GO::DH is ADHO’s first official SIG

Global Outlook :: Digital Humanities (GO::DH) is the first official Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO).

Thanks to Neil Fraistat and Lisa Spiro at ADHO for coordinating the announcement and to Neil, Harold Short, and Ray Siemens for their early advice and, in Ray’s case especially, the help provided by INKE in setting up our extremely productive meeting in Cuba.


Busy week

The GlobalOutlook::Digital Humanities Community has had a busy week… and it is only Tuesday!

As Alex Gil reported to the globaloutlookdh-l mailing list this morning, the MLA conference in Boston proved especially fruitful.

This year was particularly exhilarating because of a confluence of factors. This year’s president, Michael Berubé, received a standing ovation for his impassioned presidential adress in defense of adjunct faculty. DH continued to be on the rise, showcasing now active detractors. Finally, the world of digital scholarship is opening up to the idea of a true internationalization as a cadre of bright minds debates race, gender, sexuality and the digital archive bravely and productively….

The purpose of these talks was to open the conversation, of course. I was happy to learn that Cathy Davidson and HASTAC have already begun plans to host their annual conference in Peru, with the collaboration of digital scholars from South America. We are planning to meet virtually in February to see where our efforts overlap, and hopefully begin a collaboration with them with graduate students as the main focus.

I also had a chance to have a long cup of coffee with Geoffrey Rockwell, of DH fame. We talked about possible collaborations with 4Humanities, who as some of you may remember, started a ‘correspondent’ program in 2011 to learn more about digital scholarship from around the world. We will continue those conversations with Geoffrey and Alan Liu in the days to come. Hopefully we will have some good news to report back to you.

The big issues facing us this week are establishing a more formal administrative structure to help oversee the many exciting new connections and more fully integrate ourselves into the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO) infrastructure. Stay tuned for announcements on both these fronts in the next couple of days.

In the meantime, if you are working on projects that help promote contact among researchers, institutions, and students in High, Mid, and Low Income Economies, please consider letting us know and joining our Special Interest Group.

The Lethbridge Journal Incubator: Leveraging the Educational Potential of the Scholarly Communication Process

The Lethbridge Journal incubator is an experiment in the sustainability of academic publishing. The incubator attempts to ensure this sustainability by aligning the publishing processes with the research, teaching, and service missions of the University. Instead of drawing resources away from these central missions, academic communication under this model become a resource that materially improves […]
