Professor Mick Hunter and Professor Tina Lu (East Asian Languages & Literatures) 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.
