Training Course to Decipher Japanese Cursive Script (Kuzushiji) with the ARC Transcription Support and Archiving System

<Tutor guidance provided>

We are pleased to announce that the Training Course for the ARC Transcription Support and Archiving System for Japanese Cursive Script (kuzushiji) with tutor guidance will be held in FY2023.

This training course will be conducted online using the ARC databases of early Japanese books, ukiyo-e, and old documents, as well as the ARC Kuzushiji Transcription Support and Archiving System, allowing participants to practice reading kuzushiji anytime, anywhere, and at their own pace. Features include an AI-enabled function to read kuzushiji and online guidance provided by experienced tutors.

Unlike one-off kuzushiji courses, you can improve your transcription skills while you read through the books and materials independently.

We welcome applications from beginners and intermediate-level participants and those who wish to support a project to transcribe a specific work or group of works.

Participation is free of charge.

This training course is supported by the Consortium for Global Japanese Studies FY2023.
