TO MARK the first anniversary of the death of writer Han Suyin next month, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is launching a translation scholarship fund in her name and organising a forum on her contributions in the field of translation.
The two events by NTU’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences in memory of the former Nanyang University (Nantah) lecturer will be held simultaneously at NTU’s Chinese Heritage Centre in Jurong on Nov 16.
The China-born, Eurasian doctor-turned-writer died in Lausanne, Switzerland, aged 95.
Best known for her 1952 novel A Many Splendored Thing, she is remembered by many Nantah graduates as a leftist-leaning lecturer who supported the birth of Nantah in 1953.
Han, who wrote more than 40 books, was proficient in Chinese, English and French. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
