#Right2Left at #DHSI2019 (Digital Humanities Summerschool 2019) 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. Organizing committee is soliciting proposals for a half-day workshop to take place on 8 June 2019, 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
