Digital Humanities conferences, 1989-2013

July 17th, 2013 by Gabriel Bodard

It’s recently been announced that the DH conference in 2015 will be held at the University of Sydney, the first time it has ever been held outside the axis of North America and northern Europe. It’s been as far south as Tempe Arizona and as far east as Oulu, Finland; I’ve plotted this little Google Map to show the distribution, which is simultaneously impressive within its borders, and staggeringly insular from a global perspective.

I hope this means that in 2015 we’ll see more South- and East- Asian and southern African as well as antipodean scholars able to attend the conference for the first time. In the name of ADHO’s current policies of greater inclusiveness, I applaud this extension of our borders.
