Abstract

This chapter seeks to chart the emergence of the digital humanities paradigm within the Chinese humanities, especially its more recent developments from
the mid-2010s onwards. These developments include the setting up of centres
devoted to digital humanities research within universities in the Greater China
region, more training in the form of courses and workshops provided to interested
parties, the proliferation of digital humanities platforms online for scholarly use,
and increasing numbers of digital humanities studies in scholarly publications.
Many mainstream scholars remain cautious towards this new research paradigm,
but they have begun to reflect on its developments in writing.
