Satdeep Gill | Such Conversations Matter S2E24

…in today’s world, I think even humanities is about digital humanities. So you have to start forming those connections. You have to think about what’s the state in the digital world? Can I directly contribute to that aspect if it’s not really digitized?

Meet Satdeep Gill, a linguist working to preserve languages and cultures with the help of technology. He is the Senior Program Officer, Culture and Heritage at Wikimedia Foundation. His journey with Wikipedia started in 2009 by becoming a volunteer and then a few years later he was representing the Punjabi language community at national and international forums within Wikimedia Foundation and other places as well. Most recently he represented the Wikimedia Foundation at the G20 Culture Working Group organised by UNESCO and Ministry of Culture, Government of India. Satdeep is a passionate story teller, poet, writer and traveller and is fluent in Punjabi, Hindi, English, French and is currently learning Balinese Bahasa.

Satdeep and I met online at an internal event of an online media organisation. Since then we have stayed in touch and admired each others’ work and our passion towards that.

He appeared in Episode 24 of Season 2 talking about Preserving Languages thru Tech
