Digital Publishing Initiative
Stanford University Press, with generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon
Foundation, is developing a groundbreaking publishing program in the digital
humanities and social sciences. By publishing digital projects that are peer-
reviewed, edited, designed, marketed, and held to the same rigorous standards
as our print monographs, we are revolutionizing how scholars work online
and how their research is accredited by the academy, setting new standards for
twenty-first-century academic publishing.


The Chinese Deathscape
Thomas S. Mullaney 
The Chinese Deathscape examines the phenomenon of grave relocation in late imperial
and modern China, a campaign that has led to the exhumation and reburial of 10 mil-
lion corpses in the past decade alone and has transformed China’s graveyards into sites
of acute personal, social, political, and economic contestation. Building on a bespoke
spatial analysis platform, three historians of the Chinese world analyze the phenom-
enon of grave relocation via essays that move from the local to the global. Framing these
essays are contributions by the editor and the platform developer reflecting on the methods
applied in this original approach to Chinese history.

Filming Revolution
Alisa Lebow
Filming Revolution investigates documentary and independent filmmaking in Egypt
since the Arab Spring, bringing together the collective wisdom and creative strategies
of thirty filmmakers, artists, activists, and archivists. Rather than merely building an
archive of video interviews, Alisa Lebow constructs a collaborative project, connecting
her interviewees in conversation to investigate questions about the evolving format
of political documentary. With its constellatory interactive design, Filming Revolution
makes a point about the experience of the revolution, its fragmented development, and
its shifting meaning, thereby advancing arguments about political documentary via
both content and form.
