Gian Rominger

Graduate Fellow

Gian Rominger is a Ph.D. student in the Department of East Asian Studies. He studies early Chinese intellectual and cultural history and is keen on exploring ancient texts through a new lens of DH. Due to the nature of the Chinese script, he is currently working on DIRECT (Digital Intertextual Resonances in Early Chinese Texts), a project that combines phonology and DH and which will allow identifying parallel passages based on sound across texts. He is also interested in the prosody and rhetoric in early Chinese texts, and hopes to also apply DH to these fields.
