Abstract

This article aims to form part of wider discussions associated with the development of the digital humanities in the Western sphere and the perceived dominance of the English language and preponderance of text-based scholarship. These discussions intend to raise questions around the lack of engagement that our field has with some geographical regions. As a case study, this article considers mainland China and asks how we might make positive steps to enable closer engagement in order to create a more global digital humanities to the benefit of us all. This study is informed by the first author's networking with Chinese digital humanities research groups and centres, as well as conference attendance in the PRC, and the experiences of the second author as a Chinese graduate student and researcher in the UK.
