马洛瑞•斯戴尔院长:


非常感谢各位。今天能在这里和你们一起开启第二届亚洲-----中东国际高层学术论坛,令我非常高兴。朱威烈先生,我希望你在华盛顿感到备受欢迎,一如我两年前作为论坛的共同主办方出席第一届会议时在上海的感受。 


我要感谢美国海军学院中东和伊斯兰研究中心主任Brannon Wheeler教授和美国国会图书馆亚洲馆馆长Peter Young博士以及论坛会议的所有承办方和协办方。今天在座的各界人士和你们所代表的国家、大学及研究机构已经体现了和中东关系研究的广度和规模,以及这种关系跨文化、跨机构、跨国界的持久影响。今天在座的除各国大学学者和智库研究人员外,还有外交界、军界、工商界、非营利组织、文化界和新闻界的代表。我也很高兴能与我的同事,本届论坛的美方执行主席安琦.郝博士(Anchi Hoh)一起参加开幕会。


三年前在我们建议建立一个东西方学术界研究中东关系的论坛时,我们看到的是许多的困难,我们之间文化的差异、语言的问题和历史的不同。而两年前当我们共同努力在上海开启了第一届论坛时,我们建立起了我们共同的信心。今天我们看到了我们之间有潜力开辟一个更加光明的前景,我们的研究不仅仅服务于我们各自的国家,我们还要通过交流和学习造福于整个世界。我们同样处在全球最大的二个文明体系之列,同在全世界人口最多的国家之列,军队规模在全世界数一数二,而且还是全球最大的两个能源消耗国和碳排放国。出于上述原因及其它多种原因,我们各自的研究重点和政策建议会对全球产生影响。 


我们认为,通过我们这次论坛更开放更坦诚的讨论和交流,我们不仅能够加强我们的学术关系,促进对中东关系的深入研究,还能够进一步加强必须存在于我们两个伟大文明及其学术界之间的信任与理解,为世界热点地区带来和平与稳定。


当然,我们不可能在所有问题上持一致的学术观点和看法。我们有着不同的历史、不同的经历、不同的视野。这正是我们致力于与中国及其他亚洲合作伙伴合作的重要性所在。


我这是第二次以美国亚洲文化学院院长身份在亚洲----中东高层学术论坛上发言。我感谢我有这第二次机会对我的同事安琦博士和上海外国语大学中东研究所所长朱威烈教授表示我深深的谢意。我非常珍重你们在过去两年时间内所建立起来的交流协作和论坛建设。我们更密切地并肩工作,我不断从你们的丰富经验和智慧中获益。


谢谢大家









The Welcoming Remarks of Dr. R. Mallory Starr Jr., President of US Asian Cultural Academy at the 2nd Conference of the Biannual International Forum on Asia-Middle East Studies

October 16, 2009

U.S. Naval Academy


Dr. R. Mallory Starr Jr.



Good morning, everyone.  I am very delighted to be here to celebrate with you the opening of the 2nd conference of the Biannual International Forum on Asia-Middle East Studies.  Director Weilie Zhu, I hope you are feeling the warm hospitality, as I did two years ago in Shanghai as one of the key organizers for the 1st conference under this Biannual Forum.


I would like to thank Prof. Brannon Wheeler, Director for the Middle East and Islamic Studies Center of the U.S. Naval Academy, Dr. Peter Young, Chief of the Asian Division of the Library of Congress, and all the co-organizers and co-sponsors.  The entire conference participants and the countries, universities, and research institutions that you each represent today have already demonstrated the width and depth of the Middle East Studies and the growing influences of cross-cultural, cross-institutional, and cross-regional dialogues.  Today among the audience, in addition to scholars from universities and think tanks, are representatives from the diplomatic circle, military, business sector, NGOs, cultural organizations, as well as the news media.  I am also very pleased to celebrate this opening here with my colleague, Dr. Anchi Hoh, Co-Chair of this International Forum.


Three years ago when we first proposed to establish an international forum on Middle East studies, what we saw were countless difficulties, such as the differences in history and culture as well as the language barriers.  Two years ago when we made joint efforts in holding the first International Forum in Shanghai, we developed mutual trust.  Today we can certainly see the potential to co-build an even brighter future.  Not only that our research serves our own countries, but through scholarly exchange and mutual learning we also serve the global community.  Particularly China and the US, both are among great contemporary civilizations, both among the countries with the largest populations, both have the world’s finest military system, and both play an important role in the world’s energy consumption and coal emission.  Because of all the above-mentioned factors, our research focuses and policy advices can and should create global impacts.


Through open discussions, we believe that this conference can help enhancing our global scholarly communications and further strengthen the mutual trust and understanding between the Eastern and Western civilizations and scholarship.  This mutual trust and understanding will no doubt contribute to the peace and stability of the hot spot areas in the world.


Of course, it would be unreasonable to expect that we all uphold the same opinions on a particular subject.  Each of us has different and distinct histories, experiences, and perspectives.  It is these differences that further highlight the importance of international collaboration and communications.


This is my second time speaking at the International Forum on Asia-Middle East Studies as the President of UACA.  I would like to express my deepest gratitude for the efforts made by my colleague, Dr. Anchi Hoh and Prof. Weilie Zhu, Director for the Middle East Studies Institute at Shanghai International Studies University.  Your dedication in the past two years to the establishment of this Forum is greatly appreciated.  I look forward to continuing our collaboration.


Thank you.
