Workshop Session:

Collecting Historical “Big” Data from Chinese Local Gazetteers

5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Shih-Pei Chen

Senior Research Scholar

Max Planck Institute for the History of Science

In this workshop session, we will introduce LoGaRT, a suite of digital research tools that helps historians to study digitised local gazetteers (difangzhi 地方志). LoGaRT is designed with the philosophy of “treating the genre as a database for research inquiry” by using a large collection of digital gazetteers to statistically represent the genre. Practically, LoGaRT allows scholars to collect historical “big” data from digitised gazetteers via search or text-tagging. Once a historical dataset is collected, LoGaRT allows scholars to apply visual and statistical tools to obtain its overall distributions (the so-called “bird’s-eye view”), which also serve as reading guides to understand the dataset in depth. Having the ability to quickly collect historical data brings scholars to confront the challenge of how to best interpret such data, which will be also discussed in the workshop.

Additional materials:

For those who would like to follow along during the workshop session, you are encouraged to register for a LoGaRT account at https://logart.mpiwg-berlin.mpg.de/LGServices2/. You are also welcome to watch the hands-on tutorial videos before the session (at https://youtu.be/VdILoBhzymI), but this is not required before you join the workshop.
