Course Description:

This course focuses on current and emerging digital projects and methods for East Asian studies, which use primary sources written in classical and modern Chinese, Japanese, and Korean languages. While it is open to all disciplines and areas of interest, it is recommended that participants have reading knowledge of at least one of these languages specific to their own work. Held over 8 sessions (2 hours each) on Zoom, this all-virtual short course is intended for faculty, librarians, information specialists, and other instructors in East Asian Studies who wish to incorporate digital methodologies into their research, teaching, or curricular development. 

Graduate students and contingent faculty are encouraged to apply to our summer Dream Lab course, as this one will specifically address faculty and instructional needs.

East Asian Studies and Digital Humanities will include a broad overview of the state of the field, presentations of methods and hands-on sessions with tools and projects, and active discussion about pedagogy, self-directed learning, and future directions for DH research and projects in East Asian studies. Because East Asian studies encompasses a wide range of methods, we will cover topics ranging from corpus preparation and text analysis to OCR, IIIF, network analysis, and digital resources relevant to materials in these languages.

This class is an introductory one geared toward those with little to no DH training and will prioritize applications according to experience level, the (un)availability of digital humanities specialists at their institutions, and project/teaching-oriented needs. 

Please be aware that the course is capped at 32 participants. Sessions will be 100% virtual and will not be recorded. Those who have attended past Dream Lab: East Asian Studies & Digital Humanities courses are not eligible to apply again.
