Stanford University will host the Digital Humanities Asia 2018 Summit on April 27-28, 2018.
Organized by Thomas S. Mullaney (Stanford University), author of The Chinese Typewriter: A History, the two-day conference features an international group of speakers on a wide range of topics:
[T]he DHAsia 2018 Summit will focus on four (4) areas of research that represent both the core of DH as a whole, as well as areas in which Asian Studies scholars have been underserved and under-resourced: (1) the Spatial Analysis of Asian Human Geographies, (2) Text Mining and Computational Analysis of Asian & Non-Latin Scripts, (3) Network Analysis of Non-Western social formations, and (4) the development of Digital Humanities tools and platforms designed for the unique challenges of Asian Studies scholarship.
Registration is free, and a tentative program is now available.
