  "abstract": "<p>This report was commissioned to create an impact pathway for the Programming Historian to develop and sustain engagement in the Global South. It came about in response to a surge in readers from Central and South America following the launch of the <em>Programming Historian en espa&ntilde;ol</em> in 2017, the establishment of <em>Programming Historian en fran&ccedil;ais</em> as a means of reaching communities in francophone Africa, and data suggesting user communities in cities associated with the Indian information technology sector.</p>\n\n<p>Research for the report was undertaken by Penny Andrews between February and April 2020, supervised by James Baker. Research activities included meetings with members of the <em>Programming Historian </em>team, analysis of the 2018 Programming Historian user survey, and conversations with impact and community managers in comparable third-sector organisations.</p>\n\n<p>The finished report was written by Penny Andrews on the behalf of the <em>Programming Historian </em>Project Team. The compressed nature of the research means that the report is one-time snapshot of project activities. As such, many activities undertaken by the <em>Programming Historian </em>Project Team are not covered by the present report.</p>\n\n<p>The report was generously funded by the <a href=\"\">University of Sussex&rsquo;s ESRC Impact Accelerator Account Fast Track Engagement Scheme</a>.</p>",
