The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) promotes and supports digital research and teaching across all arts and humanities disciplines, acting as a community-based advisory force, and supporting excellence in research, publication, collaboration and training.
The following organizations are current members of ADHO:
- The European Association for Digital Humanities (EADH)
- Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH)
- Canadian Society for Digital Humanities / Société canadienne des humanités numériques (CSDH/SCHN)
- Australasian Association for Digital Humanities (aaDH)
- Japanese Association for Digital Humanites (JADH)
- Humanistica, L'association francophone des humanités numériques/digitales (Humanistica)
The yearly ADHO conference is also the occasion for handing out a number of prizes. The triennial Antonio Zampolli Prize for a singular project or accomplishment was awarded at this year’s DH conference. In honor of its 30th anniversary, the 2017 Zampolli Prize has been awarded to the Textual Encoding Initiative community.
After the very successful conference in Montréal, the work of the ADHO Steering Committee mostly deals with looking forward and preparing for next year’s conference in Mexico City. In this message I’d like to give a short overview of my main tasks in the past year as chair of the Steering Committee.
Diversity and inclusivity are still one of the most prominent issues on my agenda as chair of the Steering Committee. I have addressed this in several ways and I will only mention the most important ones.
