The Chinese Deathscape

Grave Reform in Modern China


The following archival versions of The Chinese Deathscape represent descriptive, remediated, and/or restructured publication content. When browser and server technologies advance beyond the ability to support the original publication code, these resources provide alternative ways of engaging with the publication.


The web archive presents a high-fidelity, interactive experience much like the experience of reading the live web publication. The original source code is not visible in the web archive version, so users wanting to inspect the source via a browser's web developer tools should be aware that they are viewing a remediated content package instead of the original web structure and content and application code.


The Stanford Digital Repository collection (see full contents list with links to individual assets) contains the application code content database. In raw form these files are not interactive and are rarely human-readable. Also included in the collection are a text-only (non-interactive, no maps) version of the project, project images, and datasets. Please consult the documentation for a description of the original interactive user experience, including how text-to-map linkages and map data appeared in context of the full publication.


The documentation serves as a descriptive account of the original publication's user experience, technical requirements, structure, and sources. It includes a screencast narrated and recorded by the author and is best used as a record of the project's look, feel, and functionality in the event the live project and its high-fidelity preservation copies are no longer accessible.
