「郵」然神往: 孫中山首日封展覽 Sun Yat-sen Memorial First Day of Issue Envelopes and Stamps Exhibition

 

 

毫無疑問,孫中山先生(1866-1925)是中國偉大的歷史人物,由中國郵政當局歷來發行的孫中山紀念郵票可見,他是受政權和民眾歡迎的國家領袖。此外,為鞏固與中國的邦交,不少國家相繼發行以孫中山先生為主題的郵票及首日封,反映他不但深受華人喜愛,更在國際社會享有非凡榮譽。

近年在新文化史的影響下,歷史學家注重孫中山身後形象的建構過程及背後的權力關係,但主要依賴文字資料和儀式、空間等方面作重構。究竟孫中山形象是如何通過圖像呈現﹖民眾如何通過觀賞接受孫中山作為國家領袖﹖

香港浸會大學歷系孫中山研團隊致力收集有關孫中山先生身後形象建構的歷史資料,適逢2021年是孫中山誕辰一百五十五周年紀念,誠意展出多張珍貴的孫中山首日封,希望借此探討如何透過圖像、郵品和政治宣傳建構、呈現和挪用歷史記憶,使孫中山先生成為使國人和世界神往的一個重要象徵符號。
