About ADHO

adho_logo_largeThe Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) is an umbrella organisation whose goals are to promote and support digital research and teaching across arts and humanities disciplines, drawing together humanists engaged in digital and computer-assisted research, teaching, creation, dissemination, and beyond, in all areas reflected by its diverse membership. ADHO supports initiatives for publication, presentation, collaboration, and training; recognises and supports excellence in these endeavours; and acts as an community-based consultative and advisory force. In doing so, ADHO embraces and coordinates activity across its constituent organisations: the European Association for Digital Humanities (EADH, founded in 1973 as the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing), the Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH, founded in 1978), the Canadian Society for Digital Humanities / Société canadienne des humanités numériques (CSDH/SCHN, founded in 1986 as the Consortium for Computers in the Humanities / Consortium pour ordinateurs en sciences humaines), centerNet, the Australasian Association for Digital Humanities  (aaDH), and the Japanese Association for Digital Humanites (JADH).
