http://u.osu.edu/chan.9/   (new home page, as of 19 April 2014)

- The web server that houses Humanities faculty's personal website will be retired in a few months. Beginning on 19 April 2014, the main contents of this website will gradually be moved to its new site at u.osu.edu. All updated changes will be made at the new website only, so please make use of the new website.

ics main page This website offers information (updated through 15 April 2014) on my current year's course offerings (two-thirds way down this page) as well as links to my online course syllabi and other pages pertaining to my teaching and research. Immediately below are annotated links to websites that I have served as webmaster over the years. Besides websites that I maintain, I also assist from time to time with the Institute for Chinese Studies (ICS) section of the East Asian Studies Center (EASC) website at OSU. The Center is under the directorship of Professor Etsuyo Yuasa (as of 1 September 2013). The EASC website houses information on the Center as well as its satellite Institutes for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean Studies. I have, since 1 December 2010, been serving as the ICS Director. The Institutes and the East Asian Studies Center are, in turn, under of the auspices of the University's Office of International Affairs and College of Arts and Sciences.

ICS seal East Asian Psycholinguistics Colloquium (EAPC) - 13 & 15 October 2012   (Flyer)
Website: https://sites.google.com/site/eapc1osu/

Organized by the Institute for Chinese Studies (ICS), the Graduate Association of Chinese Linguistics (GACL), and the Institute for Japanese Studies (IJS), the East Asian Psycholinguistics Colloquium (EAPC) brought together psycholinguists working on East Asian languages and dialects to share their state-of-the-art research. Topics covered in these talks include sentence processing (especially of relative clauses in Mandarin Chinese), speech production and comprehension, and language acquisition. There was also a Graduate Student Poster Session. The invited talks and the poster session took place on Saturday, 13 October 2012 and on Monday afternoon, 15 October 2012. For more details, see the East Asian Studies Center's event page on the East Asian Psycholinguistics Colloquium (EAPC). The page includes the program prepared by the co-chairs of the EAPC Organizing Committee, Professor Zhiguo Xie and graduate student, Seth Wiener. The Second East Asian Psycholinguistics Colloquium (EAPC2) will be held on 8 March 2014 at University of Chicago.

Online since 24 April 1996 (and the current url as of 12 May 2004), this website contains my annotated links to online resources on Chinese studies (culture, language, linguistics, etc.). It was the host site for NACCL and NACCL-20 until NACCL has its own website (as of 18 April 2012), as shown below. It was also the host site for CHINOPERL until it also has its own website (as of 1 May 2012), as shown further below.

-- a dedicated website for NACCL as of 18 April 2012

The new NACCL website provides information on past and upcoming NACCL conferences. It also houses NACCL Proceedings Online, which serves as an online depository for e-publications of NACCL Proceedings beginning with NACCL-20 in 2008. That first set of NACCL Proceedings (NACCL-20 in 2008) -- together with the NACCL-20 conference website -- is now archived and housed in the NACCL website. The NACCL website was temporarily placed within ChinaLinks.osu.edu on 23 January 2010 for dissemination of information concerning the NACCL conference.)

Asian American Studies Home Page Back to top Graduate Association of Chinese Linguistics (GACL) Home Page

ICS Grad Forum The Graduate Association of Chinese Linguistics (GACL) is a registered student organization at The Ohio State University, with the goal of promoting the linguistic study of the Chinese language. (I serve as the faculty advisor to this formally-registered, OSU student organization, and our new faculty member in Chinese linguistics, Zhiguo Xie, serves as co-advisor.) Research interests cover the full range of fields within Chinese linguistics — its norm and dialect variants, spoken and written forms, synchronic and diachronic aspects, and theoretical as well as applied linguistics and their pedagogical applications. In addition to meetings and informal get-togethers, it also sponsors talks and guest lectures, and other exciting linguistics activities, such as a new e-working papers in Chinese linguistics.

Past major activities include assisting with the 20th North American Conference on Chinese Linguistics (NACCL-20) in spring 2008, hosting lectures, and co-sponsoring the ICS Graduate Forum: New Horizons in Chinese Linguistics Research (Friday, 20 May 2011 -- see flyer), an inaugural event organized by the Institute for Chinese Studies that ushered in the ICS Graduate Forum series. Recent events include contributing in the organization of the Workshop on Innovations in Cantonese Linguistics (WICL), which took place on 16-17 March 2012, and the East Asian Psycholinguistics Colloquium (EAPC), held on 13 and 15 October 2012 (Flyer).

-- a new, dedicated website for CHINOPERL (as of 1 May 2012)!
  (CHINOPERL Webmaster: January - December 2010; Website Editor: January 2011 -   )

naccl-20 logo The Conference on Chinese Oral and Performing Literature (CHINOPERL) is a scholarly organization founded in 1969 by Yuen Ren Chao (趙元任, 1892-1982) — who gave the organization its acronym — as well as Harold Shadick (1915-1992), Cyril Birch (1925- ), and a few other established scholars. Membership consists of scholars in the humanities and the social sciences who recognize the significance of oral performance to Chinese literature (popular story-telling, opera, ceremonial chanting, folksong, etc.). Chinoperl is devoted to the research, analysis and interpretation of oral and performing traditions, broadly defined, and their relationship to China's culture and society.

The CHINOPERL website was originally created and unveiled on 9 February 2010 under the ChinaLinks.osu.edu website.

Teaching and Computer Technology:
Since the mid-1990's, computer technology and Chinese computing have been integral parts of students' coursework in the courses that I teach. Both linguistic and culture courses are taught in multimedia classrooms, which have audiovisual equipment and a computer with internet connection. Recently-taught courses that heavily integrate computer technology into course materials and assignments include my offering of Chinese 231: Traditional Chinese Culture, Chinese 580: The Chinese Language: Description and Analysis, Chinese 5474: Chinese Opera, Chinese 5380: Introduction to Chinese Linguistics, Chinese 782: Chinese Phonology, Chinese 782: Modern Chinese Dialects, and Chinese 784: Chinese Syntax, as well as the one-time offering of Chinese 694: Group Studies — Chinese Computing (Sp '00) and Chinese 889: Seminar on Databases and Corpora for Chinese Linguistic Research (Wi '01), Also see my Instructions for Concordancing East Asian E-Texts using Concordance, my 2002 JCLTA article, "Concordancers and concordances: Tools for Chinese language teaching and research" (PDF, 1.03 MB), as well as my 2004 JCLTA review, "Google Search Engine: UTF-8 and Searches in Chinese."
