The first of its kind in Australia to examine the scope of state-of-the-art computerized textual analysis of traditional Chinese texts, this workshop will bring together distinguished international experts in the combined fields of Chinese studies and Digital Humanities (DH).
These experts will introduce scholars and students at ANU and beyond to their particular areas of expertise in digital text analysis. This general overview of their work will be followed by sessions devoted to the more specific question of how to digitally analyse multi-layered Chinese texts, such as texts with commentaries.
On its final day the workshop aims to provide a forum for students and early career researchers to present their own DH projects in the form of poster sessions and discuss them with the experts. The best eight presenters will receive small grants in support of their participation.

Rethinking Pollution Symposium: Environmental Politics, Public Health and Civil Society in Asia & the Pacific
The symposium is aimed at tackling and interrogating a major environmental and socio-economic challenge of the 21st century: pollution.
The symposium brings together national and international leaders in language education to map out their visions of what constitutes innovative language education today and share and discuss the pressing national and international issues surrounding language education. It offers participants the opportunity to learn about the latest research in Asian language teaching and hands on opportunities to learn about developments in language teaching pedagogy. Through this study of policy, research and pedagogy the symposium will further debate about how Australia can set its course to lead the way forward in language education in the Asian Century.
The ANU Korea Institute hosted the conference “Latent Histories, Manifest Impacts: Interplay between Korea and Southeast Asia” from 26-27 February 2015 at the Australian National University.
