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 nfraistatfraistat
