Digital Cultural Empowerment Now Available in 23 Languages

This blog applauds the special efforts of the MLMC committee, its chair Elisabeth Burr, and all the volunteers who translated the DH2014 call for proposals in 23 languages. It is the first time that so many languages have been supported at the proposal level, featuring many non-Western languages and other languages spoken by only small populations, such as the Romontsch sursilvan, one of the four official languages spoken in Switzerland.

We are very grateful for this “inverted and postive Babel” which makes us sensitive to the possibilities offered by digital culture: to build bridges between various people and to make visible cultures usually considered as minor in canonical historical Western print and academic culture.
