To encourage a welcoming, inclusive climate for participants at its annual Digital Humanities conference, the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) has released a new code of conduct, available at http://adho.org/administration/conference-coordinating-program-committee/adho-conference-code-conduct. This code of conduct lays out broad principles to foster a safe, welcoming conference environment that respects personal, cultural, and linguistic differences.
The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) is pleased to announce the formation of its third Special Interest Group, Linked Open Data (DH-LOD). Linked Open Data conveys the idea of the Web as platform for loosely-coupled, distributed services that offer data in an accessible, open way, following the Linked Data principles as described by Tim Berners-Lee.
The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) is pleased to announce new membership-only rates, which we hope will remove any financial barriers to participation.
ADHO affiliates around the world will be sponsoring or co-sponsoring conferences in 2014. Check them out! They include:
As a way of giving back to ADHO, the Digital Humanities Summer Institute
(The following announcement about the 2014 Digital Humanities Summer Institute comes from Alyssa Arbuckle, Metadata Architect in the Electronics Textual Cultures Lab at the University of Victoria. Note that a discount is available for ADHO members.)
LLC: The Journal of Digital Scholarship in the Humanities will publish a special issue of top papers from Digital Humanities 2013, the annual conference of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations, held this summer at the University of Nebraska. We invite submissions from anyone who presented at the meeting, including those who gave long and short papers, or who participated in panels and poster sessions.
We are pleased to announce the formation of a new ADHO Special Interest Group, GeoHumanities. The vision for the GeoHumanities SIG began at the DH2013 conference in Lincoln, where a number of panels and papers addressed questions of place and geographic connections and contexts. The intent of the SIG is to be inclusive of spatial, spatial-temporal and ‘placial’ perspectives, and the Geo-prefix for its name reflects geography’s traditional attention to all of these.
