Speaker: Hsiang-an Wang (Academia Sinica Center for Digital Cultures)
Launched in October 2018, the Academia Sinica Digital Humanities Research Platform (https://idh.ascdc.sinica.edu.tw/member/) is an one-stop platform of source materials, digital tools, and collaboration that enables big data analysis for innovative research. Combining open access and crowd collaboration, it enables search, keyword tagging, statistical analysis, text comparison, etc. for over 47,000 Chinese digital texts (~7.6 billion words) from Academia Sinica, Kyoto University, and more. The English version of the platform was added in 2020, allowing big data analysis of English texts. In the October webinar of the East Asian Digital Scholarship series, Dr. Wang Hsiang-an will introduce the platform to us.
The East Asian Digital Scholarship Series, founded by Feng-en Tu and Sharon Yang, has been a monthly luncheon at Harvard-Yenching Library. This year, the Series will be conducted remotely and is sponsored by Harvard-Yenching Library with the support of the Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies, Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies, and Korea Institute. The Series will cover a wide range of topics in East Asian digital scholarship.
The webinar will be conducted via Zoom. Participants will be required to register at https://link.ws/eads-oct20.
