Close and Distant Reading of Historical Primary Sources (via Zoom)

The British historian E.H. Carr famously likened historical facts to “fish swimming about in a vast and sometimes inaccessible ocean”. Today, digital technology allows scholars to cast wide-ranging nets into this vast ocean and make new discoveries that would have been nearly impossible via traditional methods. Join Senior Product Manager Masaki Morisawa in this session where he will guide researchers and students on how to make the most out of historical material available to HKU through two different platforms, Gale Primary Sources (traditional search-and-retrieve platform for close reading) and Gale Digital Scholar Lab (gather-and-analyze text mining platform for distant reading). He will also provide a brief overview of each of the 20+ archives available to HKU, including historical newspapers, government documents, material on Chinese history, gender history, legal history, and much more!
