“I recently resubmitted a final copy of an abstract that was accepted for the "Disrupting Digital Monolingualism" workshop in June at Kings College which will now be a virtual workshop taking place on the 17th and 26th of June,” says Ms Bukula.
One of the areas of research that is particularly interesting to her is the influence that multilingualism has on the quality of Higher Education. She says that it is important to her to try to see and find ways in which South African indigenous languages could be developed so that they are in a better standard for better research opportunities.
On the topic of Digital Humanties Ms Bukula believes the following:
“Digital Humanities in Africa will allow for more collaborations across borders and not limit the type of research that is done within the African context.”
She further says that Digital Humanities related projects will assist with the preservation of African text, which can be also digitized and used in digital research and projects.
