Bodies and Structures 2.0: Deep-Mapping Modern East Asian History

Bodies and Structures is a digital humanities project by Japan scholars David Ambaras (North Carolina State University) and Kate McDonald (University of California, Santa Barbara). It seeks to map connections over time and space that have been formative in the history of East Asia. The website hosts five teaching modules and includes a guide suggesting ways in which it can be used as a teaching resource.
