The Constitutional Revision in Japan Research Project at the Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies has recently launched a visual timeline on Japan’s Constitutional Discussion. We invite you to explore this new feature and other materials on the project website: https://projects.iq.harvard.edu/crrp
In sharing this new resource, Makiko Ueda (Constitutional Revision Research Project) and Katherine Matsuura (Japan Digital Research Center) will lead a hands-on informal workshop on creating timelines. Participants will be introduced toTimelineJS, an open source tool that enables anyone to create visually enticing, interactive timelines using a Google spreadsheet.
These timelines can be embedded in Canvas course websites, personal blogs, presentations, and various other media. Additional examples include:
• NCC: Highlights of the Past 25 Years (North American Coordinating Council on Japanese Library Resources)
• Black Space Portal (Brandeis University)
For this workshop, we will be creating a timeline of the Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies. We welcome everyone to bring their laptops and follow along as we travel back in time.
