News from the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations

Welcome to ADHO’s newsletter! In this periodic email, we share recent ADHO activities as well as those of our constituent organizations, SIGs, journals, and more. Know someone who would like to receive our newsletter? Encourage them to sign up here.

New ADHO Officers and Committee Chairs

One of the true constants in the ADHO world is change; another is our need, as an all-volunteer organization, for dedicated colleagues to serve in many different leadership and service roles. We’ve been tremendously fortunate in our people, and it’s a pleasure to introduce several people who’ve joined our Executive and Constituent Organisations Boards over the past several months, and of course to thank those whose terms have ended.

New Protocols for Governance, Admissions

We are pleased to inform you that ADHO now has new governance and admissions protocols. The Governance protocol describes ADHO’s structure and functions. The Admissions protocol establishes the procedure for the admission of new organizations to the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations. As part of the Admissions protocol, we are revitalizing our Affiliated Organizations (AO) program. Learn more about Constituent and Affiliated Organization membership.

The update of these documents was required by the major change in governance of ADHO, initiated several years ago. These structural changes (see details on governance here) have an impact on the admission of new Constituent Organizations (COs).


In Honour of International Women’s Day

In honour of the annual International Women’s Day, held on March 8, 2023, ADHO’s Communications team launched a list of Digital Humanities projects by and/or about women, trans and nonbinary people, and gender non-conforming people. We’re still collecting suggestions, so please reply to our tweet to share a project, or you can email us at

ACH 2023 will host its annual conference virtually on June 29-July 1, 2023. The conference will feature a range of sessions, including individual papers and lightning talks, panels and roundtables, installations and performances, and a poster session. ACH 2023 recognizes that digital humanities scholarship is inextricably sociopolitical. Therefore, we have chosen to forgo a theme to emphasize the inherent sociopolitical nature of our work, with particular emphasis on social justice in multiple contexts: anti-racist work, Indigenous studies, cultural and critical ethnic studies, intersectional feminism, postcolonial and decolonial studies, disability studies, and queer studies. The keynote roundtable will feature a conversation about accessibility and digital scholarship. Registration information will be posted soon on the conference website. Questions can be directed to the conference planning committee at

JADH is seeking proposals for JADH2023, “Possibilities for Data-Driven Humanities,” held virtually by the National Institute of Japanese Literature on September 20-22, 2023, around 9am to 6pm in Japanese standard time. The recent global spread of open science has led to data-driven science, and expectations are also growing for the humanities. Data-driven research in the humanities is still in its infancy, and in many fields, it is rather necessary to construct data for this purpose. Therefore, this conference welcomes a wide range of presentations not only on methods and results of data-driven research but also on data construction in anticipation of such research. Moreover, research topics related to the world's diverse practices in digital humanities are welcome, as in previous years. The call for papers is now open. Please submit your paper here by May 7, 2023 (11:59 pm, HAST). Presenters will be notified of acceptance of their paper on May 29, 2023.

Please submit abstracts via the open conference system by 11:59 PM, May 7, 2023 (HAST). Abstracts submitted should be of 500-1000 words in length in English, including the title. Presenters will be notified of acceptance on May 29, 2023.
