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:
- The European Association for Digital Humanities (EADH)

The late EADH chair (2010-2012), Lisa Lena Opas-Hänninen, attended conferences not only in the digital humanities but also in other disciplines. She was invariably interested in and encouraging of young scholars in particular, and she also spent a great deal of time in informal conversation with a wide range of colleagues. The Lisa Lena Opas-Hänninen Young Scholar Prize was established in 2013 to honour her memory. The LLOH Prize is awarded to early-career scholars, that is, students, graduate students, or postdoctoral researchers at different conferences each year.
Prof. William Kretzschmar, Jr. presented the Lisa Lena Opas-Hänninen awards for best poster by a young scholar at the Methods in Dialectology XV banquet on Thurs. Aug. 14, 2014. The prize competition and reception were generously sponsored by the Alliance for Digital Humanities Organizations; the competition was open to students or scholars whose Ph.D. was earned less than three years earlier.
