Chinese in the Digital Age by Thomas Mullaney (History, EA Languages and Cultures, Stanford)

For over 70 years, Chinese script has been a driving force in shaping the digital age and pushing it beyond familiar alphabetical ecologies. Western-designed screens, printers, keyboards, character encoding schemes, and more have all been forced to adapt to accommodate the intricacies of the world’s one major non-alphabetical writing system. Despite China’s position as a global leader in technology, however, these ecologies of Chinese computing have long remained uncharted territories–until now. Join Stanford historian Thomas S. Mullaney on a tour of Chinese in the digital age.
