Paul Spence

My research currently focuses on digital publishing, global perspectives on digital scholarship and interactions between modern languages and digital culture. Through my work on the Language Acts and World-making project (, I focus in particular on interactions between languages, multilingualism, linguistic diversity and digital practice. I research digital transformations in how we engage with languages, while also analysing the power of language to disrupt digital monolingualism in knowledge infrastructures, methods and data .
It is widely accepted that fields such as digital humanities and digital culture studies have a ‘language and geocultural diversity’ problem. Drawing together conceptual and practical frameworks for understanding digital language diversity, I challenge “language indifference” (Polezzi) in digital study and propose new transcultural and translingual models for digital practice.
