Subject: Distant Reading across Languages (DRaL) Dear All, We’ve recently launched the results of the proof-of-concept project on DRaL (Distant Reading across Languages): Live Dataset: https://dral.kdl.kcl.ac.uk/ About: https://www.kdl.kcl.ac.uk/our-work/distant-reading/ I’d like to thank our colleagues from KDL for sharing the same vision, burning the midnight oil, and getting it out under all the pressures that we faced together 😊: Arianna Ciula, Goeffroy Noel, Ginestra Ferraro, and our former MA DH student Natasha Romanova who braved the internship on this project. The current dataset features the translations of William Faulkner’s /The Sound and the Fury / into Lithuanian, Polish (two versions), Russian (two versions), and French. Yet we are interested in adding more languages, especially smaller and less widespread ones into which William Faulkner has been translated. We believe it is important now more than ever to turn our attention to systematically under-represented languages and cultures, and their discontent in the times of geopolitical crises, the heightened nationalist rhetorics, and linguistic hegemonies. Since this is the first phase of our bigger plans for a larger scale project, we are interested in crowdsourcing Faulkner's translations into other languages. Please help us spread the word about the project and about our call for people with the knowledge of languages other than English to contact Gabriele at email@example.com.
