On February 9-10, 2018, the international conference “Patterns and Networks in Classical Chinese Literature: Notes from the Digital Frontier” will convene in the McCune Conference Room at UC Santa Barbara. The conference, organized by EALCS assistant professor Thomas Mazanec, will bring together twelve scholars from around the globe to present examples of the groundbreaking research taking place at the intersection of digital humanities and classical Chinese literary studies. Covering poetry, prose, fiction, history, linguistics, and philosophy over the course of two millennia, these studies will show how computing technologies can help researchers uncover previously unseen patterns and networks in their materials, shedding new light on premodern texts.
The event is free and open to the public. All are welcome to attend.
