The note below is from the Humanist Discussion Group.
On behalf of The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO), I’m delighted to announce the creation of our first Special Interest Group: Global Outlook::Digital Humanities (GO::DH) and to invite your participation.
GO::DH is a Community of Interest whose purpose is to address barriers that hinder communication and collaboration among researchers and students of the Digital Arts, Humanities, and Cultural Heritage sectors across and between High, Mid, and Low Income Economies.
The core activities of GO::DH are Discovery, Community-Building, Research, and Advocacy. Its goal is to leverage the complementary strengths, interests, abilities, and experiences of participants through special projects and events, profile and publicity activity, and by encouraging collaboration among individuals, projects, and institutions. It is founded on the principle that work is being done in many countries and regions and that we all have much to learn from each other.
Participation in GO::DH is open to all who share its aims. If you are interested in participating in this initiative, you can visit the GO::DH website http://www.globaloutlookdh.org/ , join the GO::DH mailing list (http://listserv.uleth.ca/mailman/listinfo/globaloutlookdh-l), or follow it on Facebook or Twitter (@globaloutlookdh).
