    I’m pleased to announce that Paul Vierthaler of William & Mary and Molly Des Jardin of the Penn Libraries will be co-teaching a new workshop this year at University of Pennsylvania’s Dream Lab event, June 1-4, 2020, in Philadelphia PA: “Digital Humanities for East Asian Studies.” While there are always a lot of interesting workshops and events in the DH world over the summer, I hope you might consider our course if it’s relevant to your work — anyone is welcome (students, faculty, staff, etc.), and there are no particular prerequisites. You can find out more information at this link: http://web.sas.upenn.edu/dream-lab/dhforeastasianstudies/

    This workshop 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. The workshop 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 broadly. Because East Asian studies encompasses a wide range of methods, we will cover topics ranging from corpus preparation and text analysis to APIs, IIIF, and digital resources relevant to materials in these languages.

    More logistical details: Regular – $900 Early Career Scholars and Cultural Heritage Professionals – $700 Student (currently enrolled) – $500 In addition to the discounted rate, there is an additional discount of $250 for students and early career scholars and cultural heritage professionals who register before May 1, 2020. That brings the cost for students down to $250 and $450 for early career professionals. There is campus housing available for $68/night plus occupancy tax for those coming from out of town. Please contact Stewart Varner (svarner@upenn.edu) at the Penn Price Lab for more information about the nuts and bolts; you are welcome to contact Molly or Paul for information about the course content itself.
