Dear all,

ADHO  http://www.adho.org/  and
centerNet http://digitalhumanities.org/centernet/  invite
all members of ADHO constituent organizations to attend a joint Annual
General Meeting (AGM) as part of the Digital Humanities 2013 conference.
The AGM will take place on Friday, July 19th from 12:00 - 1:30pm, with a
focus on two new international DH initiatives, GO::DH and DH Commons. It
will end with a “SIG Slam,” where those interested in starting an ADHO
Special Interest Group will be able to give one-minute pitches and then
meet in small groups with others interested in working with them.

After a few business announcements, the session will begin with a
presentation by Ryan Cordell and Isabel Galina, who along with Laurent
Romary are the Co-Editors-in-Chief of centerNet’s new publication,
DHCommons, an overlay journal for peer reviewing digital humanities
projects that will launch in the coming year. Following Ryan and Isabel
will be Dan O’Donnell and Alex Quinn, who will be presenting on Global
Outlook:: Digital Humanities  http://www.globaloutlookdh.org/ , ADHO’s
first sponsored special interest group. The final 20 minutes of the AGM
will feature ADHO’s first “SIG Slam.” Some potential SIGs already suggested
include: DH and Libraries, DH and Linked Open Data, DH and Bioinformatics,
DH and Postcolonialism, DH and Small Liberal Arts Colleges, DH and Social
Justice, DH and Born Digital Preservation, and DH and Disability.

There will be 50 box lunches available on a first come, first serve basis.

We hope to see you there!
