Digital Humanities and internet policy: the case of the Translation & Transliteration of Contact Information PDP Working Group

Start: Dec 2, 2015 5:30:00 PM
End: Dec 2, 2015 6:30:00 PM

In this talk Chris Dillon will outline how his studies of Japanese and other languages gave him the skill set necessary to co-chair an Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) Policy Development Process working group. The Translation & Transliteration of Contact Information PDP WG had representatives based all over the world from registrar, registry, IP, lawyer and other stakeholder groups. This is an example of how academic Digital Humanities can affect the development of the internet and have impact on sectors outside academia, and how other sectors can open up new areas for academic research.
