In this episode, we speak with Isabelle Zaugg, a postdoctoral researcher at Columbia University. She studies minority languages, and the ways in which digital technologies can contribute to their decline and even extinction. What are digitally disadvantaged languages? Why should we care about rare languages not getting the support they need to thrive online? And what can be done to bring them to digital vitality? Zaugg walks us through what's at stake when languages do not enjoy digital support.
