Expanding Scale and Deepening Engagement in Digital Humanities: From an Overview of Hong Kong to Institution-Specific Outcomes and Future Directions

Research output: Chapter in book/report/conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

This chapter consists of three major sections. It will start by providing an overview of the latest state of digital humanities development in Hong Kong. This first section is intended to serve as a follow-up to an earlier paper co-published by the author in 2015 that discussed the results of a questionnaire sent to the eight public universities in Hong Kong. After this discussion of the general landscape, the second section will drill down to a more institution-specific level, providing an in-depth case study of Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) Library, which is seen as a local pioneer and leader in digital humanities. This section will highlight the library's most recent initiatives and the positive responses of its university. The last section will discuss possible future directions of the HKBU Library, building on the successful partnerships developed with faculty members from diverse backgrounds, and the knowledge gained on data mining and data visualization during the course of the library's provision of digital humanities support.
