Welcome to DH 2015!
Heading to Australia for Digital Humanities 2015, or wishing you were? To help visitors get acquainted with Australian culture, Program Committee chair Deb Verhoeven has teamed up with friends on Facebook (who include novelists, editors, literature professors, filmmakers, screenwriters, academics, media producers and people who just like to read Australian books) to create a reading list and share two Spotify playlists. The notes below are from Deb (with occasional light editing). Enjoy!

The ADHO Conference Coordinating Committee now invites proposals to host the following two DH conferences, in 2017 and 2018. Traditionally, the DH conference alternated only between North America and Europe, but a new protocol is meant to broaden the geographical distribution of ADHO events. DH 2015 is the first ADHO joint conference to be held in another region of the globe, and the 2016 conference will return to Europe. We therefore solicit proposals to host: DH 2017 anywhere in North America; and DH 2018 anywhere in the world, but with a strong preference for sites outside Europe and the US or Canada.
