The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) deplores the February 2022 invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Army under orders from President Putin, and the ongoing violence and suffering it is causing, especially among the Ukrainian people. We join colleagues worldwide in condemning the invasion and asserting solidarity with the Ukrainian nation and its people. Armed conflict is not a solution and our thoughts are with those who are affected by the horrific impact of war.
The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) states publicly, directly, and specifically that Black Lives Matter; that we stand in solidarity with people around the world protesting against structural racism and other forms of oppression and discrimination; and that we recognize that we have work to do in our own digital humanities communities in order to become fully anti-racist and non-discriminatory organizations.
Update: The revoking of the relevant Executive Order in January 2021 means that this advisory is no longer in effect
The Chair of the ADHO Steering Committee writes: ADHO is sharply aware of the uncertain political situation in the US, especially in relation to the travel restrictions that were announced, and of the impact this may have on DH in general and all DH conferences to come.
