Workshop on "Taiwan Biographical DataBase" in Taiwan


On behalf of other co-organizers, the Research Center of the Oriental Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences kindly invites you to a workshop on "Taiwan Biographical DataBase" to be held on 12.5. 2017 at conference room no. 1 of the National Museum of Taiwanese Literature from 9:00–16:00. Program in Chinese is here.

 The address of the venue is No.1, Zhongzheng Rd.,West Central District,Tainan City 700, Taiwan.
After a decade of rapid expansion in various fields of research in Taiwan, digital humanities methods have become an increasingly influential approach in the study of Taiwanese literature as well. Together with the Taiwanese Association of Digital Humanities and the Oriental Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences, the National Museum of Taiwanese Literature will jointly organize a workshop to prepare the establishment of a Taiwanese Biographical Database (TBDB). This database will supply researchers with a much-needed tool to investigate sociological trends across large swathes of the literary field and analyze how these unfolded in time and space. The database will be specifically designed to aid in the prosopographical study of Taiwanese historical and literary figures from pre-modern times until the 1960s.
