EACP Online Event: A Digital Humanities Approach to Modern Confucianism

23 April 2021 (14h00-16h00 CEST)

Speakers: Ralph Weber, Philippe Major, Chan Yim Fong and Milan Matthiesen (University of Basel).

While European-language scholarship on Modern Confucianism has been steadily expanding for the last 20 years, the approaches adopted in the field have remained for the most part either philosophical or historical. Building on the strengths of such approaches, the workshop will argue for an opening up of new and/or interdisciplinary perspectives by focusing on the value of a digital humanities approach to Modern Confucianism. Situated in the broader framework of a Sociology of Modern Confucian Philosophy, a digital humanities approach has the potential to reveal new and unforeseen perspectives on Modern Confucian Philosophy.
