CFP: Disrupting Digital Monolingualism

Call For Proposals

An international workshop on languages in critical digital theory and practice

Hosted by Department of Digital Humanities, King’s College London, 16th and 17th June 2020

This two-day workshop explores the theme of ‘Disrupting Digital Monolingualism’ and brings together leading researchers, educators, digital practitioners, language-focused professionals, policy makers and other interested parties to address the challenges of multilingualism in digital spaces and to collectively propose new models and solutions. The workshop will combine both conceptual (strategy, policy and theory) and practical perspectives (digital ecosystems, methods and tools with a focus on language).

By bringing together multiple perspectives on languages-driven digital practice, we hope the workshop will lead to new collaborations centred on multilingualism and geocultural diversity. Outcomes will be defined by attendees, but may include co-design of conceptual frameworks or practical outcomes such as prototypes or toolkits.

Key dates:

  • Call for proposals deadline: 12pm (GMT) on 16 March 2020
  • Response to proposals: 30 March 2020
  • Workshop: Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 June 2020
