 The more members the more alphabets... "Multialphabetism" in the EU 

posted by Julia 16 years ago

A conference with the title "Delivering Multialphabetism to the European citizen“ (pdf) will take place in Brussels on 31 January 2008. Topics discussed will be the introduction of multialphabetism into the EU databases and the latest developments in pan-European keyboard features. Sounds too technical?? Have you ever thought about the legal problems resulting from the fact that a name cannot be writte correctly on a keyboard or with a software not able to compose certain special characters? I had not, to be honest, and I was impressed to learn that the incompatibility of different character sets used on European computer could have other far-reaching consequences for people, such as their discrimination on the ground of their nationality and language.

Manach in Le Monde, websites, blogs and communication through chats enable people on both sides of the Israeli-Lebanese border to follow the war and its consequences in more direct and personal way.

As I usually communicate in English about blogs and blogging, I had not really noticed the big discussions in Germany/Austria on "der Blog" or "das Blog" (cf. Taggesschau report). According to the new Duden, both forms can be used: neuter (das) or masculine (der). For the word "email" ("E-Mail" in German) or "sms", the use of the article can vary geographically: feminine (die) in Germany and neuter (das) in Austria/Switzerland (cf. Duden FAQ).

In the recently released Media Online report on the media situation in Bosnia-Herzegovina in 2005 Radenko Udovicic, Head of the Research and Analysis Section of Media Plan, writes about the problems of the public radio-television. A considerable number of people in Bosnia-Herzegovina do not feel that their views are represented by the public broadcasters, and in consequence refuse to pay the broadcast license fee of 3 euro/month - the most important source of funding for the public broadcasters (besides international donor money).

I just came back from Vienna where Beni and I attended the third workshop of the Emergenzen/Emergence seminar series of Kakanien revisited: Media in Central and South East Europe since 1945. I very much enjoyed the discussions hovering around questions like: are media in SEE/CE victims of a Western colonisation/domination? what does professionalism in the media sector mean concretely in SEE/CE? what is our definition of media and how does it apply to media in SEE/CE? Click on "more" to read the abstract of our presentation on Developments in the media landscape in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosova/o. Besides the programme of the workshop, you can find abstracts of several presentations on the Kakanien website: internet in Bulgaria, Vienna on Film, media as a propaganda tool in Bulgaria.
