,向这位新华文坛资深前辈致以最高敬意。

  叶昆灿,笔名骆明、司徒文、刘心、刘步、赵明、唐尼、胡笳、司马路、丘野等;其中以“骆明”享誉文坛。

  他对文艺创作的热爱始于1950年代前南洋大学求学时期,擅长散文创作,并与南大文友共同创建了纯文学创作和文学评论园地“南洋大学创作社”。

  六七十年代投身教育界,他先后在中正中学和公教中学执教,当过老师、教务主任、校长,并出任新加坡中学华文教师会秘书长一职。期间除了推展教育事务,也促成《南洋教育》和《新加坡青年》复刊、《中教学报》出版,同时策划出版“中教文艺丛书”和“中教文艺小丛书”等。

  1980年,新加坡文艺研究会(新加坡文艺协会前身)成立,两年后叶先生出任会长迄今,长达30年。在他的领导下,协会出版多份文艺期刊与丛书,包括《新加坡文艺》、《新加坡文艺报》等等。
除了热衷于文艺出版,叶先生对推动文学活动亦不遗余力,策划和筹办过不少华文文学会议和活动,例如“国际华文文学会议” 、“新华文学奖”、“连士升文学奖”、“文艺沙龙”、“文学专题讲座”、“姚紫文学历程展”以及推动新加坡海外华文文学的交流与沟通等等。

  对于把亚细安华文文学推向世界,叶先生始终心怀使命。1988年,他倡导发起每两年召开一次“亚细安华文文艺营”。首届“亚细安文艺营”在新加坡举行,聚集了来自新马泰印菲汶等亚细安六国的华文作家,为本区域华文创作搭建重要的交流平台,也开启了亚细安华文文学面向世界的窗口。
九十年代起,他更是有计划地编撰出版新加坡华文文学丛书,如《新加坡华文作家研究丛书》 、《新华文学奖丛书》 、《向文艺敬礼纪念特辑丛书》、《已故作家丛书》、《资深作家丛书》、《青年作家丛书》、《组屋丛书》、《天桥丛书》,并与新加坡国家图书馆管理局合作编辑出版《南来作家手稿图片展目录》、 《南来作家研究资料》和《姚紫的文学历程》,也与其他文学团体合编《新华作家传略》,有系统地整理出新华文学全貌进一步向外引介。

  为新华文坛开路之余,叶先生始终不忘创作热情,执笔五十余载,出版过的个人著作包括散文、游记、杂感、随笔、评论等共25部,如《游踪》五册、《初出芧庐》、《东南亚——另一片华文文学天空》、《骆明文集》、《骆明散文集》、《乱想及其他》、《随想录》、《九月进香》等。

  叶先生在新华文坛的成就与贡献备受海内外尊崇。他获北京广播电视台颁发“跨文化文学交流奖、2011年获南洋理工大学孔子学院颁发南洋华文文学奖,泰国与菲律宾也先后颁发奖状予以表扬。
今年3月,他着手筹备了十年的新华文学馆,终于落成。文学馆为新华文学设立起完整资料库,方便海内外进行研究及交流;更是新加坡华文文学的价值与地位具体化的象征。

  叶先生现任厦门大学东南亚华文文学研究中心特约研究员。
