It is urgent to gather scientific efforts around the transdisciplinary construction and management of a national online repository of our multilingual and multicultural heritage. This is one of the proposals of the ABRALIN Project and the ANPOLL Sociolinguistics WG entitled Platform of Brazilian Linguistic Diversity, which involves researchers from different areas of knowledge and partnerships with other institutions, such as the Portuguese Language Museum. In this space, we want to highlight the relationship of the construction and implementation of this platform to the area of Digital Humanities. The Digital Humanities consist of a relatively new scientific territory, arising from the intersection between the Humanities, Social Sciences and Digital Technologies. This challenging contemporary way of producing science involves the production, storage and circulation of knowledge in the same
digital environment. These parameters are in line with the GO (Global Open) FAIR BRASIL movement, an initiative that aims to make fragmented and disconnected data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and, therefore, Reusable (FAIR) by machines and people. These discussions involve ethical issues and work horizons for open, diverse and socioculturally referenced science and education via mapping of languages and varieties in/from Brazilian territory. Thus, in this event, we aim to share with society such reflections and potentialities of (re)use of linguistic data and knowledge produced in the Brazilian territory. These discussions are also aligned with Open Science, a movement that proposes structural changes in the way scientific knowledge is produced, organized, shared and reused. It is a new way of doing science, more collaborative, transparent and sustainable.
