Prof. Chu Ping-tzu Visits Seoul’s Yonsei University to Deliver a Taiwan Lecture on Chinese Studies

Yonsei University has one of the longest histories of any university in Korea, and has long ranked among its top universities. In 2016, Yonsei University and Taiwan’s National Central Library (NCL) jointly established a Taiwan Resource Center for Chinese Studies (TRCCS) at the university. On June 29, 2018, the NCL’s Center for Chinese Studies (CCS) and Yonsei University jointly held the forth Taiwan Lecture on Chinese Studies of the year at the university’s Institute for Research in the Humanities. Prof. Chu Ping-tzu’s lecture was the first Taiwan Lecture on Chinese Studies to be held at Yonsei University.

In his lecture, Prof. Chu emphasized that the development of Taiwan’s digital humanities actually began very early, establishing a firm foundation for its future development. However, a lack of sufficient funding and specialist talent still limits the future development of the digital humanities in Taiwan.

Digital humanities research is seen around the world as an innovative form of research. This was reflected in fact that 50 staff and students from the university’s College of Liberal Arts attended the lecture. After the lecture, a number of scholars in the audience asked Prof. Chu’s advice regarding digital tools in their field of research.

At the end of the lecture, NCL International Cooperation Division director, Ms. Keng Li-chun, made a speech in which she gave a brief introduction to the Kyoto University TRCCS. She also talked about how CCS, the Research Grant for Foreign Scholars in Chinese Studies, and the Taiwan Fellowship have extended the use of Taiwan’s academic resources overseas and strengthened international exchanges, while also enhancing Taiwan’s research capabilities.
