This public workshop is aimed at discussing and developing recommendations for embedding multilingualism within and beyond the UK and Ireland’s Digital Humanities communities. The workshop will include invited contributions from digital humanities researchers who have taken a leading role in furthering multilingual digital humanities research locally and internationally. Those who attend the workshop will also be invited to share their own ideas and recommendations for raising the visibility of and expanding multilingual DH, which will inform the development of a report to be shared with the UK-Ireland Digital Humanities Association.
