Unveiling the “Chinese Theater Collaborative”/華語戲聚 Digital Resource
On Tuesday, January 16, 2024, The Institute for Chinese Studies and the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures at The Ohio State University, in collaboration with the Advanced Institute for Global Chinese Studies (Lingnan University), launched the web project "Chinese Theater Collaborative”. Moderated by the project’s founding editor Professor Patricia Sieber and content editor Julia Keblinska, the event introduced this digital resource center.
The project was funded by a Collaborative Centers Grant from Global Arts and Humanities Discovery Theme (GAHDT). The funded project, Toward a Digital Humanities Support Network, was initiated and led by Digital Humanities Librarian Leigh Bonds and Maria Palazzi, Professor of Design. Toward a Digital Humanities Support Network explores the construction of a collaborative network and the implementation of a web-publishing platform for digital collections, drawing upon established expertise in ACCAD, University Libraries, and the Humanities Institute, to support both faculty and graduate-student research through collaboration, consultation, instruction, and referrals within the network.
Maria Palazzi, Taylor Olsen (UX/UI designer), and Department of Design students contributed to bringing the "Chinese Theater Collaborative" online through their design expertise in branding, web, and UI/UX design.
Accessible at https://chinesetheatercollaborative.org/ctc/index, the “Chinese Theater Collaborative” offers resources for plays and an overview of media types in the form of educational modules, among other useful tools for learning about the rich history of traditional Chinese drama and its contemporary interpretations. As the "Chinese Theater Collaborative" opens its virtual doors, ACCAD invites the community, researchers, and enthusiasts to explore the wealth of resources and interactive features on the website.
