The Ten Thousand Rooms Project

March 1, 2017

On Thursday, March 2 at 4:00pm in Bass Library LO1 A&B, Mick Hunter, Assistant Professor of East Asian Languages & Literature, and Tina Lu, Chair & Professor of East Asian Languages & Literature at Yale, will introduce the Ten Thousand Rooms Project, a collaborative workspace for the study of pre-modern Chinese texts that is supported by Yale University and the Mellon Foundation. Through the platform, users can upload images of the materials they wish to work on, define scholarly projects around those materials, invite others to join their projects, and collaboratively produce transcriptions, translations, and commentaries. As a shared workspace, a publication venue for core philological work, a textual repository, and a pedagogical tool, the Ten Thousand Rooms platform has any number of uses for students, teachers, researchers, and librarians. All are welcome!
