Digital Resources for Cultural Heritage (Special session of GURT 2019)

Please join us for a one-day workshop on Digital Humanities resources for cultural heritage at GURT 2019 (the Georgetown University Roundtable on Languages and Linguistics), to be held on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at Georgetown University in Washington, DC (note that GURT will span three days, March 29-31, but this special session will be held on Saturday). This session will focus on methods and strategies for representing underrepresented cultures in archival collections, corpora and online databases, making data that is otherwise difficult to access, easily accessible online. Additionally, the session will consider digital tools that can be used for promoting native language use and learning, particularly among underrepresented groups, and historical heritage languages. This session will consist of an invited panel discussion, as well as paper and poster presentations. The call for papers is below.
