Academic PositionGraduate Student
Hi, I'm Matt Mewhinney. I am a native of San Francisco and I am in my first year of a PhD program in Japanese literature at UC Berkeley.
Why You Joined the Lab:
I would like to create a project on kanshi (classical Chinese verse in Japan) sometime during my five years here. I hope the lab will open more avenues of communication with people who can help me think creatively about the utility of classical language and poetics in the formations of nationhood and modernity. As a separate project, I am interested in digitizing all classical Chinese poetry and creating a database for specialists and non-specialists alike.
