The DiRT directory and centerNet are pleased to announce that the DiRT directory has been adopted as the newest centerNet initiative. As a directory of tools for digital research, maintained by an international community of volunteers, DiRT will benefit from closer ties to centerNet’s member centers around the world, as well as to centerNet’s DHCommons project directory.
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.
The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) seeks applicants for its 2015-2016 Communications fellowship. Working on a small team, the fellow will write news releases, blog posts and announcements about ADHO, its constituent organizations, and the broader digital humanities community; monitor and update ADHO’s social media presence; maintain its web site; help to develop and implement ADHO’s outreach strategy; and perform other communications-related responsibilities. The Communications fellow should anticipate spending approximately 3-4 hours per week on the position.

The ADHO Awards Committee has selected the joint CSDH/ACH Conference as the venue for the the Lisa Lena Opas-Hänninen Young Scholar Prize for 2015.
The prize will be awarded in recognition of a young scholar who makes a significant contribution to scholarship using digital technology at the 2015 Joint CSDH/ACH conference.
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.
The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) is pleased to announce that Marie Saldana, doctoral student in Architecture and Digital Humanities at the University of California, Los Angeles, has received the Paul Fortier prize awarded for the best paper presented by a young scholar at the 2014 Digital Humanities conference.
