Our Mission

The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) promotes and supports digital research and teaching across all arts and humanities disciplines, acting as a community-based advisory force, and supporting excellence in research, publication, collaboration and training.
The following organizations are current members of ADHO:



Every three years, the Digital Humanities conference is held in North America. At DH2017, ADHO’s Steering Committee voted to hold DH2020 in Ottawa from July 22nd to July 24th 2020. The conference will be co-hosted by Carleton University and the University of Ottawa. The two universities have a history of DH collaboration and are partners on the Digital Humanities Summer Institute: Technologies East, the only bilingual digital humanities summer training initiative in Canada.

ADHO is excited to announce that the annual DH conference submissions will be given double blind peer review for the first time this year. While in the past reviewers were kept private from those submitting their scholarly work for consideration, this change means that neither the reviewer nor the applicant will be aware of the other's identity. We believe this will improve the outcomes of the conference by minimizing unconscious biases that can emerge during the review process.
