After an intellectually stimulating and challenging process of reviewing a host of tremendously compelling applications, we are delighted to report that Paul Vierthaler has accepted our invitation to take part in DHAsia 2016 as a member of the inaugural cohort of short-term residents. Paul received his PhD in 2014 at Yale University, under the direction of Tina Lu. His dissertation, completed in East Asian Languages and Literatures, is entitled “Quasi-History and Public Knowledge: A Social History of Unofficial Historical Narratives in Late-Ming and Early-Qing China.” During the 2015-2016 year, Paul is serving as a Visiting Assistant Professor and Digital Humanities Postdoctoral Fellow at Boston College. We are thrilled he is able to take part, and are busily preparing for his residency.
The full schedule for DHAsia 2016 will be announced soon.
