This section of xiulong.it/Dongba gathers heterogeneous material, all about Naxi people and culture and Dongba tradition study.
When I started study subjects like "Naxi culture", "Dongba tradition" etc..., I immediately understand that I was approaching to a wide gamma of arguments and thematic.
Many works available (pls., cfr. available resources) sincerely enriched me and gave me something I feel precious and true about Naxi people history, Dongba tradition, manuscripts and their writing systems. According to Mathieu I feel previously works as land-mark opera to look at, getting precious elements and different point-of-views for a personal step-by-step wider comprehension of Naxi people and history of human cultures of Lijiang region.
While I was studying material collected from everywhere, I used to wrote down my notes and try some draft-works, like TEI experimenting for Dongba manuscripts encoding and IMT - Image Markup Tool for manuscripts page close markup.
At today, thanks both to the scores and the flops of such attempts, my study is focused about:
CL.A.U.D.I.A. - Computational and Updatable Dongbas Iconographic Archive, project focused about implementation of index plates of pictographs sorting by ICONOGRAPHY and related dictionary
Do.M.En.I. - Dongba Manuscripts Encoding Initiative, project focused about implementation of annotated corpora of Dongba manuscripts according to TEI standard and a converged index of corpora in unique catalog
CL.A.U.D.I.A. and Do.M.En.I. both are sperimental works, but well sctructurated and oriented to better-defined scores.
In this section I'm collecting drafts-works and study notes previous to CL.A.U.D.I.A. and Do.M.En.I., documenting how and whence CL.A.U.D.I.A. and Do.M.En.I. sprout out.
