John Whitman | Cornell University presents the 2nd of four text readings on:
Shōjū 昌住 (fl. 9th century), Preface to the Japanese dictionary Shinsen jikyō 新撰字鏡
CCCC is a reading group for students and scholars with interest in
premodern Sinographic text.
All are welcome, at any level of experience with classical Chinese.
At each session, one participant presents a text in classical Chinese. Attendees discuss historical, literary, linguistic, and other aspects of the text, and work together to resolve difficulties in comprehension and translation.
Presentations include works of all sorts, from the earliest times to the twentieth century.
No preparation required: all texts will be distributed at the meeting.
