Data science and the language question in digital humanities pedagogy: the example of Programming Historian


The main aim of this paper is to reflect on the Programming Historian’s multilingualism and internationalization strategy as well as the transition from a monolingual website to a multilingual open-access publication. The Programming Historian is currently developing as one of the first open-access multilingual digital pedagogy initiatives in Digital Humanities. Based on our experience, a critical discussion on the challenges of translating language specific and data-driven lessons, and the development of a creative strategy supporting multiculturalism and diversity seems more than appropriate.

Talk with Drs. Antonio Rojas-Castro and Anna-Maria Sichani.
