Anatomia 1522-1867: Anatomical Plates from the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library.

Abstract: 
This collection features approximately 4500 full page plates and other significant illustrations of human anatomy. Each illustration has been fully indexed using medical subject headings (MeSH), and techniques of illustration, artists, and engravers have been identified whenever possible. There are ninety-five individual titles represented, ranging in date from 1522 to 1867.

Anatomia is a collection of illustrations of human anatomy which are contained within published books, but the texts themselves are not included. The anatomical illustrations chosen for inclusion are, for the most part, full page plates but significant illustrations within the text are also included, as well as the title pages to the books themselves. The site is structured on two interconnected levels - the book level and the plate level.

Toronto Korean-Language Newspapers

Abstract: 
This project contains two significant Toronto Korean-language newspapers: The Minjoong Shinmoon (Jan. 1982; Jan. 1989 - Mar. 1993) and The New Korea Times (May 1982 - May 2003). The collection features approximately 7,420 pages.

To Korean immigrants in Canada, the following two newspapers are crucial sources of information on the evolution of Korean politics in both North and South Korea. They are also important research tools in the study of Toronto's Korean immigrant community. Both papers were donated on an ongoing basis to the East Asian Library by the publishers. 

This digitization project of these two newspapers is the first ever undertaken by the Cheng Yu Tung East Asian Library.

Roots and Routes: Scholarly Networks and Knowledge Production in the Pre-Modern Mediterranean and in the Digital Age

Abstract: 
The Roots and Routes Summer Institutes discuss scholarly approaches to historical interactions across linguistic, religious, and political boundaries. In addition to the conference meetings, participants engage in a variety of related Web 2.0 projects.

Current public discourse is dominated by the seemingly contradictory concepts of “the clash of civilizations” on the one hand, and the globalized digital superhighway, on the other. While scholars recognize that the digital revolution is rapidly producing its own hierarchical structures of knowledge production and circulation, we are also intensely interested in the ways in which the very nature of our scholarly networks might be transformed in the process, allowing for qualitatively different types of interaction across linguistic and disciplinary boundaries.

The Juba Project: Early Blackface Minstrelsy in Britain, 1842-1852

Abstract: 
Named after early minstrelsy's most famous and most unusual early practitioner, the Juba Project includes a collection of historical texts, images, songs, and contemporary responses, all related to minstrelsy.

White performers in blackface make-up were performing in supposed imitation of American slave culture long before 1842. But in that year these entertainers began appearing together as groups in stand-alone entertainments, minstrel shows. Originating in the north-eastern United States, they almost immediately traveled to Britain, where they were particularly popular.
