Hi Folks –

In response to discussion in and around several related things – among them the Digging into Data initiative, the Networks of Centres of Excellence program and, most importantly, the collaborative, cooperative and collegial spirit of our community – it was suggested that we establish a discussion list intended specifically to act as a space for coordinating and facilitating collaboration in Digital Humanities initiatives, serving also as a complement to what is provided via other mechanisms and extant collaborative structures in our community.  While the list will have some slight technical moderation, it isn’t intended that the list have a leader or moderator; rather, content and results will be driven by its participants.

If you’d like to be added as a member of this list, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line.

All best,
