East Asian Digital Humanities Lab

At the Harvard-Yenching Library


The East Asian Digital Humanities Lab aims to serve as a starting point for scholars and students interested in digital scholarship in East Asian studies. It exhibits ongoing or completed DH projects that can be used as model and provides information about databases, tools and methods that are used in creating these projects. The rest of the site is arranged according to the usual workflow of digital humanists, starting from finding and managing data and moving subsequently to analysis and presentation.
