圆切线

第六期 (半年刊) (2003年4月)

双语特辑:历史众声

 
重新检视新加坡历史

以重新检视新加坡历史为主题,《圆切线》第六期收集了圆切线社团去年11月与新加坡亚洲研究学会联办的论坛“解/构历史”上,刘燕燕、周伟立和吴新慧三位社员所发表的文章,以及李元瑾博士与何启良博士的评讲。它也收录了当时台上台下多名参与者的发言,及会后数名年轻人的回应。

为了解过去,圆切线社员还走访了三位长辈-韩山元、英培安和许黛安。三人各自从自己的成长经验,发出属于自己的“历史声音”,从三种不同的视角来看新加坡历史。

虽然不能将几段口述历史当作全部的事实,但无可否认,呈现更多的说法,是寻求真相的必经之路。就如《圆切线》主编李慧玲所说:“我们未必能挖掘到真相,但是却必须存有追求真相的信念。”

"Reflection on Singapore's history" is the theme for this Tangent Issue. During a Tangent Forum "(Un)Learning the Past", Tangent members Low Yen Yen, Chiu Wei Li and Goh Sin Hwee presented their essays. As alternative perspectives, they posed questions such as how we view certain segments of history, and why we think history might be important. Compiling responses from Dr Ho Kai Leong and Dr Lee Guan Kin, as well as several later contributors, the three members modified their essays and had them published in this new issue.

Tangent also interviewed three elders: Mr Han Tan Juan, Mr Yeng Pway Ngon, and Professor Koh Tai Ann. Looking at the history of Singapore from three different viewpoints, readers will find themselves looking at three distinct stories of personal encounters in the history of Singapore.

Of course, we cannot rely on a few pieces of oral history as representative of the full picture. However, we cannot deny that a plurality of interpretations is necessary on the road towards uncovering the truth. As Tangent Editor-in-Chief Lee Huay Leng said, "we might not uncover the truth, but we should retain our spirit of inquiry."

“有的人把某段历史、某些人物的过去归列为‘敏感’部分,是说不得、碰不得、议论不得的。但是在拼凑历史版图的时候,是否真的应该有所谓的‘敏感’?‘敏感’的定义和范围由谁来划定?是权力的掌握者,还是权力的失去者?”

"Some people consider certain episodes of history and certain characters' pasts to be "sensitive" areas that are taboo, untouchable and best not debated. But when piecing the bits of history together, should there really be events deemed as 'sensitive'? Who decides the definition and boundaries of 'sensitive' areas? Is it one who is in power, or one who is out of power?"
