Reminder: Come to the ADHO AGM on July 19

If you're at Digital Humanities 2013, be sure to attend ADHO and centerNet's joint Annual General Meeting (AGM)  on Friday, July 19th from 12:00 - 1:15pm in Embassy C. It will feature presentations on two new international DH initiatives, GO::DH and DH Commons. The AGM will end with a “SIG Slam,” where those interested in starting an ADHO Special Interest Group will be able to give one-minute pitches and then meet in small groups with others interested in working with them.
The program for the AGM includes:

  • a brief business meeting
  • a presentation by Ryan Cordell and Isabel Galina, who along with Laurent Romary are the Co-Editors-in-Chief of centerNet’s new publication, DHCommons, an overlay journal for peer reviewing digital humanities projects that will launch in the coming year.
  • a presentation by Dan O’Donnell and Alex Gil on Global Outlook:: Digital Humanities, ADHO’s first sponsored special interest group (SIG)
  • ADHO’s first “SIG Slam.” Some potential SIGs already suggested include: DH and Libraries (Zoe Borovsky,  Glen Worthey, Sarah Potvin, and Angela Courtney), DH and Linked Open Data (Leif Isaksen), DH and Bioinformatics (Andrew Prescott), DH and Postcolonialism (Roopika Risam), DH and Small Liberal Arts Colleges (Adeline Koh), DH and Social Justice (Jentery Sayers and Ben Miller), and DH and Universal Design (George Williams).

There will be 50 box lunches available on a first come, first serve basis.
We hope to see you there!
