Resources for Research and Teaching

Digital and web resources have transformed the study of East Asia. Like scholars in other fields, Asianists are engaging with digital humanities and “big data." Yet all the more so for the  study of Asia, computing can help bridge divides of language and physical distance, making sources available to students and teachers of all levels that were once primarily accessible to experts. Building on the China Gateway site originally developed at Boston College, Brown scholars have gathered here our selection of the most useful digital starting points for learning, research and teaching in East Asia. They reflect our own current focus on the culture and history of the modern period, but will develop as the site grows.  The Historian’s Toolkit collects our own specially developed digital tools and primary source learning modules.
