We are pleased to announce the Australasian Association for Digital Humanities (aaDH).
The formation of the Association is the outcome of a workshop, sponsored by the Australian Academy of the Humanities, held on 22 March 2011 at the Australian National University . The workshop brought together 40 leading researchers, project directors and sector representatives to plan for the establishment of an Australasian professional association. Two international guests, Professor Ray Siemens (Canada Research Chair in Humanities Computing at Victoria University) and Dr Patrik Svensson (Director of HUMlab, the digital research centre at Umeå University, Sweden) gave keynote lectures that positioned Australasian digital humanities research in a global context.
We are busily developing a membership model for the Association as well as planning for our first conference. Stay in tough by subscribing to the Digital Humanities announce list.
