Members of Department 3 develop individual scholarship and research by coming together to cross-pollinate and strengthen our individual projects:

The department’s Digital Humanities team, working with individual researchers, develops tools to answer particular analytical needs or handle particular datasets. Such projects, such as a database of historical drugs, support particular research needs while also holding the potential for wider utility in the future.

Methods Intensive is an ongoing series of events that allow department members to develop their own skills and interests in new methods for research.

Thematic Workshops, organized by one or more department members, address departmental research themes. These workshops bring together scholars from around the world to discuss their work in a welcoming and thoughtful atmosphere. 

The Get-It-Published initiative hosts advanced predoctoral Chinese scholars within Department III, exploring the challenges and opportunities of transnational communication of historical research.
