Panel: Social Annotation With World Languages
2:30–4pm ET, Thursday 24 June 2021
Texts come in many languages, and our thinking and conversations about what we read do too. Join us to hear how educators are using social annotation with students to read in different languages, and then extend reading into discussion in the margins, where any language is possible. The panel will be moderated by Nate Angell and feature speakers Federico Pianzola and Rosario Rogel-Salazar.
- Federico Pianzola, Marie Skłodowska Curie Researcher at the University of Milano-Bicocca (Italy) and Sogang University (South Korea): Federico Pianzola's (he/him @fpianz) main research interests are Narrative Theory and Digital Humanities. He likes to explore the interdisciplinary (non-)dialogue in narrative studies (n. analysis; n. inquiry; n. therapy; folk psychology; transmedia storytelling). He also works on the impact of digital technology on reading (digital social reading; VR) and on Contemporary Italian Literature, especially on Primo Levi.
- Rosario Rogel-Salazar, Professor at the Political and Social Sciences Faculty, Universidad Autónoma del Estado de México: Rosario Rogel-Salazar's (she/her @rosariorogel) specialties include social theory, editorial scientific processes, open access and scientific communication. She has collaborated in the development of current methods of evaluation of academic publications, such as the current law for open access in México and is a member of the Editorial Board of the Colegio de la Frontera Norte and Universidad Juárez Autónoma de Tabasco. Since its foundation she coordinates the Red Iberoamericana de Editores de Revistas de Estudios Territoriales (RIER).
- Moderator: Nate Angell, Director of Marketing, Hypothesis: Nate Angell (he/him @xolotl) is an evangelist who connects people, ideas, and technologies to make things better, now at Hypothesis, the mission-driven organization that stewards open, standards-based annotation technologies and practices.

- Analytics on annotation in Spanish from Diego de la Hera: (from 2020, so may be outdated by now): Spanish is the second most spoken native language, and the fourth most spoken overall, with around 90% of its speakers living in the Americas. However, although 4.2% of websites online are in Spanish (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Languages_used_on_the_Internet), of 85,000 public annotations in Hypothesis in 2020, less than 2% were made on Spanish-written websites (https://github.com/diegodlh/hstats). And although Spanish is the third language in number of users online, with 8% of Internet users (https://www.internetworldstats.com/stats7.htm), in 2020 only 5% of active Hypothesis users annotated Spanish-written websites, a fraction that goes further down to 2.5% for monolingual users (i.e., users who annotate websites in only one language).
