The digital humanities have undergone rapid development and created plenty of new opportunities and possibilities for the academic fields in recent decades. The latest research of digital humanities focuses not only on data accumulation but also on rethinking and revising various topics in Chinese humanities. With the aid of datafication, the study of Chinese cultural materials in digital form goes far beyond the Chinese-speaking world. To facilitate discussions on the current development of digital humanities and to provoke further reflections, CityU's Department of Chinese and History (CAH) organised a workshop entitled "Rethinking the Datafication of Culture in the Chinese World: An Online Workshop on the Digital Humanities" on 18 June 2021.
