Looking forward to discussing the Chinese Text Project at the second meeting of this exciting new series!
Introducing the Chinese Text Project
The Chinese Text Project is an online open-access digital library that makes pre-modern Chinese texts available to readers and researchers all around the world. The site attempts to make use of the digital medium to explore new ways of interacting with these texts that are not possible in print. With over thirty thousand titles and more than five billion characters, the Chinese Text Project is also the largest database of pre-modern Chinese texts in existence. In our second meeting of the Harvard-Yenching Library Forum, Dr. Donald Sturgeon, the founder and the developer of the Chinese Text Project and now a post-doctoral fellow at the Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies, will give a short introduction to the database and the rationale behind it, followed by an open discussion on the issues of databases and digital scholarship.
Speaker: Dr. Donald Sturgeon (Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies)
Time: 12-1pm, Mar. 22 (Wed)
Location: Common Room, Harvard-Yenching Library (2 Divinity Ave)
Light refreshments provided.
