The project is part of the Western Modern History Seminar in the Department of History at Sophia University.
Students collect and examine historical materials related to the history of Sophia University. Based on the historical materials in the “Historical Materials of Sophia University,” we are investigating the biographies of university staff, including past presidents and faculty members, as well as their activities inside and outside the university. By making full use of the GIS and network visualization tools of the JBDB, we aim to trace the these activities.
