Digital Humanities in Asia Pacific – a Progress Report

      Although still in an early stage of development, digital humanities has made tremendous stride in Asia Pacific in recent years. The countries in this region, with their tremendous diversities in culture, language, history, and social and economic structure, have each developed its own unique path to digital humanities.
      At the same time, however, there are issues and challenges that are common to all. In this talk we will give an overview of some of the current activities in Asia Pacific countries.
      We will explore, to the best of our knowledge, their commonalities and differences, and will discuss how to overcome some of the problems together through an international organization such as the CenterNet.
