About the Project

Project term: April, 2017–March, 2020

The Japanese tradition of Oriental studies has been characterized by its emphasis on joint reading and interpretation of historical source materials. Since university study rooms where graduate students, junior researchers, and scholars used to gather were the main reading forum, the recent deterioration of research environment and educational facilities at Japanese universities and the accompanying rapid decrease in the number of graduate students in the humanities have had a devastating effect on the foundation of Japanese Oriental studies. Regional universities in particular encounter great difficulties in maintaining traditional reading circles. The third round of the boundary-crossing approach on Ancient Chinese Slip and Tablet Documents is intended to build up a new interuniversity source-reading platform by utilizing television conference technology and conducting dedicated workshops for graduate students and junior researchers. Our joint source reading continues to focus on administrative documents written on wood tablets excavated from Liye, Jianshuijinguan and other Ch’in and Han sites. We attempt to revive these precious witnesses of Chinese ancient society by taking into account the variety of non-textual information they carry, without, of course, neglecting the organic connection between their social functions and the characters written on them.
