    Powerpoint presentation for the MLA2020 collaborative roundtable "Digital Humanities in Japan and Korea: Approaches and Challenges," organized by the LLC Korean and LLC Japanese since 1900 Forums. This brief introduction to "Re-Envisioning Japan: Japan as Destination in 20th Century Visual and Material Culture" was one of seven presentations by East Asian scholars working on Korea- and Japan-related DH projects, each targeting specific challenges to digital scholarship and pedagogy in these two fields. "Re-Envisioning Japan" is an open-ended DH project comprising a multimodal digital archive and a heterogeneous physical collection of Japan-related travel, education, and entertainment ephemera; it has a dedicated companion course, "Tourist Japan," a hands-on digital humanities lab course in which students complete assignments (e.g., "Object Encounters," slide 5) that bridge academic inquiry and curatorial skills. After a brief introduction of "Re-Envisioning Japan" (slides 1-3), I introduced three topics for discussion (summarized on slide 4) based on my experience in Japan-specific DH scholarship and pedagogy: (1) evaluation of digital scholarship in tenure and promotion, (2) sustainability and support for Japan-specific DH projects, and (3) rewards.
