Dear all,

I can do the Taiwanese part if no one has a better candidate.  For Hong Kong
I would recommend Ping-Chen Hsiung, a Professor of History and a
former Dean of Arts at the Chinese U. of HK.
Don't have anyone of similar caliber in China to recommend, though.

To be honest, since this is our first project and we are also still drafting a terms of reference (and doing it during a hurricane, no less) this is maybe even the best way. I think we could probably incorporate Christian's suggestions into this kind of proposal.

> The newly founded ADHO initiative Global Outreach (GO::DH) aims to facilitate communication between the various ADHO committees and emergent DH groups and activities in countries which are not yet well represented within ADHO. This session proposal is one of GO::DH attempts to raise the visibility of underrepresented communities, in this case, of work done in the Chinese speaking world.

> Like all cultures, China is faced with the question of how to model its cultural heritage in a digital environment. Comparable only to India in historic range, geographic size, and population, there are various initiatives in China, Hongkong and Taiwan that work on solutions to digitize and distribute their shared cultural heritage. After successful international cooperation yielded the Unicode standard, which resolved the pressing issue of how to represent the logographic writing system in computing, continued dialog on standards and practices in DH is of mutual interest for both ADHO members and the emerging DH centers in China, Hongkong and Taiwan. In East Asia, efforts by Japanese practitioners of DH has already resulted in the foundation of the Japanese Association of Digital Humanities, which joined ADHO last year, an important development in the globalization of the field. In the Chinese speaking world too there is great potential for dialog, synergy and cooperation between DH centers to discuss standards and practices. Communication about shared standards generally improves the chances that the results are interchangeable, avoids duplication of efforts, and increases efficiency.

> As internationalization and support for developing, regional centers is part of ADHO’s mission, the members of the GO::DH feel it is desirable to organize a roundtable on “Chinese DH” with representatives from China, Taiwan, Hongkong and perhaps Singapore to speak about the situation of DH in their societies and the prospects and potential problems for further collaboration with both within East Asia as well as with ADHO members.
>
> Following a discussion on the globaloutlookdh list regarding the possible format for such a roundtable, Neil Fraistat, the current Chair of ADHO, offered to split the ADHO business meeting and use the second 45 min section to a ADHO GO::DH roundtable on “Chinese DH”.
>
> We plan to invite at least one representative from China, Hongkong and Taiwan to speak for 10 min to provide the audience with a quick overview of activities, followed by a 15 min roundtable discussion with the speakers and one or two GO::DH members. Possible questions to explore: What are the prospects for further national or regional organization in East Asia? How can we make better use of existing structures to further the globalization of Chinese DH? How viable, e.g., would be a panel in Chinese at the next DH?
