ISAC@DLSU Call for Photos of Christian Chinese Couplets
for the 2024 Chinese New Year
The ISAC@DLSU Digital Humanities Project, a collaboration between the Initiative for the Study of Asian Catholics and De La Salle University Manila, aims to build and preserve digital collections of texts, manuscripts, audiovisual objects, and photographs pertinent to the scientific study of Asian Catholics. As part of this digital humanities project, we are launching the Call for Photos of Christian Chinese Couplets for the 2024 Chinese New Year celebration to document, collect and preserve photos representing how Christian Chinese around the world decorate their houses and spaces of worship with the New Year couplets. The ISAC@DLSU Digital Collection of Christian Chinese Couplets aims to systematically document photos as part of material artifacts to preserve culture and faith.
Call for Photos
We thus welcome submission and contribution of photos of couplets located at the door of your household, or located in your living spaces, churches, shrines, etc. Help us build this online collection and document this rich tradition. Please note, however, that ISAC@DLSU has the right to select the images that are most of interest for the online depository and that not all submissions might get selected.
