    Multiple iterations of Around DH in 80 Days have emphasized the global scope of DH work. Conversations within the DH community are actively considering how postcolonial and transnational approaches to DH work can impact scholarly research endeavors. Examples include “A Research Agenda for Historical and Multilingual Optical Character Recognition” and DARIAH beyond Europe’s ongoing work. However, most of these conversations foreground research activities and rarely center the undergraduate classroom as an active site for promoting postcolonial, global DH pedagogy. The most-recent gathering of the New England MLA included a roundtable on Digital Humanities in Foreign Languages & Literatures Courses. The CFP for that roundtable noted “Despite the proliferation of literature dedicated to the interdisciplinary nature of DH, the resources available to explore their inclusion and applications in FLL classroom are still scattered.” As Roopika Risam outlines in New Digital Worlds: Postcolonial Digital Humanities in Theory, Praxis, and Pedagogy, postcolonial DH pedagogy can take place in the undergraduate classroom. This panel explores how foreign language and literature faculty, informed by movements like postcolonial DH, #transformDH, and GO::DH, have been deploying DH pedagogy and projects in the undergraduate language classroom. The panel includes foreign language faculty, digital humanists, and data scientists. Additionally, presenters highlight how DH practitioners, teachers, and scholars can benefit from actively collaborating with the data science community. The perspectives represented on the panel reflect the necessity of collaboration to identify, develop, and build the infrastructure and resources to effectively implement DH pedagogy in the foreign language and literature classroom.
