Building a Digital Resource Center for the Cultural Study of Chinese Dialects

This project will build a digital resource center for the cultural study of Chinese dialects.

Much of this will take the shape of a database of fangyan media, the media productions rendered in various Chinese dialects or local languages in contemporary China.  Preliminary work can be found at

DILAC funding will also be used to attend the upcoming conference at Stanford on DH and Asian Studies, entitled “Digital Humanities Asia: Harnessing Digital Technologies to Advance the Study of Asia and the Non-Western World,” in order to gain skills and knowledge necessary to create a successful digital resource center.
