Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

ADHO is committed to fostering a dynamic conversation with the digital humanities community on all matters related to equity, diversity, and inclusion. We support ongoing efforts to combat systemic and structural racism and all forms of discrimination and marginalization. Amongst our initiatives, we have an established Multi-lingualism & Multi-culturalism Committee tasked with developing and promoting policies around linguistic and cultural inclusion. ADHO’s Intersectional Inclusion Task Force (2022-2024) is charged with addressing issues of racial discrimination and social injustice. Furthermore, our Conference Coordinating Committee has created a Code of Conduct meant to ensure a safe, respectful, and collegial conference environment for the benefit of the community.

If you have ideas and/or feedback regarding ADHO’s inclusion efforts, please contact us at
