New Graduate Seminar!

Read an 18th-century Chinese novel and share it with the world! That is what advanced undergraduates and graduate students will get to do in this unique seminar. With support from the Consortium for the Study of the Premodern World's Digital Research Workshop, directed by Bell Curator Marguerite Ragnow, Professor Ann Waltner had devised a seminar in which students will both read famous novel, The Story of the Stones, also called the Dream of the Red Chamber and create an Omeka site with learning modules so that the general public, too, can learn about it. The web site, to be launched in summer 2016, will support the world premier of a new opera, commissioned by Minnesota's Chinese Heritage Foundation for the San Francisco Opera Company. The opera will debut in September 2016. Students interested in participating in this groundbreaking project may register for: Building the Dream: A Digital Humanities Project for the San Francisco Opera under the following rubrics: ALL 5920-002; HIST 5940-001; or EMS 5500-001.
