Speaker Series: the Chinese Typewriter by Professor Thomas Mullaney

On April 6, Professor Thomas Mullaney, from Stanford's Department of History, spoke to an audience comprising FACES members, undergraduates, graduates, and staff members at the East Asian Library.  Mullaney shared reflections on his research about the history and development of the Chinese typewriter, which, Mullaney argued, has not received its due attention.  Citing the scarcity of centralized repositories for information pertaining to the history of Chinese information technology, Mullaney called for the creation of a museum to house archival materials necessary to further research in the field.
