selection of principal investigators and researchers in its programs The principal investigators must be either : Over the past hundred years, scholars of the Asian humanities and social sciences communities have tended to interpret Asian tradition and Asian contemporary developments on the basis of European or American theories In so doing, they overlook the fact that western discourses are not necessary well-suited to providing answers to the fundamental problems of the eastern world In response to this, IHS has adopted a new perspective based on indigenous approaches that are more in tune with the East Asian heritage within this new perspective IHS research programs are focus not solely on some lofty idea of pure truth but on gaining a practical understanding of East Asian Confucianism the rule of law, democracy, concepts of self, humanism and other values Though the cultures of East Asian have certain characteristics in common there is also considerable cultural variation from place to place Therefore, IHS research programs are designed to build on features that the various regions of the East Asian have in common while highlighting the diversion characteristics of each one IHS is rigorously administer from inviting principal investigators and forming clear objectives to evaluating and launching its research programs The present program is the first large scale research program to conduct wider Confucian studies from an East Asian perspective This program centers on the universal values of the East Asian Confucianisms and their influence on different regions The program also focuses on the political and culture identity of Confucians The research conducted by the IHS team has received high acclaim both domestically and internationally

to investigate such issues as the adoption of new method of choosing immigrants This program attempts to objectively narrate the developments and changes taking place in contemporary China in this new era of arising East Asia It also intends to uncover the different qualities specific to each research group while each conducts its own special line of inquiry on China This program plans to utilize the first hand materials of Taiwan studies for the construction of a database on Taiwan history In the future of this program will undertake horizontal integration with IHS's other programs to provide a data integration platform with research tools The database will make it possible for scholars to perform large-scale computer operations and analytic research so as to highlight the similarities and differences among the countries of East Asia on specific issues This platform will include traditional Japanese and Korean culture as well as their contemporary political and economic developments Taking the broader perspective of the developing East Asia as a foundation This database will provide IHS's projects with the latest materials in Japanese, and Korean studies IHS will continue to host the visiting scolar program and to organize seminars, academic symposia, domestic and international conferences as well as other interactive academic activiities and the humanities and social sciences

The Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities was established at the University of Virginia in 1992, with a major grant from IBM and a multi-year commitment of support from the University.

IATH’s founders are in humanities computing, digital scholarship, and academic administration. Beginning in 1992 a steering committee of scholars, including Edward Ayers, Alan Batson, Jerome McGann, Kendon Stubbs and William Wulf managed IATH. A search committee commissioned by the steering committee carried out the search for a director of the institute. John Unsworth was selected, and his term began September 1, 1993.[1]

IATH has generated over $10.7 million in grant funding and gifts in kind since it began operations. Much of this funding has come from Federal agencies and private foundations, and has gone to support faculty research and teaching across the University.
