[multilingual-dh] Facilitators for DH 2020 forum?

Thanks Quinn! It looks great to me. I put my name down as a facilitator in case an extra person is needed :)
As for text corpora, I created a collection of Italian ethnic newspapers published in the USA between 1898 and 1920. OCR is not great, especially for the earliest issues, but nevertheless I’ve done some pretty good analyses which have yielded interesting results so far. The corpus is called ChroniclItaly and it is available open access here<>. There is also a second version of the same collection tagged for entities, also open access here<>.

Thank you!

Best wishes,

Thanks Quinn! I'll make sure to submit the proposal first thing on Monday morning, and I'll ping this mailing list in case there are any unexpected questions/hurdles during the submission process. The draft looks great as is to me!

Dear all,

We’ve got a revised draft ready for the forum submission, and Geoff Bacon has offered to submit it. Is there anyone else besides Svenja Gülden who’d like to be listed as a co-facilitator on the submission? I think we can have up to four.

I’ll leave the doc open until Sunday, October 13th for additional facilitators. All you need to do is leave your name, email address, institution, and ORCID. After that, I’ll turn it over to Geoff for actual submission to ADHO.

In the meantime, I’ve been talking with some folks about how we can expand our website in a rational and sustainable way (using Jekyll and GitHub pages). I’ve got a variety of OCR resources collected, but I’m short on time to rework the site for it until the end of the month. But more should be coming shortly thereafter! And if you have suggestions for OCR tools or text corpora, let me know and we can start a Google Doc to collect them until the website is restructured a bit.
