The Language of Art and Cultural Heritage

A Plurilingual and Digital Perspective

Editor(s): Ana Pano Alamán

Book Description

Communicating art and cultural heritage has become a crucial and challenging task, since these sectors, together with tourism heritage, represent a key economic resource worldwide. In order to activate this economic and social potential, art and cultural heritage need to be disseminated through effective communicative strategies. Adopting a wide variety of digital humanities approaches and a plurilingual perspective, the essays gathered in this book provide an extensive and up-to-date overview of digital linguistic resources and research methods that will contribute to the design and implementation of such strategies. Cultural and artistic content curators, specialised translators in the fields of art, architecture, tourism and web documentaries, researchers in art history and tourism communication, and cultural heritage management professionals, among others, will find this book extremely useful due to its provision of some concrete applications of innovative methods and tools for the study and dissemination of art and heritage knowledge.
