ADHO Chair Neil Fraistat offered the following summary of ADHO's Steering Committee meeting at DH 2013 and activities over the past year:
Inclusivity is a core value of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations and of the associations and communities of practice brought together under its umbrella. However, like many projects in humanities computing, the creation of inclusive enabling structures within ADHO must remain a work in progress. This work requires: regular, careful, humble, honest self-examination; conscious efforts to create an environment of transparency and fair-dealing; and an inviting stance toward the input of under-represented groups or disciplines.
The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) is pleased to announce that the venue of Digital Humanities 2015 will be Sydney, Australia. The conference will take place at the Parramatta campus of the University of Western Sydney from 29 June-3 July 2015, during the mild Sydney winter. This will be the first Digital Humanities conference held outside of North America or Europe.
ADHO and centerNet invite all members of ADHO constituent organizations to attend a joint Annual General Meeting (AGM) as part of the Digital Humanities 2013 conference. The AGM will take place on Friday, July 19th from 12:00 - 1:30pm, with a focus on two new international DH initiatives, GO::DH and DH Commons.
The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) invites its members to propose a Special Interest Group (SIG). By forming a SIG, those with similar professional specialties, interests, and aptitudes can exchange ideas, stay current, and mobilize to pursue common goals across the boundaries of ADHO’s individual Constituent Organizations.
Based on centerNet's DayofDH iniatiative (http://digitalhumanities.org/centernet/initiatives/) the aim of this project is to document for one day what digital humanists do, but in Spanish or Portuguese. This particular version focuses on digital humanists from the Portuguese and Spanish speaking countries or researchers from other parts of the world that work primarily in these languages.
As part of its support of the digital humanities community, ADHO is pleased to provide in-name sponsorship to the following conferences:
