Chinese Text Project
Créé et développé par Donald Sturgeon, post-doctorant au Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies (université de Harvard), le Chinese Text Project est une bibliothèque numérique interactive, en ligne et en libre-accès, de textes chinois datant de la période des Royaumes combattants (Ve siècle av. J.-C.) jusqu’à la période républicaine.
The Chinese Text Project is an online open-access digital library that makes pre-modern Chinese texts available to readers and researchers all around the world. The site attempts to make use of the digital medium to explore new ways of interacting with these texts that are not possible in print. With over thirty thousand titles and more than five billion characters, the Chinese Text Project is also the largest database of pre-modern Chinese texts in existence. The heart of the site is the ancient text database, which contains the full text of various Chinese texts of philosophical, historical, or linguistic interest from the pre-Qin era through to the Han dynasty and beyond.
The goal of this site is to present accurate and accessible copies of ancient (in particular pre-Qin and Han dynasty) Chinese texts in an organized and searchable format, and to make the best possible use of modern technology to aid in the study and research of these texts, so making them accessible to the widest possible audience.
This site is available in several versions: English or Chinese interface, and traditional or simplified characters. You can change these at any time using the links at the top left-hand corner of every page.
