        Subject: Call for ADHO Special Interest Groups

Dear all,

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 <nfraistat at gmail.com>.
Please see the SIG
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.
