QUAL Program Partners with Tateuchi East Asia Library to Increase Access to Digital Scholarship Initiatives

November 6, 2020

The Qualitative Multi-Method Research Program (QUAL) is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Tateuchi East Asia Library in autumn 2020. We are joining forces with TEAL to promote qualitative methods across the humanities, with a specific focus on digital scholarship related initiatives and workshops.

For the academic year 2020-2021, Tateuchi East Asia Library (TEAL) hosts two series of digital scholarship related events: Digital Scholarship for East Asian Studies and Digital Scholarship Coffee Hour. Being in the intersection of interdisciplinarity, TEAL provides a space to share and discuss the cross-regional digital scholarship examples, methods, and techniques with a greater field of East Asian Studies community. You can find their events on the Jackson School events page and the QUAL events page.


Digital Scholarship for East Asian Studies is two-fold: speaker series (first month of the quarter) and hands-on workshop series (second month of the quarter) which theme would be related to the talk at the speaker series in the previous month. In the autumn quarter, we plan to have the following two events.

October 8, 5:00-6:30 Digital Scholarship in the Study of Historical Japanese Earthquakes

Dr. Yuta Hashimoto, National Museum of Japanese History

(this event is already done; video recording will be available soon)

November 2 and 9, 3:30-5:00, Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Workshop

Erika Bailey and Elliott Stevens, UW Libraries

Digital Scholarship Coffee Hour is a monthly community gathering where students and faculty bring their digital scholarship projects to share their work and ask for audience’s advice. We will also have a brief recap of the month’s Digital Scholarship for East Asian Studies event. The Coffee Hour will be held on the fourth Monday of the first two months of the quarter at 3:30-5:00 pm. In the autumn quarter, the Coffee Hour will be held on October 26 and November 23.
