        Subject: Disrupting Digital Monolingualism workshop report

Dear colleagues

I'm happy to announce that we have just published our report on the
Disrupting Digital Monolingualism workshop event which was held last year:

Subtitled 'A report on multilingualism in digital theory and practice', it
summarises and analyses this virtual event which aimed to map the current
state of multilingualism in digital theory and practice through, and
across, languages and cultures. In recent years, various initiatives have
aimed to address the challenges for digital linguistic diversity, including
work on biocultural diversity, endangered languages, digital cultural
studies, multilingual language technologies and global perspectives on
digital humanities. This workshop aimed to strengthen connections between
numerous overlapping digital and languages-driven conversations and

The report may interest those working on the following themes:

1. Linguistic and geocultural diversity in digital knowledge infrastructures
2. Working with multilingual methods and data
3. Transcultural and translingual approaches to digital study
4. Artificial intelligence, machine learning and NLP in language worlds

The workshop was hosted by the Language Acts & Worldmaking project with the
support of the Cross-Language Dynamics: Reshaping Community project, both
projects funded by the AHRC as part of its Open World Research Initiative.

Best wishes
