Event description: 

Emily Baum (University of California, Irvine) and Denise Y. Ho (Yale University) present the second annual webinar series, Doing Chinese History (in a New Era). Designed for—but not exclusive to—graduate students and junior scholars in Chinese history and Chinese studies, these webinars aim to address persistent challenges in research and professional development.

Webinar 2 builds on the popularity of last year’s webinars—especially one on digital sources and one on archives outside of China—to focus on research in Taiwan. This year we feature four scholars who are professional archivists as well as historians and invite them to introduce archival, digital, and library resources in Taiwan. Featured collections include those of Academia Sinica and the National Archives Administration.
• Feng-yuan Hsu, National Archives Administration
• Shiuon Chu, Academia Sinica, Institute of Modern History
• Hsi-yuan Chen, Academia Sinica, Institute of History and Philology and Academia Sinica Center for Digital Cultures
• Hsiao Ya-Hung, Academia Sinica, Institute of Modern History Archives
