Chinese Graves screen shot

A faculty-led project developed by the Stanford Libraries' Center for Interdisciplinary Digital Research (CIDR) was recently featured in Stanford Report, which describes it thus: “...a digital humanities project led by Stanford historian Tom Mullaney is creating a map that illustrates the ongoing and multifaceted impact of funeral reform and grave relocation in China. In the last 15 years, grave relocation has been taking place in China on a massive scale. To date, some 15 million deceased people's remains have been moved.” CIDR developers David McClure and Karl Grossner, together with a small SUL team, have been working on the project with Professor Mullaney over the past 18 months, and Mullaney presented a synopsis of the project at the Stanford Libraries’ annual donor event in October, 2015.

SUL Rosette

From the Stanford Report, “Stanford doctoral candidate Adrienne Rose Johnson says contemporary diet advice idealizes lifestyles of the past in ways that contribute to global health problems. Johnson's study is the first academic analysis of diet literature.”  In 2013, Johnson’s essay entitled "Collecting the Commonplace: The Promises of American Diet Literature" was awarded one of the Byra J. and William P. Wreden Prizes for Collecting Books and Related Materials, administered by the Stanford Libraries.
