As mentioned in a previous blog post, the Scholarly Communications and Copyright Office was awarded a Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund grant for the 2018/2019 cycle. With this grant funding, we have in turn granted out smaller amounts to support faculty creation of OER and open textbooks.

We are now proud to introduce the first product to come out of this project, Digital Meijis: Revisualizing Modern Japanese History at 150. This collection of visual essays has been adapted from The Meiji at 150 Project. Led by Tristan Grunow, Assistant Professor without Review, History Department and Naoko Kato, Japanese Language Librarian, Asian Library, this initiative celebrates the 150th anniversary of Japan’s 1868 Meiji Restoration and seeks to increase collaboration between scholars at universities across Canada, Japan, and the United States, strengthening UBC’s ties to Japanese studies programs around the region in disciplines including, and beyond, history, as well as magnifying the presence of UBC and UBC’s Japanese collections in the field of Japanese studies in North America.
