FYI: ADHO Call for Special Interest Group Proposals
Discipline of Linguistics
The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) invites its members to propose a Special Interest Group (SIG). By forming a SIG, those with similar professional specialties, interests, and aptitudes can exchange ideas, stay current, and mobilize to pursue common goals across the boundaries of ADHO’s individual Constituent Organizations.
For example, ADHO’s first SIG, Global Outlook::Digital Humanities http://www.globaloutlookdh.org/ (GO::DH), aims to reduce barriers to communication and collaboration “among researchers and students of the Digital Arts, Humanities, and Cultural Heritage sectors in High, Mid, and Low Income Economies” by promoting discovery, community-building, research, and advocacy.
To propose a SIG, http://adho.org/administration/steering/draft-protocol-adho-special-interest-groups-sigs, an elected or appointed contact person should submit a description of the
group to ADHO’s Chair, currently Neil Fraistat firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please see the SIG protocol, http://adho.org/administration/steering/protocol-adho-special-interest-groups-sigs, for directions about producing the SIG proposal, a model proposal, and further information.
If you will be attending DH 2013, we invite you to a SIG Slam, where those interested in starting a SIG can do one-minute pitches about them and meet with others who share their interests. The SIG Slam will take place during the joint ADHO/centerNet General Members meeting at lunchtime on Friday, July 19th.
