Stanford University Press Publishes New Interactive Scholarly Work, Latest Title in Digital Scholarship Series

From a Stanford University Libraries Blog Post by Glenn Worthey:

The Stanford Libraries’ Center for Interdisciplinary Digital Research (CIDR) is proud to share in the announcement of a new publication, by the Stanford University Press, of The Chinese Deathscape: Grave Reform in Modern China, a longstanding, major collaboration with Professor Thomas S. Mullaney of the Department of History.

This publication is the latest in SU Press’s Digital Scholarship series of interactive scholarly works, and the first fully peer-reviewed and professionally published of CIDR’s many projects in the digital humanities and computational social sciences.

Interactive scholarly works are an altogether new genre of scholarship that was first described by Karl Grossner and Elijah Meeks (both of whom were CIDR staff members at the time this project was begun) as encompassing digital works that “blur the line between archive, tool, and publication.”

Chinese Deathscape is an interactive scholarly work in the truest sense: it is not only a collection of peer-reviewed essays on a fascinating and little-explored aspect of modern Chinese history, but also a custom-built, interactive historical and geospatial data visualization.
