Subject: CFP for #Right2Left Workshop (DHSI, 7 June 2020) In cooperation with the Digital Humanities Summer Institute, a workshop on Right-to-Left languages and digital scholarship will be held on 7 June 2020. #Right2Left at #DHSI2020 is interested in exploring challenges, opportunities, and implications that are distinctive to digital work in languages written from right to left such as Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, and Syriac. We are soliciting proposals for a half-day workshop, between the first and second week of DHSI. Topics for exploration might include: -multi-directional texts -digital methods and RTL scripts -RTL workarounds -pre-Unicode histories of RTL digital environments -LTR transliteration/approximation of RTL languages -digital literacies in RTL environments -minimal RTL computing -digital pedagogy for RTL languages -RTL TEI XML -localisation for RTL cultures -rethinking DH for RTL languages -RTL digital cultures and the humanities -RTL digitality for research and pedagogy in the social sciences -RTL digital cultures and public users behaviour The format is yet to be determined, but the workshop might include presentations, lightning talks of work in progress or future research ideas, field reports, brainstorming sessions, tool demos, and an opportunity for social networking. If you are interested in participating, please send your expression of interest indicating both your topic and the desired format of your participation to firstname.lastname@example.org by 21 January 2020.
