The aaDH Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are a means for members of the aaDH to become involved in fresh and focused areas of activity under the auspices of the larger association structure. All current members of the aaDH can propose and become involved in a SIG and may appoint their own Convener.
If you would like to learn more about SIGS, contact our Sig Liaison, Dr Tim Sherratt.

This SIG covers work across the humanities and social science disciplines which relies on computational processing of language samples, by statistical means or by visualisation. The aim of the Group is to advance work in this area in Australia and New Zealand by forming a community of researchers. The Group’s structures and activities are intended to promote research partnerships and collaborations, to make sharing of formal and informal expertise easier, and to help in the induction of new participants, whether new to research or just to this kind of research.
