Digital Humanities is the annual international conference of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO). ADHO is an umbrella organization whose goals are to promote and support digitally-based research and teaching across the arts and humanities disciplines. It embraces three ‘constituent organisations’: the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing (ALLC), the Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH) and the Society for Digital Humanities/Société pour l’étude des médias interactifs (SDH-SEMI).
The Digital Humanities 2011 conference (DH2011) is hosted by the Stanford University Library
The Digital Humanities Conference grew out of joint international conferences co-sponsored by ALLC and ACH which date back to 1989. DH2011 is the 23rd joint international conference of these associations and the 6th to have the designation ‘Digital Humanities’.
The joint conferences in turn grew out of separate conferences organised by ACH and ALLC before this time. DH2011 is the 38th international ALLC conference, and the 31st international ACH conference. In addition to its active participation in Digital Humanities conferences, SDH-SEMI also runs an annual conference as part the Canadian Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities.
Information about the joint international conferences from 1989 to 2010 may be found on the home page of the ADHO website, or on one of the sponsoring Association websites, e.g. the ALLC website.
